This paper describes the modifications required to use advanced, immersive I/O devices such as domes and Kinects in videogames (the case study includes four games). A standalone library of components has been created to allow easy adaptation of other games, with few modifications required in the game architecture. The changes include the creation of a cubemap to obtain the whole surroundings of the user in the game, and the use of post-processing GPU shaders to render this cubemap realistically in the curved surfaces. Additionally, the adaptation process of the GUI is described, and additional interaction modes using Kinects are presented.
