From University of Illinois MS graduate candidate Arthur Nishimoto comes a demo of an interactive strategy game developed at the Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL). “Fleet Commander” explores how a real-time interactive strategy game that would typically rely on complex keyboard commands and mouse interactions be transferred into a multi-user, multi-touch environment. (How would you like this video game to come into your living room? Sci-fi war games are upon us.)
Originally designed for use with TacTile, a 52-inch multi-touch LCD tabletop display, “Fleet Commander” game play has been ported to EVL’s 20-foot wide multi-touch LCD wall, Cyber-Commons.
