-===== Space Shooter =====+==== Room of the Ghosts / Jump! / Labyrinth ==== 
 + 
 +Three affective games designed with the emphasis on differentiating the levels of difficulty. The games focus on a limited number of mechanics to evoke a limited set of emotions, which should make it easier to analyze game logs and draw conclusions. 
 + 
 +| **Room of the Ghosts** \\ \\ //The goal:// pass through a series of rooms and defeat the arriving ghosts. \\ //Difficulty:// very easy, achieved by the following implementations: collider for protagonist is smaller than his real model - it removes the feeling of being hit before the projectile hits the player; the protagonist's weapon that can shoot more often and faster than the opponents' weapons. | {{ :pub:room-of-the-ghosts.png?direct |}} | 
 +| **Jump!** \\ \\ //The goal:// reach the end of the path by jumping on the platforms and avoiding obstacles. \\ //Difficulty:// hard and frustrating, achieved by the following implementations: colliders are too big - player can get hit by trap before s/he touches it with the model; movement is clunky, and there are several traps, i.e. invisible blocks, which increases the confusion and irritation in player; each time the protagonist dies, the background music is getting less pleasant (the pitch and distort levels of music playing in background increases by 0.07). | {{ :pub:jump.png?direct |}} | 
 +| **Labyrinth** \\ \\ //The goal:// walk the protagonist through the labyrinth. \\ //Difficulty:// optimal, achieved by the following implementations: the colliders have been adjusted to not hit the walls too often and to make the movement smooth; the protagonist control is natural and predictable. | {{ :pub:labyrinth.png?direct |}} |

 +==== Space Shooter ====
  
 Space Shooter is a modified version of the arcade style shooter, created on the basis of the Unity guide. Main goal of the game is to steer a spaceship and destroy incoming asteroids. The player receives points for destroying an asteroid before it reaches the bottom of the screen. Space Shooter is a modified version of the arcade style shooter, created on the basis of the Unity guide.

 The user can shoot by clenching his fist. The speed of asteroids is manipulated based on heart rate, while the brightness of the background changes according to the calculated emotional index.  The user can shoot by clenching his fist.

 Heart rate computed during calibration phase is the default value, with which the readings are compared during the game, so as to modify the speed of asteroids. In the case of EMG calibration, readings are used later as a threshold value, above which the game mechanism will read the movement of the hand as a shot. Heart rate computed during calibration phase is the default value, with which the readings are compared during the game, so as to modify the speed of asteroids.

 The name of the game is related to storyline elements that refer to the concept of Sigmund Freud's psychoanalysis. The player is drawn into an unconventional therapy, in which he must face opponents lurking inside his consciousness, preconsciousness and unconsciousness. The name of the game is related to storyline elements that refer to the concept of Sigmund Freud's psychoanalysis.

 Throughout the entire game, the player is kept in contact with a psychotherapist who helps him and clarifies how the system works. For example, when the player is very frustrated or very angry, enemies adjust their speed to those emotions and proper information is provided. The guidance is a key point in explainability of affective loop implemented in our application, as well as in keeping the player interested. Throughout the entire game, the player is kept in contact with a psychotherapist who helps him and clarifies how the system works.

 The speed of opponents' movement is adjusted depending on the heart rate. What is more, randomness of spawning points is modified based on heart rate and electrodermal activity combination. The speed of opponents' movement is adjusted depending on the heart rate.

-===== Publications =====+==== London Bridge ==== 
 + 
 +**London Bridge** is a side-scroller platformer game, designed and developed for research purposes. {{ :pub:lb.png?direct&400|}} 
 + 
 +The game was created using Game Maker Studio v 1.4 (see [[https://www.yoyogames.com/gamemaker|developer's webpage]]).  
 + 
 +In **London Bridge**, the player controls an English Gentleman, who traverses the London Bridge, as it's falling down (referring to old nursery rhyme //"London Bridge is falling down"// ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VIGQCbAgL0|example interpretation of the song]]).  
 +The game goal is to collect purple Diamonds within specified time limit, while avoiding being hit by burning bricks that fall down on the player, and crows that fly towards him from the right side of the screen. Picking up a Diamond grants 5 points. Bricks subtract 5 points from the player's score, Crows steal 5 seconds from the remaining time. Bricks and Crows spawn randomly. Also, the player can (and should) collect the Clocks to boost his remaining time by 5 seconds.  
 +As in the case of old side-scrolling games (like Super Mario series, etc.), the player can progress only by walking to the right - as the game screen progresses with the player, the passed route on the left becomes unavailable (the Bridge has already collapsed there).  
 + 
 +The information on player's score and remaining time is indirect - the score is represented by a descriptive label (ranging from "Awful" to "Fantastic"), and the passing time is depicted as a gradually diminishing piechart.  
 + 
 +What is more, when half of the designated time has passed, the player is informed about that with a warning notification that appears in the center of the screen.
