BCMS Honours Topic: "Improving Mêlée combat in first-person shooters."
I will use Unity to design a series of experiments in which I will explore the difficulties that players have with navigating and target location in a first person context. These issues are expected to be particularly severe in mêlée range. Using the results from these tests, I will create a system in which players can use a visual aid that represents the awareness of your surroundings compiled from your senses in a real-life context.
I will evaluate the visual aid, and refine the design it as neccessary.
