  • 1 Emotional Flowers •  Creating a Virtual Plant by performing Facial Expressions (sadness, joy, anger) …   Individually (Creation)   In Collaboration with other players (Co-Creation) •  Multi-Player Online Game for Children (8-14 years old as main Target Group) •  V4, developed within Human Computer Interaction & Usability Unit http://icts.sbg.ac.at
  • 1 Research Focus   How to address User Experience in the game development? Co-Design Live Game Expert User In-situ Evaluation User Tests Workshop Event with Field Study Evaluation of Creation Part with Children Children Concept First Concept Second Third Creation Prototype Co-Creation Prototype Prototype Human Computer Interaction & Usability Unit http://icts.sbg.ac.at
  • 1 Technical Details – Game •  Programming Language: ActionScript 3.0 & Adobe Flex •  Combiled for Adobe AIR •  Multi Server Architecture (PHP server, Java Chat server, Local C++ Stefan server for facial recognition software) •  More technical details ask: „Stefan Riegler“ & „Daniel Schwaiger“ Daniel Human Computer Interaction & Usability Unit http://icts.sbg.ac.at
  • 1 Facial Recognition •  SHORE (Sophisticated High-Speed Object Recognition Engine) •  developed by •  Logitech Quickcam Pro9000 Human Computer Interaction & Usability Unit http://icts.sbg.ac.at

  • Co-Creation Part Collaboration Cooperation Co-Experience Human Computer Interaction & Usability Unit http://icts.sbg.ac.at
  • 3 Active User Involvement   Co-Design Workshop   Instant Card Technique   Idea Generation for the Co-Creation Part   Overall Conclusion of Results:   Children want to cooperate, play against each other and communicate in a game.   Children want to know, how good other players are for comparing themselves with the others.

  • 3 Field Study (Start Event Today!) •  Three-Week Field Evaluation •  Installation in 12 Households •  Children get Experience Package (Feedback Cards, Camera, Diary, Vidoe Diary ... Interviews, Questionnaire) Human Computer Interaction & Usability Unit http://icts.sbg.ac.at
  • 4 Conclusions •  Active User Involvement provides valuable input for shaping the Game Details (e.g. features). •  Iterative User Evaluation as a fix Part of the Development Process is effective to eliminate problems in the Game Play. •  Developers and Evaluators should work close together on solutions for found problems in order to improve the Game (keep the User’ Needs in mind) •  Working together with Children is very interesting and challenging, they are very honest in their feedback. •  User Feedback needs to be balanced with the Development Goals and overall Game Concept. Human Computer Interaction & Usability Unit http://icts.sbg.ac.at
  • Still, there are a lot of open issues and questions, which need to be improved in the Game Development Process... we are working on that :) Human Computer Interaction & Usability Unit http://icts.sbg.ac.at
