Abstract

This research examines the feasibility of rule customization for a genre of pervasive games for children called Head-Up Games [11], which are intended to be played outdoors by children and to encourage physical activity and social interaction. An interface to allow customization of game rules was created. An evaluation involving 22 children aged 11--13, showed that children are able to customize the game and this can be an effective means of keeping them engaged with such games for longer periods.
