My Thesis Project at UCI, I will explore player immersion in videogame experiences through the design and implementation of environmental audio and soundscape. I will explore practical approaches to building soundscapes and collect player feedback to quantify the efficacy of design mechanisms and choices. Particular player experiences that I am interested in exploring relate to immersion in the world of the game and psychosomatic responses to the environment. I will explore the effects, challenges, and limitations of Stereo and Binaural Playback systems.
