A novel way of playing games called ambient gaming is defined and described. Growing out of ideas in ambient music, ambient gaming is defined as ‘ignorable as it is interesting’(Eno, 1978). Ambient gaming is set in the context of existing gaming systems, including computer games, Live Action Role Playing, augmented reality and pervasive gaming. Further, ambient games are set in a technological context, showing that the technology enabling their development is now becoming available. The specification and implementation of an ambient game prototype, Ambient Quest, is described. Finally future directions for research and application of ambient games are given.
