As part of my diploma thesis under Tico Ballagas, I investigated the evaluation of pervasive games. The motivation for the thesis was the REXplorer game.
We started with conducting several user tests in the field and in the laboratory to analyze the effectiveness and appropriateness of traditional human computer interaction methods to evaluate design, interactions, and user experience in that context.
But evaluation in the field is not always appropriate. Therefore afterwards i simulate the experience of playing in a city while being in a laboratory. This includes
developing a game simulator for REXplorer.
