Kingdom Hearts videogame worlds crawl

William Huber. 2009-2010.

  

------------------------

Data:

 

Sampled frames from the video capture of the complete traversal (playing the game from the beginning to the end) of the videogame Kingdom Hearts (2002, Square Co., Ltd.)

 

------------------------

Timescales:

 

Game play length: 62.5 hours, in 29 sessions over 20 days.

Animation: 7.8 minutes.

 

From the original video capture done at 1 frame per second, every 16th frame was sampled. In the animation, these sampled frames are played back at 30 frames per second.

 

------------------------

Mapping:

 

Completing Kingdom Hearts took 29 separate sessions. The sampled frame sequences

are positoned from left to right in the order of sessions.

 

In the course of the game, a player moves through a number of different worlds. The ordering of frame sequences from bottom to top corresponds to the order of the worlds as they are visited during the game play.
