  • A Serious Game helps the learners to recognize the problems effectively, grasp and classify important information needed to solve the problems and convey the contents of what they have learned. Owing not only to this game-like fun but also to the educational effect, The Serious Game can be usefully applied to education and training in the areas of scientific technology and industrial technology. This study proposes the Serious Game that users can apply to biotechnology by using intuitive multi-modal interfaces. In this study, a stereoscopic monitor is used to make three dimensional molecular structures, and multi-modal interface is used to efficiently control. Based on a such system, this study easily solved the docking simulation function, which is one of the important experiments, by applying these game factors. For this, we suggested the level-up concept as a game factor that depends on numbers of objects and users. The proposed system was evaluated in performance comparison in result time of a new drug design process on AIDS virus with previous approach.

  • With the development of tangible interface in recent years, the interest in interactive exercise games to improve health-related physical fitness has been increased. We believe that this kind of serious game should provide not only motion sensing of the action required to play sports but also a specific effectiveness of exercise. This paper will show how a serious exercise game affects theirs heart rate and preference. For the experiments, we used an exercise game named GalaxyBike for aerobics exercise which is developed by the Interaction Media Research Center of Hoseo University. In the experiments, players' heart rate was measured during the warming-up, exercise and cooling-down periods by a wireless heart-rate measuring instrument. After they played the exercise game, a survey was conducted to see how they like this serious exercise game. The findings of the study suggest that the serious exercise game providing both video game and exercise would make a contribution to the improvement of health-related physical fitness since it serves to increase the heart rate and motivation.

  • In this paper, we implemented a serious game system for study to accompany exercising and generating to keep on computer game side effect. The implemented serious game system was divided into the game part and the athletic part. The athletic part for whole body exercising was composed of health bicycle for lower body exercise and additional apparatus for upper body exercise, that was attached to the rear side of health bicycle and several generator was attached to the power point of athletic part. The circuit board and logic program was composed to adjust the exercise strength control, to get data and to communicate with the computer. The game part was composed to promote and educational effectiveness, the whole system emphasized on amusement side while avoided violence side. We confirmed the effect of the serious game system with the fourteen fun form which Garneau insists.

  • While there is consensus on the educational potential of serious games, there is still a lack of methodology and tools to support analysis and evaluation as well as design. This paper intends to explore the new methodology or design direction by analyzing pedagogy-related research required for serious games. To do this, we analyzed 4DF(Four Dimensional Framework), GOM(Game Object Model), LM(Learning Mechanics)-GM(Game Mechanics) and a framework for teacher. One of the biggest issues faced by educational games is the inadequate integration of education and game principles. This is due to a variety of factors, including the fact that game designers and educational professionals do not share a common vocabulary or work domain perspective.

  • This paper deals with the elderly serious game design which makes full use of the existing arcade game machine. This serious game is on the issue for its positive role recently. Serious arcade game for the elderly which is made up arcade platform-based combined contents manufacture technology has an element which is having a fun for building up physical and mental health. It also has a special objective which can prevent against senile dementia. Above-mentioned serious arcade game which has a special objective in both hardware part and software part is needed to study how to design. Accordingly, this paper presents how to make up special-purpose entertainment machine and contents development by biologic, social, and psychological researches and data about the elderly - main users. We hope that this paper can be used as a base for expansion of new industrial field by integrating new product development for the elderly with high game technology.With the help of information technology

  • In this paper we propose a serious game for experience of music performance, which allows users to readily enjoy musical playing, even if the player has little or no experience in playing musical instruments. This game makes it easier for users to correctly perform given melodies along with standard performance, using a score-adjusting algorithm that can cope with the particular errors commonly made by beginners. This music performance is achieved by the agent to interpret the gestural sign of the user. We understands the interaction of the user and the agent as a communication model from the Peircean Semiotic perspectives.

  • Therapeutic serious game treats mental health problems such as depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, and behavioral disorder by allowing clients to manage and express feelings. These games are developed according to a primary principle of the cognitive behavior therapy that the mental health can be improved by training cognition and behavior with proper stimulation. For those who have difficulties in expressing emotions, stepwise treatment is offered to create a safe emotional environment which induces them to express themselves. The game environment provides affective feelings that encompass physical experiences. In addition, emotional distance is formed between the user and the game environment, and thus even those who have high psychological barriers feel free to express and release their feelings. Game users can experience self-exposure and awareness and gradually construct their self-images, expressing themselves in the virtual world in a continuous and repetitive fashion.

  • Serious games are purposive game. So game-developers want to achieve the desired purposes, and game-users also want to play to achieve the goals of playing games. The function of achievement-assessing is an important area of serious game. In this study, achievement-assessing style was defined as three types, that is, 'all-in-one', 'complex', and 'separation'. Accordingly, we analyzed which type of serious games use which type of achievement-assessing style. As a result, the survey shows that those who want to play game itself preferred 'all-in-one' above all, and those who want to stick to the purpose of game preferred 'separation' or 'complex'. In addition, the investigation of preference of achievement-assessing function shows that users, as a whole, preferred 'all-in-one'. We hope this study will be useful data to design of achievement-assessing function which achieve the purpose of game and provide users with higher satisfaction.

  • This paper aims to propose a cognitive evaluation model to be utilized in designing game devices and developing relevant software with the purpose of the prevention of dementia of the elderly among various types of serious games for the elderly intending to improve their physical, mental or social capability. Firstly, a serious game for the elderly has been developed based on the guidelines of the areas pertaining to existing hardware, software and contents. Secondly, a pre-experiment of the game targeting specialists has been conducted in order to re-establish a cognitive evaluation model for the developed result. Thirdly, the cognitive evaluation model for the serious game for the elderly that intends to improve their cognitive capacity has been materialized based on the experiment results. Given the fact that the scope of game contents, most of which used to be focused on teenagers, have been gradually expanding to cover wider range of social classes than ever before, it is expected that the results of this study could be utilized as a model that can verify the games and their contents with special purposes based on the cognitive evaluation of the users.
