Affection of Game Character's Jumping Motion Factors on Visual Effects
Go, Hye-Young ; Yoon, Seon-Jeong ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 11, issue 4, 2011, Pages 3~14
In this paper, affection of jumping motion factors on visual effects are studied for game character's natural motion realization. First, 3 kinds of games that realize natural motions are selected and 4-types of characters jumping motions are captured from it. Then, the motions are measured using four fundamental principles of jumping as takeoff strength, landing impact, landing elasticity and flexibility, and measured in motion factors as time, distance, angle either. Finally, consistent characteristics of visual effects and motion factors on jumping motion are suggested. The study could be used to basic information for realization of character's natural jumping motion.

Game level design is a collaborative work to create a virtual world for a computer game including maps, agents, monsters, objects, players and events based on predefined its game scenario. It is a promising collaborative design application. The game level design generally requires much time and cost, as the size of its target game space becomes huge. However, traditional game level design tools do not provide concurrency control mechanisms among multiple participating game designers. They do not provide consistency of undo and redo mechanisms for erroneous collaborative tasks during iterative modifications and updates of collaborative tasks among multiple designers. In this paper, we propose a concurrency control and a collaborative editing mechanism to enhance productivity of the collaborative game level design. The proposed system provides hierarchical structures of shared objects and a concurrency control mechanism for each object. The proposed system also provides a consistent undo and redo mechanism to enhance modifications and updates on intermediate results of the level design procedures.

Concentration is one of the most important factor in learning ability. It is important to improve concentration for learning ability. Most digital kids have been accustomed to addictive media like games since childhood, so traditional methods of teaching and learning has been difficult to give interests for them. Therefore introducing a new teaching methods was inevitable for students with low concentration. This is an experiment to prove the hypothesis that the concentration training by certain serious game would be helpful for improving students' concentration. Not only some serious games but also meditation by music was effective to improve concentration in the experiment. Average people is hard to immerge in meditation. but some serious games involve fun factors like curiosity, challenges, competitions and rewards. Games are not more negative to young people, will be helpful to society in various forms.

Choi, Dong-Seong ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 11, issue 4, 2011, Pages 37~48
As people increasingly play online games, numerous new features have been proposed to increase players' log-on time at online gaming sites. However, few studies have investigated why people continue to play certain online games. This research would verify that enjoyment experience could be explained by the conceptual framework. In the first, this study results indicate that customers would show a higher level of loyalty if they had an optimal experience with the games. The state of flow was felt when players were aware of opportunities for personal interaction and social interaction. The personal interaction could be motivated either to achieve the high cognitive performance or by providing the equity of distribution of the objective performance in order to examine players' cognitive performance; the social interaction can be motivated either to enhance a high level of self-esteem of player or to achieve the positive reputation in order to evaluate their self-esteem. This finding can answer the questions of what enjoyment experience is and why players are repeatedly playing specific online games.
A Study on the Creative Game Design Framework
Choi, Dong-Seong ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 11, issue 4, 2011, Pages 49~59
The creativity is the important ability required to game designers. But there is few research for the definition of creativity and creative thinking method. This study suggests that what creativity is and how to use creative thinking methods in the game design. In the first, this study analyzes three types of creativity meaning: revolutionary creativity, evolutionary creativity and impromptu creativity. In the second, this study suggests that how to use thinking methods that are mind map, brainstorming, check list and etc. The game designer's creativity can be improved by the suggestion of this study.

In console game, controller is important medium that connects the users and contents. And technical advance and rising demand for console game controller allows it to change the game contents. This study analyses differences between classic controller and Wii controller from a structuralist approach, especially metaphor and metonymy. Also this study analyses correlation between console game controller and game contents. Since diversification of console game controller is predicted, it's significant to study correlation between console game platform and contents.
Protecting Game Developers Under the Works-for-hire Clause of Copyright Law
Choi, Ji-Sun ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 11, issue 4, 2011, Pages 73~91
This paper investigates the possibilities of protecting game developers under the work-for-hire provision of copyright law. Fundamentally, the work-for-hire clause provides the authorship status to companies, not to game developers. Some argue that the clause is especially appropriate in software industries including game industries because they are new and different from typical types of copyright industries. However, game industries are different from software industries as well as typical types of copyright industries in that they have both cultural (artistic) as well as industrial characteristics. Game developers not being provided with the authorship status may be one of the reasons for the disputes related to turnover and knowledge leakage. This paper mainly suggests three kinds of solutions: first, protecting the moral right even in the work-for-hire provision; second, protecting game developers as coauthorship; and third, providing monetary compensation as it is in employee invention.
Trends and Implications of Global Game Rating Systems
Park, Tae-Soon ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 11, issue 4, 2011, Pages 93~104
This article inspected 16 game rating systems in the world to find out the trends of those. Mainly the perspective of freedom of expression is used to find out the implications of the trends. As the position of game becomes higher, the increase of game specialty rating institutions, the augmentation of self regulations rating institutions, the enlargement of freedom of expression in the area of game are revealed as trends. These trends are in the natural order of events that match with the development of game. We could know that rapid change and innovation is much needed.
An Exploratory Study on the Social Capital and Subjective Well-Being in Social Network Games
Park, Hyun-Ah ; Kim, Hyoung-Il ; Ryu, Seoung-Ho ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 11, issue 4, 2011, Pages 105~116
In this research, we investigated users' social capital and subjective well-being in social network games. We had Focus Group Interview(FGI) and analyzed the interview data. Our finding is that the social capital was either decreasing or slightly increasing only between acquaintances, with the subjective well-being increasing, affected by the users' achievements, continuous caring, and interaction with NPCs, while not affected by the social capital. Our research also found the independent increase of subjective well being, not being affected by the increase of social capital.

Realism Cues and Memory in Computer Games : Effects of Violence Cues on Arousal, Engagement, and Memory
Jeong, Eui-Jun ; Biocca, Frank A. ; Kim, Min-Kyu ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 11, issue 4, 2011, Pages 127~142
This study examined if realistic cues of violence - blood color (red), sound cues (screams of pain), and perspective (first-person) - influence user arousal, feeling of presence, and their memory for the game events and positions with personal experience of games. The relationship between arousal and presence was also analyzed with their effects on memory in a 3D modified shooter game (CounterStrike). Results indicated that both realism cues of violence increased the player's arousal regardless of the user's level of game experience, and the arousal had a significant relationship with engagement by affecting presence strongly. Especially, engagement (a sub-factor of presence) was stronger than other variables in explaining the memory effect, and it mediated the effect between arousal and memory. However, the first-person perspective did not show any significant effect on arousal, and had a negative effect on engagement.
Camera Tracking Method based on Model with Multiple Planes
Lee, In-Pyo ; Nam, Bo-Dam ; Hong, Hyun-Ki ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 11, issue 4, 2011, Pages 143~149
This paper presents a novel camera tracking method based on model with multiple planes. The proposed algorithm detects QR code that is one of the most popular types of two-dimensional barcodes. A 3D model is imported from the detected QR code for augmented reality application. Based on the geometric property of the model, the vertices are detected and tracked using optical flow. A clipping algorithm is applied to identify each plane from model surfaces. The proposed method estimates the homography from coplanar feature correspondences, which is used to obtain the initial camera motion parameters. After deriving a linear equation from many feature points on the model and their 3D information, we employ DLT(Direct Linear Transform) to compute camera information. In the final step, the error of camera poses in every frame are minimized with local Bundle Adjustment algorithm in real-time.
