1. Yee, Edmond C. Combiform: a console for the new communal casual game genre.

Degree: MFA, Interactive Media, 2012, University of Southern California

Combiform is a novel digital gaming console featuring four combinable handheld controllers. It is a new and unique tangible gaming interface that stresses the importance of co-located, co-attentive social interactions among players. In particular, multiple players may freely combine and lock together their handheld game controllers, thereby creating a very flexible collective and transformable tangible interface. Combiform emphasizes social interaction through controller-to-controller contact. The platform and its 10 games introduce novel, tangible and physical co-attentive experiences that are not found in traditional co-located gaming platforms using mimetic interfaces (e.g. Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Kinect). The project is the first game console especially designed for a new emerging digital game genre – Communal Casual Game. The new game genre captures a perspective of integrating classical folk game design approach with digital elements; a perspective that uses old form of rules to create new types of play. Advisors/Committee Members: Kratky, Andreas (Committee Chair), Hoberman, Perry (Committee Member), Valanejad, Kurosh (Committee Member), Clark, Andre (Committee Member), Bolas, Mark T. (Committee Member).
