As a freelancer for Blumatix I worked for 5 months on a HTML 5 browser application. The application is a client side editor written in TypeScript, which is able to create, edit and delete properties of a database. The editor communicates with the server via web sockets. The GUI is written with the kendo framework. The object oriented design is built up on the AngularJS and RequireJS framework because it is a standard MVC architecture.
This master thesis describes how to create a socially interactive character, which engages into a rivalry with another game agent, if a conflict developed between the two of them. The thesis covers a summary about the four key emotions without story in games and introduces the psychological theories of aggressive behaviour and competitive situations. These theories have been used as foundation to set up goals, which the Rivalry Artificial Intelligence (AI) should accomplish.

Ritter Rost is a well-known children’s book series written by Jörg Hilbert und Felix Janosa. Beside of the books there are many other products for children featuring Ritter Rost as the main character like musical-CDs and TV-shows and board games. Furthermore Ritter Rost sometimes appears in the famous TV-program “Sendung mit der Maus“. A 3D animated film called Ritter Rost – Eisenhart und voll verbeult was released in early 2013 in German-speaking cinemas. It was planned to simultaneously release a video game featuring elements of the animated film.

This paper introduces the common AI methods Finite State Machine and Fuzzy Logic. First the theoretical basics of the methods are explained and later an example shows how it is possible to implement these theories in a mobile game. The implemented concept of the AI opponent also covers how to model different skill levels for the AI. In addition there are adaptive methods described how the skill level can be changed during a game. Based on these methods an alternative method is created in which the AI skill searches and adapts to the skill of the human player. This adaptive algorithm should achieve that the challenge level of the AI matches the skill level of the human player. In the end the implemented method is tested. The different AI skill levels play numerous times against each other. Half of the matches are played without the adaptive skill method and the other half is played with the method. This test shows the efficiency of the created method.

This paper shows which physical forces influence the driving behavior of a vehicle. Further, it explains how you can determine these forces and apply it to the rigid body of the car. The thesis considers that different ground surfaces can affect the driving behavior. This document contains a short introduction to Unity3D which explains some useful components of the physic engine. The implementation part covers how you can find realistic values for your desired car model and how you can implement the theoretical equations in a car simulation. It explains how you can create a realistic driving behavior for a buggy in the Unity3D game engine. The paper contains a software architecture that was developed for this physical con-cept with the requirement that you can easy add different car models and engine types.
Don’t Drop! is a micromanagement game with a serious game character. It is used as an advertising feature for several well known companies (Doka, Alpine, Skylotec, Palfinger) and is available for iPhones. The intention of the game is to prevent construction workers from falling down by securing them.
Absturz is a micro-management/business simulation game in which the gamer is the boss of a construction company. Before a new level starts he gets hired and paid to build a house. The Budget of the company functions as health points for the gamer. When a level starts the player has to scroll over a construction site. The workers automatically search for free working places and move around on their own. The player’s job is to click on a worker and to protect him right (rope, helmet…). When a worker starts to fall down and he is wrong or not at all protected he gets injured. The player has to pay for the injured workers. If his budget decreases to 0 before the building is finished it’s game over.
Virtua Tennis 2D is a Flash game written in ActionScript 2. It was a project in the second semester of my degree program Multimedia Technology. The whole game elements are moving in the 3D space. The 3 dimensional coordinates are projected to the 2D screen coordinates. The ball bounces physically correct in the 3D space. I created a simple custom 3D engine for flash.
