AbstractLittle Garden is an endless survival game that utilizes the Microsoft Kinect as its only input method. The game started near the end of the Spring 2014 semester as an interactive display to be installed at University of Arizona Medical Center, Children's Ward. Currently, an instance of the game is installed in the ward. Among the unique challenges facing this project is its intension as a public display, the unique location of the Children's Hospital, and utilization of Microsoft Kinect as the input method. This paper details the design process behind the game, obstacles encountered during production, the result of the project, and lessons learned during the process.
