Porting casual games to gesture-control
“Initially, we were unsure how well Luxor would port to the gesturecontrolled world. When we first saw it, we were surprised how well
the gesture controls work; Luxor with gesture-control on SmartTV
introduces an innovative user-experience that is better than
traditional motion-controlled gaming consoles”.

Beyond the Ux -- Gesture-control Potential –
Examples
 Understanding the player in a totally different level
• His whereabouts, his tone, his face, his dressing, his
behavior etc.
 Providing the machine “senses” and enabling a new
kind of machine learning capabilities
 More use of the actual playing environment
 Living room, furniture, real objects in our world

Gesture-control Game Design –
Lesson Learnt, Basic Guidelines
Gesture is a new
language
Plan ahead
Use real life gestures
 No control standards have
emerged yet
 Humanize, simplify,
predict player behavior
 What’s fun while playing
with a joystick isn’t always
fun with your body!
 Focus on the fun gesture
enables: empower the
player -- faster, stronger
 Every movement that does
not directly mimic a real
life one, means teaching
the player a new set of
skills…
Compensate for no
physical feedback
Be aware of Gesture
Limitations
Experiment
 Visual and sound
feedback need to be clear
and “exaggerated”
 “Multitasking” is very hard
(e.g., walking, looking
around and shooting in
parallel)
 Actions need to be
automated
© 2012 appside, all rights reserved
 Your assumptions of what
will work when designing
controls and levels for
gesture, will sometimes be
wrong… 
 What you think should be
easy/fun, turns out to be
hard for players
Summary
 SmartTVs are going mass market. So is the gesture-controlled living room
 a reality already in 2012
 Market potential is significant
 A unique opportunity to become an early leader in an untapped market
 Port/adapt your games to gesture-control
 Developing/porting to gesture-control is easy but requires planning ahead, using
lessons learnt and basic guidelines
 To ensure a successful game which is both compelling and fun, we offer
 Toolbox - Use cases, Success stories, technical/UI/Ux guidelines, best practices etc.
 Porting partners - experienced studios who can port your games and you can
leverage their own experience, knowledge etc.
