  • Game industry demands for talented workers from game scenario writing, graphic design and computer game programming areas, which are the three heterogeneous parts of computer game making. This paper deals with the analysis on the college convergence education, surveying the curriculums of game departments in Korean universities and with how to proceed for game programmers to the direction of convergence education for computer game making. Most of the game departments are focusing on game programming area, whereas only 2 departments among 14 surveyed are teaching the game graphic design topics. Observing the curriculum changes for sampled game departments reveals that around 30% of the majoring classes are directly game related. Game programmers are to be advised to fulfill their programming skill first and later expand their ability to game graphic design skill.

  • This paper focuses on the sequences between game performance, game experience, game generation. Present-day the game has powerful effects to form new human species as game generation. Especially, the experience game is important because it could have one of the most powerful effect by characteristics of own interface. First of all, this paper analyzes a experience of the experience game and researches the game-extended space. Secondly, We create concept of 'new game generation' in order to explain new human species on the experience game. So we can reveal the social meaning of accelerated present state by the experience game through this new analysis.

  • Game software planning is divided into initial game software planning and detailed game software planning. Technique, design, marketing should be considered in initial game software planning. Especially, technical considerations, platform and game engine and sewer construction and sewer architecture should have effect on development cost and time. So, game software designer should choose technical consideration which is suitable for purpose of game software planning. In this paper, we researched technical considerations in initial game software planning, focusing on platform, game engine, game service, network infrastructure.

  • Game play is a procedure of playing the game following the results of choices existing in the game. Such games are generally implemented not by certain rules and techniques like other designs but by abilities and experiences of game designers. In this paper we propose a design method of game play through possibility reasoning and distributions using elements of cognitive psychology which are 'a theory about problem solving' and 'a theory about reasoning and decision'. These two theories are very closely related to game play which has the procedure of solving problem of continuous choices and their results.

  • This study was to design a game in which physical space and virtual space are mixed, and examine whether the game players could recognize the location and the building information encountered through game play. To do this, after creating a game with a mixture of physical space and virtual space, we conducted two experiments with college students. As a result, we found that players learned the spatial location and building information by playing the game made for this study, and found that the exchange and interaction between players' acts as part of the game were able to change game play itself.

  • Purpose: The measure the degree of computer game addiction; to examine the relationship between computer game addiction and contributing factors; and to discover the predictors of computer game addiction of elementary school children of Korea. Method: Data were assembled from questionnaires distributed among 455 children from four elementary schools in Gyung-buk Province. Result: The level of computer game addiction of subjects was rather low, and correlated significantly with gender, academic performance, family economic status, playmates for leisure time, place of playing computer game, length of the habit of playing game, average playing time of game per day, frequency of PC-room(Internet Cafe for game) visits per week, game partners and reasons for playing game. Multiple regression analysis showed that 45% of the computer game addiction was significantly related to gender(21%), impulsiveness(10%), average playing time of game per day(9%), depression(2%) and other variables(3%) such as playmates for leisure time, academic performance and frequency of PC-room visits per week. Conclusion: We suggest these results be used to develop a computer game addiction prevention program.

  • Game balance settings are crucial to game design. Game balancing must take into account a large amount of numerical values, configuration data, and the relationship between elements. Once released and served, a game - even for a balanced game - often requires calibration according to the game player's preference. To achieve sustainability, game balance needs adjustment while allowing for small changes. In fact, from the producers' standpoint, game balance issue is a critical success factor in game production. Therefore, they often invest much time and capital in game design. However, if such a costly game cannot provide players with an appropriate level of difficulty, the game is more likely to fail. On the contrary, if the game successfully identifies the game players' propensity and performs self-balancing to provide appropriate difficulty levels, this will significantly reduce the likelihood of game failure, while at the same time increasing the lifecycle of the game. Accordingly, if a novel technology for game balancing is developed using artificial intelligence (AI) that offers personalized, intelligent, and customized service to individual game players, it would bring significant changes to the game production system.
