Computer Games andCommunication Robert Wilson Advisor: Cedric Langbort
Questions • What data needs to be shared? • How does the type of communication affect performance? • Does the interface matter?
World of Warcraft • Fun because there are so many aspects! • Too complicated for a complete analysis • Can we design a simpler game where communication is still important?
Ouija Board • Ouija=oui + ja=yes-yes • n = number of players • ai , bi = ghost field parameters • ui = user input • êi = direction
Communication? • Still important, no man is an island! • Directions perpendicular to your own make it easy • Can the ghosts help?
Future Work • Display information differently • Limit communication • Rounds with a team captain
