Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road? – Virtual Reality Game (THESIS RESEARCH)
George Mason University
• Researched numerous PC, mobile, and VR games to design and develop a VR game that is addictive and fun to play.
• Implemented procedural-level design and game development techniques like 3D noise, environmental triggers, and motion sensing to create a well-rounded, and functional game.
• Recorded human motion, medical wristband (E4) data, gameplay progress data, and user ratings to train a machine learning algorithm.
• Proposed a system that uses trained data to generate and accurately predict the difficulty of levels and use MCMC optimization to manipulate parameters tailored to the intended user experience.
Note: This work is still being expanded on. My thesis presents the progress of my work at 12/2022. Thus, the noted progress is more than what is presented in my thesis.
