Title:

    Wall Mounted Level: A Cooperative Mixed Reality Game About Reconciliation

Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    Wall Mounted Level is a cooperative mixed-reality game that leverages multimodal interactions to support its narrative of ‘reconciliation’. In it, players control their digitally projected characters and navigate them across a hand drawn physical sculpture as they collaborate towards a shared goal: finding one another. !e digital and physical characteristics of the game are further reflected in the ways in which players interact with it, by making use of digital input devices and physical ‘touch’. !e abstract and poster discuss the design choices that were made for creating the varying modes of engagement and the motivation behind player collaboration in ‘Wall Mounted Level.
