The objective of Byte_Reuse is to create a user-generated mobile game by reusing digital data. The main focus of this project is to introduce a new perception of looking at digital data we produce, and to develop a user-centered game that gives players an active role in playing the game. It also explores how user-generated game can create more engaging game experience, and how incorporating everyday activities such as taking pictures and sending text messages can extend the boundary of the gameplay. In developing a game, text messages are chosen as source data, because sending and receiving SMS messages became part of our everyday life. I think my project could be particularly good value to game designers and developers, because they can benefit from the idea of reusing existing data when they make game engines. This idea could open up the possibility of how reusing existing data can be taken in mobile game design.
