Survey from children with brain tumor on Color Psychology and weapon selection for games

Dated: 8th March, 2012 
Conducted By : 3D GIT Researchers
Hospital : PIMS  Islamabad

We have done a survey on colour psychology to the children with brain tumours. This survey is done because there is a need to know the colours which patients of brain tumour like or which they don’t like. This survey helps 3D-GIT Team to develop the game with colour scheme that attract patients to play and don’t make them stressed while playing game.
We have also done a survey with same patients to know what kind of weapons they like to play within game. And to find any new weapons that have been never used before in shooting games and patients want to use them in game to destroy their enemy. We got success in finding unique and new weapons that helps 3D GIT Team to use that weapon along with other weapons in game. This will attract patients to play a game having features of their interest.
