  • The purpose of this study is to apply fashion design to developing dress design of mobile-phone game characters. As for the research methodology, first, market research has been carried out to extract main images from dress designs of game characters and to understand their socio-cultural meanings. Second, the fashion design, which ran be compared to the extracted images of game characters were selected. Third, analyses were done to find out the gap between the game character's dress designs and the fashion designs. The main images of game characters are revealed as erotic, romantic, heroic, grotesque. These images have been formed by psychological and socio-cultural effects such as stimulation, empathy, compensation, increase of female game player. The differences between the game character's dresses and the fashion designs are as follows; With regard to style, game dresses have silhouette distinguished from background, but fashion collection have blurred silhouette. In the aspect of color, while strong colors are mainly used in game dress, neutral rotors are preferred in fashion collection. As for texture, the expression of 'textures in game character's dress is so far limited due to the insufficient level of the concerned technology. However, the fashion design applying drape of fabrics are well-developed. Mobile-phone game players want reality in game design. Therefore, the effort to overcome the gaps between game dress and fashion design can contribute to the growth of game character design.

  • In the domestic game development field, game system planning is the work that game designers design the gameplay mechanics system to satisfy the game concepts in the perspective of creative design by data structural methods. But the programmers work to design the game system based on the results of the game system planning in the perspective of engineering design by object-oriented methods. This work process is a high risky way for high occurring probability of communication errors between the game designers and programmers, and mismatching errors in their work results. In this study, we propose an object-oriented design method of game system for the game designers in order to resolve this problem. The proposed method is a customized one of GRAPPLE object-oriented SW development guidelines to suit the game system planning. To investigate the effectiveness of the proposed planning method for the game designers, we carried out a survey targeting 10 game system designers working in the domestic game industry. The survey results show that the necessity and effectiveness of the proposed method is "a little over" for almost the game designers.

  • Computer games need game formulas which express game rules by mathematical functions because the game rules are automatically processed by computers. The game formulas are usually multi-variable functions. So the design of a game formula is a complex and difficult problem because it is the same problem of the design of a multi-variable function which should satisfy the related game rules. In this paper we propose a new method which can systematically design game formulas. The purposed method is the decomposing of tree structure for a game formula by analyzing the tree structure of the operands which have single-variable functions on the lowest levels. So the design method can change the complex and difficult problem of the design of a multi-variable function to the simple and easy problem of the design of the single-variable function which should satisfy the related game rules.

  • In recent years, Sandbox Games have become more and more popular in players, and The Elder Scrolls 5 Skyrim is the magnum opus of this type of game. However, the element of this game's attraction for players, which is why the game is fun to play is worth exploring in the territory of Game Design. In this paper, I will introduce the game The Elder Scrolls 5 Skyrim in detail, listing some of the game's storyline 、 Game Mechanics and analyze them. Researching the advantage and disadvantage viewed from the angle of Game Interactive Design. Finally by analyzing a large number of interactive storytelling cases in the game and the game experience brought to players, I get some universal principles in the game interactive storytelling design level. The research transforms the players' subjective intuition factor into a clear interactive storytelling design pattern, which aims to provide qualitative design criteria and framework for game interactive storytelling design. Then find a universal technique of Game Interactive Design, that is how to design a game interaction system for a sandbox game that will make the game attractive to players. And this may provide some guiding significance for the later Game Interactive Designing.

  • This study was to design a game in which physical space and virtual space are mixed, and examine whether the game players could recognize the location and the building information encountered through game play. To do this, after creating a game with a mixture of physical space and virtual space, we conducted two experiments with college students. As a result, we found that players learned the spatial location and building information by playing the game made for this study, and found that the exchange and interaction between players' acts as part of the game were able to change game play itself.

  • Game level design is one of the important parts in the commercial game development. Because of its complexity in combining game components, game design work could be classified into a non-linear problem. In this paper, we propose a new automated game level design system by using genetic algorithms. With our system, a game designer easily generates an optimized game level by designating the key parameters m the initial stage of game design. Our system can be useful in reducing the trial-errors in the initial game level design process.

  • Most of the games developed or marketed in the Chinese game market are developed and serviced in foreign countries or are produced in Korea (China) and marketed as services of foreign game companies. If China wants to become the world's game development powerhouse, I think that professional education in multiple methods is the top priority. In particular, I think that a specialized game design department is necessary at a university in China. In this paper, we investigate the game design departments of universities in the United States and the game development powers in South Korea and the Korean game development powers to analyze the educational system of the game design department. Through comparative analysis, a Chinese university finds the necessary elements when establishing a new game design department, and trains advanced game developers in the game field at the Chinese Department of Digital Media Arts. If this study is helpful to the game education in China, it will be studied in the future for the master's program and the doctoral program.

  • The progress of the game engine make us easier to develop a game product and it is possible for one man to make a game. This means that if you have ideas about game, you can make a game as you thought only if you know how to design a game. Because the game designing is not the field that may not be used like tools and could not buy like graphical data. This study, based on the practice, presented to the understanding and guidance for people who want to know about game designing such as no experienced person and starting new game design. These contributions are supported by a detailed exploration of common understandings of game design methods so that I expect to help designing or managing the project.

  • The trend in the domestic MMORPG online game market is on decline because of the change in customers attitude and the advent of mobile or foreign games. The underlying cause of depressed domestic game market is that it has been failing to provide quality service arising from not revising existing game design. For this reason, this paper sets out to gather game users' opinions and to analyze successful domestic and foreign games comparatively to approve the importance and necessity of scenario development and to solve current problems in the MMORPG market. As one solution, this paper proposes a new design method, TIME FLOW scenario technique. This technique aims to establish a system in which story and environment change as time progresses and thus can provide different contents to its users over time. It is expected to enable a new frame for game design environment and to restructure education environment for human resource cultivation.
