Computer games increasingly influence our culture and everyday life. They permeate traditional media, e.g. the movie and film industry, and affect the way we interact and use digital media, especially in the case of youths and young adults. Therefore player behaviour and phenomena like 'cheating' need to be investigated and addressed by the scientific community. Cheating poses a challenge in this regard because normally cheating means 'breaking the rules' by definition, which may include the rules of a controlled scientific experiment. But then it is also not possible to study cheating in every detail 'in the wild' for the same reason. In this paper we present a first approach towards an experimental design to investigate the influence of (felt) distance on cheating behaviour in computer games and present some preliminary results. Furthermore, we show how free software tools can be used to implement the testing environment and we demonstrate the modifications we made to the game employed in the experiment.
