Abstract

This research investigates and identifies the factors that influence positive user engagement while interacting with games interfaces. In this paper we provide a finding on our experiences with two case studies; 1) A study on the variation of flow experience in different gaming devices (mobile and non-mobile) using Time Tunnel game; and 2)A study of the user engagement by measuring the user experience while interacting with the game interface using The Sims 3 game. From the results, we identify some issues arising from using different platforms such as flow experience on difference game devices, and different user experience and user engagement on game interface. These findings on games interfaces and user engagement offer many avenues for further research, such as manipulating the levels of user engagement through appropriate gaming interface design.
