Abstract: Computer games have become one of the most significant digital applications due to the rapid improvement of software industry. Developers create computer games based on a combination of interleaving elements that contain technical and artistic aspects. Therefore, games development needs a comprehensive ideal path including different design considerations and usability issues than other typical software. In this research, we illustrate the general framework that helps developers to develop effective interactive games with an example of our developed contemporary computer game called Race for Freedom which was inspired by the Death Race film's story. The most significance game development challenges addressed in this research is adapting artificial intelligence techniques in the implementation phase and validating the usability of developed game in the evaluation phase.

Keywords: artificial intelligence; AI; computer games; heuristics; HCI; racing games; shooting games; usability.
