Virtual reality (VR) games represent a new world for players and game developers alike. Game developers have made numerous innovations in this field, and they continue to search for new ways to immerse players in the VR gaming world. Many challenges arise in the effort to troubleshoot new problems that come with the development of VR. Consumer satisfaction is extremely important, and game developers constantly work to improve and enhance the player experience. In particular, pediatric patients as a whole face unique challenges, and developers must aim to create specific gaming experiences for these individuals. VR gaming may provide multiple therapeutic effects, such as providing analgesia, relieving anxiety, and rehabilitation. In this paper, we provide a model of strategic interaction between rational decision-makers for designing and developing the multiplayer VR game. We will also discuss applications of this technology to enhance the gaming experience and therapeutic benefits to pediatric patients.
