Title Mobility Gaming - Social Interaction in Massive Multiplayer Online Games within a mobile context
Author(s) Johnsson, Fredrik
Date 2006
English abstract
“Mobility Gaming” entails research done on how the social interaction within MMOG / MMORPG can be brought into a mobile context. The central issues in the research how MMOG players communicate and interact with each other today and how it can incorporate user mobility. Based upon this the research is focused on how the connection between non physical space, game world, and the physical space can be interconnected to enable the interaction to still occur. A prototype environment is created in with the user interaction can be tested and experienced. Cellphone and PDA clients have been developed alongside a server service to facilitate user based testing within this environment. The research done during this thesis have shown me that the user desires to reach each other is a very viable but not developed area for interaction within game environments.
