A game installation is a game that incorporates the surrounding environment, something that has mostly been explored on a city-wide scale. This paper concerns the creation of a game installation set within a room, and explores locative media, mixed reality games and the fourth wall. A framework for game installations has been designed and tested with a group of participants in a case study. The results in this paper show that the final artefact could be considered a success; recommendations for deeper development of the framework are also provided.
