Interesting article about a recent game jam in London using eye tracking tech as an in-game controller. The author describes gameplay mechanics that worked best for the different teams and his own team’s problems designing a strategy game using eye tracking controls.

Cool idea for a game jam with a sponsor showcasing their products and allowing design teams to try it out for a weekend! It’d be great to see that with more hardware/software companies.

Kudos to the teams for testing out different mechanics and to the author for sharing results!
