Game Visualizer is an interactive visualization written in processing language. Its purpose is to serve
as visual guide for choosing a video game. The design of the visualization consists of two components:
(1) A universe of video games released between the year 1994 and 2011. The universe is represented as
radial layout based on a decomposition algorithm that represents high rated games at the center of
the universe and low rated games at the periphery of the universe.
(2) The second component is a decision tree that encapsulates user choices and provide filters for
distilling the universe of games to a small subset that can be use to either select the final game
or compare against similar games.
The software runs both as a standalone application as well as an applet. As of this writing it runs on
both Internet Explorer and Google Chrome.
