Cipher cities : effective user interface design for building a digital social network around location-based gaming
Polson, Debra, Huang, Sherwin, & Morgan, Colleen (2007) Cipher cities : effective user interface design for building a digital social network around location-based gaming. In Mobility conference 2007 : the 4th International Conference on Mobile Technology, Applications, and Systems, Mobility 2007, September 10-12, 2007, Singapore Polytechnic, Singapore.
In this paper we explore what is required of a User Interface (UI) design in order to encourage participation around playing and creating Location-Based Games (LBGs). To base our research in practice, we present Cipher Cities, a web based system. Through the design of this system, we investigate how UI design can provide tools for complex content creation to compliment and encourage the use of mobile phones for designing, distributing, and playing LBGs. Furthermore we discuss how UI design can promote and support socialisation around LBGs through the design of functional interface components and services such as groups, user profiles, and player status listings.
