Audio games demonstrate an emergence of interactive
parameter mapping sonifications that potentially optimally
display geographical information and a large number of
simultaneous data variables. Our preliminary investigation of
audio games is in response to a call for more research on
parameter mapping sonifications, such as the best way of
presenting auditory legends for representations, effectiveness
of spatial audio, map comprehension techniques, and finding
optimal sonic variable mappings. We also present a proposed
set of auditory map interfaces observed in audio games.
Commercially available interactive interfaces and audio
games – that have been shaped and informally “tested” by
the selection pressures of a demanding consumer market –
can serve as examples of potentially effective conventions
informing future work in the auditory display research
