Abstract: The majority of existing gesture recognition games consist of gesture recognition and scoring, thus providing game content and interaction. This paper uses Leap Motion gesture recognition to present a game model that reflects gesture-dependent impact levels and the physical characteristics of players. A game was implemented in which gestures are recognised through the Leap Motion that accompanies a player's gesture by providing a gesture-specific weight, thereby considering the player's physical characteristics. Leap Motion is used as the interface with which to implement a natural punch-style for gesture generation and to stimulate a player's interest and immersion experience.

Keywords: Leap Motion controller; gesture recognition; game modelling; virtual reality; visual appearance; punch style; gesture-dependent impact levels; player physical characteristics; gesture generation; immersion experience.
