Understanding Gamification

Gamification has been around now for quite some time, but there are still many people still unsure about it’s purpose and application. Common questions like, Can it be used for only internet or web applications? To gamify, is to create something more fun? Gamifying is businesses making promotional or marketing focused games?

Gamification can be used in many different applications than just marketing or collecting user data.

In other words...

gamification uses psychology & data analysis to solve commercial & non commercial problems.

Game Mechanics Vs Business Process


In games we naturally coheres players into doing what we want them do, they have fun with levels of perceived freedom. However the reality often in life, work and often education is that there are very often strict rules on what needs to be performed in order to be rewarded.

Rewards, Progression and Motivation


We play games for lots of different reasons, there have been many studies and philosophies on what motivates people in applications and in life and the workplace. Understanding how to encapsulate progression, knowing what’s need to stay visually and culturally relevant.

Experience, Interaction and Engagement
