Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2010, Pages 15~23
In action games such as shooting games or platform games, dodging enemy objects is crucial since the player character dies or loses energy when it collides with any enemy object. In this paper, we investigates how the difficulty of these games changes according to the existence of salient objects. Since salient objects attract the player's attention, other non-salient objects may be unattended by the player, resulting in failing to dodge them. We experimented on the influence of salient objects on the difficulty of a game, and found out that the subjects who played the game without salient objects performed better than the subjects who played the game with salient objects. This paper investigates a human perceptual issue that could affect the game difficulty and suggest a potential guideline for game design and planning.

The entertainment has been quite affected by the development of scientific technology, so that the kind of contents and the type of enjoyment entertained to the people has been versatile and changed. As this trend goes on, the expectation level of the entertainment becomes gradually increased for the people's point of view. The proposed system can be designated as a physically recognizable 3D dancing game in which the avatar resembling the participant dances as tracking the face of the game participant. By the result of the survey, it can conclude that the proposed game system would be expected as a new and fascinating game rather than the currently available games due to the fact that it will give more interests and self-involvement since augmented experience in entertainment is provided.
A Study on Player's Immersion by Difference of Input Control Devices in Computer Games
Yang, Shin-Duk ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2010, Pages 35~45
This study sets a hypothesis on that the use of input control devices, which are similar to what we experience in real life, to control activities in games increases players' immersion rate, and compares general input control devices with dedicated input control devices in order to show appropriate results. Accordingly the process of the study is derived and the hypothesis is substantiated by understanding the relationship between game controlling activities and immersion rate. Overall satisfaction survey result on the use of dedicated devices shows that most players responded that they felt immersed enough in games when used dedicated devices and were highly satisfied. The use of the dedicated devices had positive impact on the increase of immersion rate in general. In order to increase immersion rate with controlling activities in games, the use of input control devices that are easy to handle and enable precise control is required, which shows that it will bring more fun and more increased immersion rate.
A Study on MMORPG Factors in Game User's Motivation : A Game User's Desire Perspective
Yun, Jae-Sun ; Lim, Chan ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2010, Pages 47~56
This study analyzes MMORPG in user's desire perspective and tried to find specific motivation factors. In research result, character has been separated in user character, another user character, boss monster and support character. And character's factor analysis yielded three factors: visual attraction, psychological propensity and competence. The result of the regression analysis about character's motivation factor show that it is significantly different that motivation level and motivation factors from each character. This finding implies that specific motivation factors can serve to make strategy for motivate user's game playing.

Video Software Dealers Association v. Arnold Schwarzenegger(2009) of the United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit and its Implication to the Korean Game Law
Park, Min ; Hwang, Seung-Heum ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2010, Pages 65~78
In Video Software Dealers Association v. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the federal 9th Circuit Court decided that a California law imposing restrictions and a labeling requirement on the sale or rental of violent video games to minors (the "Act") violated rights guaranteed by the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution because: (1) the state introduced insufficient evidence to support a compelling interest that video games created psychological or neurological harm, (2) the Act was not the least-restrictive alternative to negate the harm, and (3) the lower, rational basis standard applicable to commercial speech did not apply to the Act's labeling requirements because the required label did not convey factual information. On the contrary, Korean Constitutional Court decided that "Harmful Medium to Youth" and "Preliminary Rate Classification" would be constitutional. However, under the least-restrictive method rule of the U. S. Court and Korean Court, overlap application of "Harmful Medium to Youth" and "Preliminary Rate Classification" could be a problem and it would be possible that stronger regulation among these would be found as unconstitutional.
A Impact of Technological Regime of Game Engine upon Game Development Performance
Chang, Yong-Ho ; Joung, Won-Jo ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2010, Pages 79~91
The research empirically analyzes the impact of technological regime of game engine upon game development performance. The results indicate that, first, technological regime of game engine determines game's genre distribution. Secondly, user friendly game engine regime(modular, generic and integrated API engine) induces higher genre diversity and lower genre concentration ratios. Thirdly, user friendly game engine regime(modular, generic and integrated API engine) is becoming more applied recently. Fourthly, innovation types and price types of game engine do not influence upon game engine trades. Those results point out that game engine's technological regime influences directly game development application and user friendly regime is increasingly more standardized.

Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2010, Pages 93~103
Game industry has been grown up with invigorating online game since 1990s and increased in the spending side by focusing on commercial business. Game, however, has displayed a role that can producing cyber culture with Machinima that is a kind of movie made by a game engine. It should be discussed that non-linear activity of game is disclosed being closely connected with the environment of online space. Accordingly, there are three ways for this study. The first, characteristics of game environment taken non-linear effect related to hypertext space is researched. The second, Machinima is discussed as expansion of hypertext literature. And the last, considering game as consumption of just playing, game is able to become the subject role that can create virtual culture with making a variety of Machinima. consequently, through dichotomy and a liner form between consumption and production in hypertext space leaded to non-liner situation, positive and active features of game that has taken the activity of virtual reality into the multimedia literature would be delivered.

Shin, Yong-Woo ; Chung, Tae-Choong ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2010, Pages 105~113
It takes quite amount of time to study a board game because there are many game characters and different stages are exist for board games. Also, the opponent is not just a single character that means it is not one on one game, but group vs. group. That is why strategy is needed, and therefore applying optimum learning is a must. If there were equal result that both are considered to be best ones during the course of learning stage, Heuristic which utilizes learning of problem area of Jul-Gonu was used to improve the speed of learning. To compare a normal character to an improved one, a jul-gonu game was created, and then they fought against each other. Improved character considered distance and attacked other one. As a result, improved character's ability was improved on learning speed.

Park, Won-Sub ; Hong, Hyun-Ki ; WhangBo, Taeg-Keun ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2010, Pages 115~125
In the field of game design, scenarios are essential part. But general-purpose tools for production of game scenarios have not been developed yet. In order to solve these problems, we studied the difference between game scenarios and other scenarios and analyzed scenario UCC(User Created Contents) and created suitable forms of game scenarios. To make OSMU(One Source Multi Use) easier, we use XML-based format of game scenario. To verify the possibility for practical application of XML-based format, we wrote a game scenario with scenario editor that we made and applied it to scenario-based game 'FEEL Online'.

Park, Sung-Jun ; An, Deug-Yong ; Oh, Seong-Suk ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2010, Pages 127~134
The secondary animation technology for the detailed objects including accessories is being studied and applied to the modern game development. The jiggle-bone deformer is used for 3D graphic tools as a technology to create the animation of these objects, but it is disadvantageous in that the real-time modification is difficult and the graphic developers need much time. The secondary animation can also be realized using a physical game engine, but the cost of animation process increases when many objects in a scene of a game are rendered, and it has a low efficiency. This paper proposes a dynamic jiggle-bone animation algorithm, which can be modified in real time and has the similar effect to the physical game engine. To evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithm, tests were conducted with varied number of bones and for the case of one scene with the animation of many jiggle-bones, and the results were adjudged relatively efficient.

Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2010, Pages 135~146
The development of image technologies in such area as broadcasting and movies has recently increased our attention to 3D stereoscopic images. In addition, the development of stereoscopic image representation technologies in 3D contents becomes more active over time due to the representational limitations of 2D images. Without limitation to the above-mentioned area, stereoscopic image technologies have been developed and studied so that they can be widely accessed in diverse areas including medical services and education. Due to the refined production, however, required to represent a three dimensional effects and the fatigue caused by the perception of a three dimensional effects, the stereoscopic image technologies are not combined into real time systems such as games where environments change unforeseeably. In this study we design a technique to adjust the depth scaling that will enable efficient management of a three dimensional effects and to relieve fatigue through automatic view point interval adjustment in accordance with situations based on the geometrical structure of the DirectX SDK graphic pipeline. Through this, we would like to suggest a new alternative idea to activate the production of games combined with stereoscopic image technologies.

Lee, Jeong-Jin ; Kang, Moon-Koo ; Lee, Ho ; Shin, Byeong-Seok ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2010, Pages 147~156
In this paper, we propose 3D cloud animation by cloud modeling method of 2D images retrieved from a meteorological satellite. First, on the satellite images, we locate numerous control points to perform thin-plate spline warping analysis between consecutive frames for the modeling of cloud motion. In addition, the spectrum channels of visible and infrared wavelengths are used to determine the amount and altitude of clouds for 3D cloud image reconstruction. Pre-integrated volume rendering method is used to achieve seamless inter-laminar shades in real-time using small number of slices of the volume data. The proposed method could successfully construct continuously moving 3D clouds from 2D satellite images at an acceptable speed and image quality.

Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2010, Pages 157~165
This paper presents a novel real-time rendering algorithm based on spherical coordinate system of the object using convex hull. While OpenGL rendering pipeline touches all vertices of an object, the proposed method takes account the only visible vertices by examining the visible triangles of the object. In order to determine the visible areas of the object in its spherical coordinate representation, the proposed method uses 3D geometric relation of 6 plane equations of the camera frustum and the bounding sphere of the object. In addition, we compute the convex hull of the object and its maximum side factors for hidden surface removal. Simulation results showed that the quality of result image is almost same compared to original image and rendering performance is greatly improved.
