Now no longer cutting edge of course, but with a lot of case studies from the pre-2010 era and some great examinations of treasure hunts, assassination games and other pervasive games from the pre-smartphone era

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0123748534, Paperback)

Quickly emerging from the fast-paced growth of mobile communications and wireless technologies, pervasive games take gaming away from the computer screen and back to the three-dimensional world. Now games can be designed to be played in public spaces like shopping malls, conferences, museums and other non-traditional game venues. Game designers need to understand how to use the world as a gamespace-and both the challenges and advantages of doing so.

This book shows how to change the face of play-who plays, when and where they play and what that play means to all involved. The authors explore aspects of pervasive games that concern game designers: what makes these games compelling, what makes them possible today and how they are made. For game researchers, it provides a solid theoretical, philosophical and aesthetic understanding of the genre.

Pervasive Games covers everything from theory and design to history and marketing.

designers, so that they can learn how to engage players' real-time experiences beyond the mobile phone or computer screen.

-Thirteen case studies with illustrative and inspiring examples make the entire pervasive games design space tangible.

-Provides practical design tips, potential pitfalls, design problems from real games, and inspiration from some of the most interesting pervasive game designers in the world, including Matt Adams, Frank Lantz, and others.
