Pervasive games take computer games off the screen and out into the real world. They include mobile games, street games and Alternate Reality Games such as Botfighters, Can You See Me Now? and Perplexcity.
Leading figures in the worlds of Pervasive Games are coming to Brighton from across Europe for this evening about the genre.
Speakers from Nokia in Finland and Sony in Germany will join scientists and theorists to profile new games and discuss the ethics, practicalities and business models raised by these new forms of play.
New games will be demonstrated and will be available to play.
Markus Montola (researcher in Pervasive Games in Gamelab),
Mathieu Verbeeck (Business Development at Sony),
Jussi Holopainen (Head of Game Design Group at Nokia),
Professor Steve Benford (Mixed Reality Lab).
