Default [Q] Disable Immersive Mode in KitKat

I've searched how to disable immersive mode in KitKat, and found nothing but topics on how to enable immersive mode.

In some games, immersive mode is annoying, since you'll swipe an area of the game interface near the immersed status bar, and the status bar will appear while gaming.

Is there an app, mod, or setting that can disable immersive mode?

Thanks for any information.

I would also like to disable immersive mode but for different reason. Immersive mode hides the clock, battery, and notifications. It's really annoying to have to swipe inside the game area, altering the game state, to see the time or what app gave me a notification. I would rather lose the 20 pixels of screen real estate to keep the bar visible.

I want to disable this as well. That's the most irritating thing ever - UI elements that's supposed to give me control of the device, disappear or change their place.

Likewise, infuriating! Constantly hides navigation buttons
