The Sensorium family of games provides a platform and environment for multiplayer games in a pervasive environment. Each player is equipped with a mote, which (along with those of other players) is an element in a wireless sensor network. Serisorium games are pervasive in the truest sense: that is. sensory events in the environment trigger events in the game. For example, walking under a light may cause a loss of game lives. In this paper, we describe the Sensorium game platform and Trove, an implemented game which is a member of the Sensorium family. We describe our experiences of player Trove arid heuristic evaluations of its usability. Copyright 2005 ACM.
