M-EDGE - Music-emotion driven game engine
1 Aug 2007
M-EDGE ("Music-Emotion Driven Game Engine") is an innovative project merging together music, games, physical computing and cognitive science research. The aim of the project is to assess and further investigate cognitive science topics to design and develop an interactive and emotionally-aware musical game engine that enables a completely new experience within music related video games. Using this engine as a development tool, game developers will be able to build content on top of it where players are not limited to control their actions in the virtual world by using standard interfaces, like a mouse or keyboard, but also to directly affect the game flow by expressing emotional content through the playing of a real musical instrument.
