archive: Wardive: Wireless Gamescapes on the Nintendo DS.
Mobile Games
A new experimental game for the Nintendo DS made by Swiss researchers uses wireless activity to drive the adaptation of game-levels: as your network context changes, the way you play will change. I especially like the menu options for choosing the game-type: sitting on a bus, walking around, taking the train (see above image).

From the site:

"Each time you play, metro wardive captures different data and creates a new level for you. Metro wardiveis an adaptive game with locative levels. It changes according to its real life location as much as to its virtual data world."

Wardive is ready to play on a DS right away. Go to the project page for downloads and more about the project.

Wardive has something of a precedent in the game-art world: be sure to see Jonas Hielscher's excellent piece Collectic for the PlayStation portable: a fine example of using the rich landscape of urban wireless data to drive gameplay on a handheld console.

This has been archived in the Mobile Games section. Wardive came to us via /.

Justin Hall's Passively Multiplayer "is a system for turning user data into ongoing play. Using computer and mobile phone surveillance, a user and their unique history. These resulting avatars can be viewed online, and they interact with other avatars online."

Catch his talk at the Seattle 2006 Mobile Games Conference.

tech: Real-world games with portable, motion-sensor consoles
Mobile Games
Staying on-topic, Wired are covering a new mobile gaming technology from University of Southern California's School of Cinema-Television. Runs on a tablet PC with motion detection and WiFi. You know how people with BlueTooth headsets look like they're conversing with ghosts? Wait until they start seeing giant killer spiders through direct-retina, mobile gaming units.

archive: Scoot
Mobile Games
SCOOT is a mixed reality experience designed to explore the potentials of location-based games which employ the web and mobile devices as tools of play. SCOOT is set in both the physical world and a virtual facsimile of the site. Players are challenged to find and solve clues in BOTH worlds in order to reveal the dynamics of the site, and to progress the game. SCOOT also exploits known tropes from treasure hunt and puzzle games in the real world, supported by online navigation and communication.

Scoot will be on at Acmi Games Lab Saturday 9 April 2005.

Mobile Games Anonymous writes "BACKSEAT PLAYGROUND

John Paul Bichard - Liselott Brunnberg - Oskar Juhlin


So you're sitting in the back seat of a car staring out of the window - imagine that the world moving past you is a vast game engine - the objects, places and people around you are all part of an intertwining series of episodes that make up an ongoing game plot...

...what if you could search the bottom of the riverbed beneath the bridge you just drove over, using an aqualung you picked up from the last village... what if there were dark tales waiting to be uncovered in the forest coming up... what if the person sitting in the back seat of the car in front is the detective searching for you...

archive: Consumer Grade Augmented Reality
Mobile Games

AR is a rarified technology, guarded in the crypts of academic research. While several groups have sought to remove the mantle and put AR on the street, much of the medium is still reliant on those silly goggles and half a CRAY computer in the backpack. The people at headmap seek to change that by making consumer grade glasses, with dependent processing in a jacket or backpack. Still, i'm not convinced this is going far enough. AR guru Ignacio Mondine and I were talking about this a few months ago; throwing around the possibilities for using a mobile phone in camera capture mode as a 'looking glass' for a composited layer of 3D content. Ideally the content would be positioned with GPS, or better, using an existing urban mesh-network within a 'live play' or ubiquitous gaming context. Finally someone's cracked it and the possibilites for Pervasive Gaming this opens up are enormous..
