Chu-Ta in Wonder Cave
Hiroyuki Nakamoto
Project Chu-Ta
〔Japan〕 Chu-Ta in Wonder Cave
【Gaming Concept and Outline】
We developed an interface in the form of a soft stuffed animal. It is possible to measure pressure with its internal sensor. By wrapping the sensor in a rubbery material, a soft feeling was created. We developed “Chuta and Mysterious Cave” that use that soft feeling. Players take on the role of the mouse named Chuta, who has been asked to bring an old man to a village. They operate the interface, run through the mysterious cave, and avoid obstacles while bringing the old man to the mouse’s village.

〔Australia〕 Framed
【Gaming Concept and Outline】
Framed' is a narrative-puzzle game, presented as an animated graphic novel. As each scene in the story unfolds, players can rearrange the panels on each page, changing the outcome of the narrative. This results in a unique interactive narrative where each action is framed by the last, and the player's imagination carries the story between each panel.
Kenta Hamaguchi & OECU Takami-Lab
〔Japan〕 Kapolachica-san
【Gaming Concept and Outline】
This is an attempt to integrate musical performances with a game. Our intention is to express the enjoyment of playing various musical instruments, the happiness of producing sounds, the pleasure of playing in ensembles, and the delight of becoming proficient. The musical scales of the various sounds produced by musical instruments are detected in real time, chords are also detected, and those results are used to control the game screen. Essentially, musical instruments for performing songs serve as the game controller, and the game screen flows along enjoyably and pleasantly like a song.

Sdivace Qube

Qubit Games
〔Taiwan〕 Sdivace Qube
【Gaming Concept and Outline】
Space Qube is a voxel based retro shooting game with an in-game editor which allows the players to create anything they can image and use it to play game. The players can also share the creations via various social networking platforms and 3D print out their creations with just one tap. In Space Qube, every player can create their own unique space ship to play the game and every player created spaceship wouldn't be the same. The player created space ship is not only different on appearance but also on attributes. The less voxels the players use to build the space ship, the faster but weaker the space ship will be and vice versa. So every player can build the space ship which is best fit to the player. 3D printing is another amazing feature of Space Qube, the players can send their creation to print out without exiting the game and the printed model will deliver to the players directly.
