This master thesis covers the design stages of Hapto-Dot, A Haptic - Visual Game, an application that explores the future of new media interactive gaming through mid-air haptic and virtual reality, Game design as a process and game elements as variety of motivating tools are applied in the design process. The purpose of this thesis is to find out how to implement game design process and game elements in multi-sensory immersive new media environments. The study has been conducted within the frames of design research and it consists of two main stages: concept and elaboration. Before conducting the design stages an overview about approaches of game design process and game elements is presented. Concept of Hapto-Dot was evaluated via interviewing sessions with representatives of target group. Results of interviews gave the input for refining the concept and defining game elements in the next elaboration stage. During elaboration stage two iterations were conducted: the first with simulated prototype and the second with functional prototype. Prototypes were play-tested for getting feedback to the design in realistic conditions and for evaluating whether the mobile application is found playful and engaging enough for being popular among target group. As the result of research it could be stated that implementing game design process and game elements in Hapto-Dot was successful and the development of the application.
