Multiplayer casual gaming for IPTV
These new platforms will, aside of their main purpose, (i.e. watching TV & movies) enable the consumer to access new types of content/applications, add-on functionality and other types of home network connectivity. Accedo Broadband is aggregating and creating a portfolio of leading applications for cross-platform usage for new types of IPTV clients.
One of the most attractive add-on services is casual gaming. Laid-back gaming with well-known concepts has proven attractive for use in front of the TV, with a remote control. Multiplayer functionality will further add to the attraction of casual gaming.
This thesis work will specify, design and develop a multi-player gaming module for IPTV. The module should be separate from the games themselves and multi-player functionality should be possible to integrate in different game concepts via an API.
Three different multi-player gaming modes will be examined:
• Challenge mode (one-on-one gaming, e.g. Chess, Backgammon etc)
• Table mode (many-to-many gaming, e.g. Poker and other card games)
• Tournament mode (structure of several Challenge and Table modes)
The Thesis work will adapt a selection of existing games into multi-player gaming versions for demonstration and testing purposes.
The project is suitable for 1-2 thesis workers for 20 credits. Size can be adjusted with choice of applications and depth of functionality.
The thesis requires knowledge and interest of programming in e.g. Java and C/C++, as well as Internet, Linux and networking technology. A personal interest and drive for the technical development of consumer electronics and TV is greatly appreciated.
