This paper proposes a prototype system for cultural heritage based on brain computer interfaces for navigating and interacting with serious games. By analyzing traditional human-computer interaction methods and paradigms with brain-controlled games it is possible to investigate novel methods for interacting and perceiving virtual heritage worlds. An interactive serious cultural heritage game was developed based on commercial BCI headsets controlling virtual agents in the ancient city of Rome. Initial results indicate that brain computer technologies can be very useful for the creation of interactive serious games.
