  • The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of the Internet channel introduction on the channel composed of a monopoly manufacturer and an independent physical retailer. This study also examines what would be the best strategy for the Independent physical retailer to respond to the new internet channel entry. The game theoretic model consists of a monopolist manufacturer selling its product through a channel system including one independent physical store before the entry of an internet store. The audition of the internet store to this channel system results in a mixed channel comprised of two different types of channels. The new internet store is launched by the manufacturer. The results show that an Internet channel entry has the following impacts on the existing channel members. First, the manufacturer's internet channel introduction mitigates the double marginalization problem of the traditional channel. Second, the manufacturer could enhance Its channel power by introducing its own internet channel while it diminishes that of the incumbent independent physical retailer. Third, manufacturer's adding a new internet store leads to a higher demand. Finally, with its own internet direct channel, the manufacturer has an opportunity to practice price discrimination. The manufacture leaves only those with a strong preference for the physical store to be served by the Independent physical store. The results suggest that the independent physical store's best strategy to the entry of the manufacturer's Internet channel is to focus on the consumers who are highly loyal to the physical store while maintaining a high retail price.

  • Recently, HTML5 have drawn many people's attention since it is considered as a next-generation web standard and can implement a lot of graphic and multimedia-related techniques on a web browser without installing programs separately. In this paper, we implement a game independent of platforms, such as iOS and Android, using the HTML5 canvas. In the game, the main character can move up, down, left, and right not to collide with neighboring enemies. If the character collides with an enemy, the HP (hit point) gauge bar reduces. On the other hand, if the character obtains heart items, the gauge bar increases. In the future, we will add various items to the game and will diversify its user interfaces by applying computer vision techniques such as various gesture recognition.

  • The load of this kind of gores, which is heavier than that of any other precedent, and on enormous seamless virtual world characterize the MMORPG(Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) genres. In this seamless environment, gamers can usually accept a set of independent spaces, which is being held by independent game servers, os a single big virtual world. Despite the efforts of some developers, gamers are suffered from huge message traffic which comes from the interaction between client and server and the interaction between fold sowers. In this paper, new gore server architecture using MigAgent is proposed which tries to reduce message traffic. Usually, message traffic reaches the climax when a PC(Player Character) is moving to other field server. MigAgent, designed in this thesis, tries to manage this kind of PCs and to ploy o role of user's agent to prepare for the unexpected situation. Improvement of this system is shown by the analysis of the effect of the size ratio of AOI (Area of Interest) and AC (Adjacent Cell).

  • With the development of the game industry, 'games about games,' which examine the identity of game itself through a form of the game, emerged with a variety of shapes. Thus, this paper aims to suggest a definition, characteristics, and meaning of 'meta game.' Firstly, meta games strengthen the artificiality of the games and suggest procedurality through a form of the game play. Meta games also utilize the external context as a part of the games, and use the metaphor of 'labyrinth' to identify a feature of the game space. Furthermore, they emphasize intertextuality and prove that the fantasy and the reality can merge within the game world. In conclusion, meta games prove themselves to be independent expressional arts and experimental content, and suggest the potential for an alternative medium beyond formality.

  • In this study, the hardcore game user verified the manipulation delay that occurred during VR game play because of the experienced game. Based on the HCI - based research approach, we created a 2D, 3D, and VR prototype game with user manipulation cycle hypothesis. Based on this, 121 users were experimented with 2D, 3D, VR format user interface. The average user manipulation period extracted by the experiment was compared with the independent sample T test. Based on the test results give the average time difference between the user's operation of the 2D VR format has been verified. User operation period of the average time difference in 3D VR format proved the null hypothesis of no significant difference has been adopted.

  • Lately the VR (Virtual Reality) game genre is becoming increasingly more popular and it has been cementing its place in the market as its own independent game genre. The key advantage of VR is that it lowers the barrier between player and the virtual world, thus creating an immersive experience. The suggested method develops a game that allows the player to experience what it is like to be visually impaired using the unique characteristics of VR. A distinctive feature of this game is that the character is provided only a limited range of sight, which is created using silhouette outlines. This restrictive visual field is then grafted onto VR and the player can indirectly experience blindness in a highly immersive manner. The silhouette outline along with the particle system is created using Oculus Rift, a headset highly used in VR game development, and Unity 3D game engine. We will also explain in detail regarding the removal of borders between the objects.

  • Mobile games have become one of the most important driving forces of the game industry. We focus on the continuous intention to use Chinese mobile games from the perspective of experiential marketing and network externalities. We integrate user experience, network externalities and flow theory into expectation confirmation model and explore the influencing factors of continuous usage intention of Chinese mobile game and propose a research model. Game experience, service experience, perceived enjoyment, social interaction, challenge, perceived number of users and perceived number of peers were employed as independent variables, while flow, perceived value and satisfaction as mediating variables and continuous intention as the dependent variable. After surveying 426 samples, the model is tested with structural equation model. The results reveal that perceived enjoyment significantly positively influences perceived value, flow, satisfaction, and continuous intention. The greater the enjoyment of the game, the greater the satisfaction of the game and the greater the willingness to use it continuously. Game experience has a significant direct effect on continuous intention, which indicates that a better game experience can retain more users. Service experience and perceive number of peers positively influence satisfaction. Another finding is that social interaction and perceived number of users positively influence perceived value and flow, which indicate that social attributes are critical roles for retaining users. Game challenge also positively influences flow. The proper level of challenge is more likely to cause users to enter the state of flow. Flow indirectly influences continuous usage intention through the satisfaction of the game, which indicates that satisfaction is driven by flow experience and further retaining users. Empirical results implied that mobile game companies need to focus on improving user experience, expectation satisfaction and extending network externalities to improve the continuous intention of using mobile game.
