- ItemMetadata onlyA proposal for cognitive gameplay requirements(IEEE, 2010) Callele, D.; Neufeld, E.; Schneider, K.In cognitive gameplay, players must identify inputs, classify and integrate them in a contextually appropriate manner, then draw conclusions and provide feedback to the game engine to demonstrate their mastery of the challenge. Established requirements practices do not exist for this domain and game development teams rely upon ad hoc approaches to specification and iterative requirements-through-implementation-and-test techniques to achieve their goals. In this work we report our observations of a game development team as they prepared a game design in response to a third-party commercial request for proposal. We report upon three examples of cognitive gameplay definition and propose a definition for cognitive gameplay requirements, capable of capturing the requirements from within the case study, that can be used as the basis for further investigations.
- ItemMetadata onlyVisualizing Emotional Requirements(IEEE, 2009) Callele, D.; Neufeld, E.; Schneider, K.Emotional requirements capture the game designer's vision for the player's emotional experience and are used to facilitate communication between pre-production and production teams. However, production-phase deficiencies in emotional requirements have been identified. In this work, we extend the definition of emotional requirements to include emotion prototypes and emotion markers and present improved techniques for eliciting, capturing and visualizing emotional requirements. A detailed investigation of one gameplay scenario is presented, with a focus on evaluating visualization techniques for emotional requirements. The solutions developed in this work met the needs of all development team members and appear to be general solutions for the domain.
