Abstract

We propose a game design approach that utilizes facial expressions as an input method under different emotional feedback configurations. A study was conducted in a shopping centre to assess our game "EmoFlowers" focusing on user experience and user effectiveness. The study revealed that interaction with a game via facial expression is perceived naturally, is easy to learn, and provides a positive user experience.
