Abstract

This paper provides insights on promoting social interaction between the players in a multiplayer game. We present two case studies that investigated multiplayer games with different kind of user interfaces. The first case study concentrated on movement control of the players during a game in an intelligent environment with a shared display. The latter examined the usage of a shared display in a multiplayer mobile game controlled with mobile phones. In the light of the results of these two case studies we discuss different factors that need to be taken into account when designing multiplayer games with the emphasis on social interaction.
