"Fancy a Schmink?" : a novel networked game in a cafe

Reid, Josephine; Lipson, Mathew; Hyams, Jenny; Shaw, Kate


Keyword(s): mobile games; wireless games; handheld devices; entertainment

Abstract: In this paper we describe a week long public field trial called Schminky. Based on our findings from the trial we consider the design implications for spontaneous, networked sound-based games. The venue for the trial was a cafe in a digital media centre. The paper reflects on the role of place and the notion of embedded histories. Notes: Mathew Lipson, The Appliance Studio, University Gate, Park Row, Bristol, BS1 5UB, UK
