Tim Dutz will organize a premier of KOMarcade at the Team Challenge on April, the 5th in Darmstadt. KOMarcade has developed from a Urban Health Games student project PacStudent in spring 2013. It allows players to create their own play fields and levels in Darmstadt.

Join our three groups presenting their prototypes and analysis for the spring term 2014.
What’s the most relaxing Smartphone Game? A group of students from our interdisciplinary seminar on Urban Health Games wanted to know and tested stress levels while playing at Frankfurt Ost.
Participants will develop a context-sensitive game for the city of Frankfurt am Main, which deals with navigating urban space. Students will choreograph a perfect run between two public transport stations and design a game in which players will navigate by interacting with a smartphone, physically moving in the real world and controlling heartrate and stress levels. The seminar introduces to basics in game design and will discuss Active Design and Inclusive Street Design guidelines at hand in the real world locations. Together with students from psychology, architecture and computer science, participants will develop prototypes and test the game on site.

This Seminar deals with the effects of the built environment on healthy behaviors including walking, running or stair climbing. In spring 2013, students will form small project teams to develop exergames for their lunchtime breaks. Which environments can be used to play exergames on smartphones? And which effects on motivation, activation and wellbeing can be shown?
