In 2011, I presented my MSc Dissertation at the multi.player Conference in Hohenheim, Germany. I’m very happy to share that the book based on that conference is now available for pre-order, which includes a chapter on the research written by myself, Pejman Mirza-Babaei, Graham McAllister and Jon Napier.
With the catchy title “Playing to Win? Measuring the Correlation Between Biometric Responses and Social Interaction in Co-Located Social Gaming”, the chapter combines my research on social interaction in multiplayer collocated gaming, with Pejman’s work on using biometrics to guide interviews, and draws new conclusions about how different aspects of social games effect different player types. This research has previously been featured on gamasutra, edge and at Develop Liverpool.
The book, called Multiplayer: The Social Aspects of Digital Gaming, is available on amazon, and will be released October 29th.
