The Fuga Project
The Fuga Project is a Half-Life 2 single player based modification for psychophysiological research as part of the EU research project "The Fun of Gaming: Measuring the Human Experience of Media Enjoyment". The mod was developed by a group of three students from the Blekinge Institute of Technology, GAMALab in Sweden.
The mod comes with 4 non-combined levels used to analyze different gameplay behaviors of players. There are still minor gameplay bugs. The game modifications were successfully used for several experiments. An academic paper on the modifications was published here (free download).
- DLLs have been modified to automatically log in-game events to a text-file and a psychophysiological data collection system. It is a simple game metrics analysis system that can be extended to log a lot of different game metrics in Half-Life 2.
