The first iteration of the study has been successfully conducted. A new version of the project is currently under development. Please contact us if you'd like to get notified when it's released.
MazeRun is a free immersive VR Locomotion game exploring different methods of movement in virtual space. Pick from three different kinds of locomotion methods and be dropped into a procedurally generated maze where you must get to the exit as fast as possible.
By playing this, you participate in a study that investigates users' preference in VR locomotion and actively contribute to future development of virtual reality field. We simply wish to understand the best and most preferred method of moving in VR for everyone, and this simple VR experience is the first step towards realising this goal.
While you play, we collect the following data: chosen locomotion method and how you liked it, timestamps from key events within the app and your IP address (for demographic analysis). This data is collected purely for research purposes and no personal information will be disclosed to the public.
The following questionnaire evaluates subjective motion sickness. It would be incredibly helpful if you could fill it out, once before trying out the app and one more time right after playing.
If you download this executable and run it, you are agreeing to participate in our study and agree to share the information with us. You give us consent to aggregate and share anonymized data regarding the performance of the presented locomotion methods. You can stop the experiment anytime and using the setup is at your own risk (the creators are not liable for misuse, injury etc.).
We will make the anonymized data related to the locomotion performance later public.
The experimental setup is in accordance with the rules and regulations of the ethics board at Keio Media Design. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org in case there are any issues.
