A Survey of Characteristic Engine Features for by Kim J.L. Nevelsteen

By Kim J.L. Nevelsteen

This e-book scrutinizes pervasive video games from a technological point of view, targeting the sub-domain of video games that fulfill the factors that they utilize digital online game components. within the machine online game undefined, using a video game engine to construct video games is usual, yet present online game engines don't aid pervasive video games. because the computing device online game is already wealthy with online game engines, this booklet investigates: (i) if a online game engine should be repurposed to level pervasive video games; (ii) if gains describing a would-be pervasive video game engine might be pointed out; (iii) utilizing these gains, if an structure be present in an analogous ‘product line’ as an present engine and that may be prolonged to level pervasive video games (iv) and, eventually, if there any demanding situations and open concerns that stay.

The method of answering those questions is twofold. First, a survey of pervasive video games is performed, accumulating technical information and distilling an element function set that allows pervasive video games. moment, one of those online game engine is selected as candidate within the comparable product line as a would-be pervasive video game engine, aiding as a lot of the characteristic set as attainable. The structure is prolonged to aid the full characteristic set and used to level a pervasive online game referred to as Codename: Heroes, validating the structure, highlighting positive factors of specific significance and determining any open concerns. the belief of this publication is usually twofold: the ensuing characteristic set is tested to coincide with the definition of pervasive video games and comparable paintings. And secondly, a digital global engine is chosen as candidate within the similar product line as a would-be pervasive online game engine. Codename: Heroes was once effectively carried out, reaping some great benefits of utilizing the chosen engine; improvement time was once low, spanning quite a few months. Codename: Heroes used to be staged two times, without balance concerns or down time.
