We describe and evaluate five different level design independent modes of handling camera behavior in the 3rd person game LizzE – And the Light of Dreams in Virtual Reality. The behavior of the different modes will each be illustrated in detail. To evaluate the modes A: Fast circling, B: Lazy Circling, C: No Circling, D: Blink circling and E: Buffered pulling, an experimental study with 33 subjects was conducted. An analysis of the resulting data will show why Buffered pulling seems to be the most promising of the examined modes. We elaborate on the quantitative and qualitative hybrid experiment design and methodology. Eventually the advantages and disadvantages of the five tested modes are discussed in terms of supporting the gameplay, player enjoyment, in game performance and the tendency to induce nausea.
