Recently, application content which is applied by gamification elements has been enhanced. However, gamification elements has not been strongly applied in the life-logging application. Because, this application is not focused on fun, but on the visualization of the data and the records of the user's external or internal information. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to establish the gamification elements for 'life-logging' service. To do this, the gamification elements were extracted and classified by surveys, exploratory factor analysis and confirmatory factor analysis. As a result, the gamification elements for life-logging applications are formed by three factors; ‘Acting’, ‘Achievement’, and ‘Social’. As the established gamification elements are effectively applied to life-logging applications, it is expected to be a basis for helping to provide enjoyable behavior and usability beyond the common function of user record.

Tour application have a lot of information to offer. Because smart phones’ screen is small, it is necessary to efficiently organize user interface(UI). To have a quantity analysis on human's' attention affected by layout position in tour application UI design, an experiment was proposed and then the data analysis was done. Thirty subjects took part in our experiment and 20 tour application layout images divided into four area of interest (AOI) were taken as the stimulus randomly. Data was recorded by the Tobi Pro X2-30 eye tracker system. The heat maps and gaze plot results were analyzed. And then One-way ANOVA (analysis of variance) statistical method was applied to finding out the significant difference in factor levels. Results show that the active area and eye movements tracking roads within statistic meaning. Moreover, ANOVA (F = 24.28, p = 2.21267e15 < 0.01) shows that the different positions have significance difference effect on subjects' attention and mean of AOI (4) is a significant difference from other three area. And then the influence degree of AOI (4) (F = 13.90, p = 0.098 > 0.05) is weaker than other regions through the simple test. In conclusion, the tour applications should be considered the layout position effects on improving the attraction for corresponding users.

The purpose of this paper is to identify the MOBA storytelling based on the concept of persuasive technology. Most of online games use spoken or written language to make the player's belief in fictional game universe. Unlike early online games such as MMORPGs, MOBA games use the character voice-over for persuasion. This paper sets up three hypotheses that are related to the process of persuasion. First, character quotes can show the character's affiliation information as regional keyword. Second, taunt quotes can show the information about relationship between game characters. Third, all types of character quotes can reflect the updated contents of game. This paper chooses the League of Legends as the example of MOBA games, and analyze the quotes in the game. As a result, three hypotheses are true.

The purpose of this paper is investigated immersions effected by automatic movement and movement using input device in virtual reality games. We compared immersions between two versions of FPS VR game by Unity3D Engine, through questionnaire survey. The first version is FPS VR game with automatic movement system and other version is VR game with manual control movement system. And we applied representation method which generally used in arcade shooting game to VR game. In a PC or console game, a player having a higher involvement level is more immersed. However, as a result of a comparison in the VR environment, the player is less influenced by the enthusiasm through head tracking even if the player does not move by the automatic moving system. An input device that is not suitable for the environment is a big obstacle to immersing in the game. That is, automatic movement system is also suitable for VR game system within the framework of immersion. This result can be applied to other games in various genres, also can be helpful to various directing in game.
