FINALLY!! Beginner’s Guide to Gamification (22 of 90): Onboarding Phase of Player’s Journey

Onboarding Phase of Player’s Journey

Long overdue, but not forgotten. Here is the 22nd installment of the iconic Beginner’s Guide to Gamification! It was delayed because of my focus on Octalysis Prime, but now I am back. Now that I got Final Cut Pro for OP, I can also input multiple subtitles on a screen, so you get to see when I recorded each scene 🙂

Announcement for Octalysis Prime Pre-Island

As you know, Octalysis Prime is the Gamified Learning Journey where people can create Life-Long Transformation via Behavioral Design. We are still working super hard on creating the gamified platform, but we have released the Octalysis Prime “Pre-Island” experience where members get access to all the content and the community prior to the release of the gamified platform.

I am currently working my life away and creating 3-7 videos every single week to fill the experience up with content and transformational knowledge. Right now we have a special challenge, where if you answer 3 Octalysis-related questions correctly, you can get the first month of OP for just $1.

Look forward to seeing you in Octalysis Prime!!

FINALLY! Beginner’s Guide to Gamification (21 of 90): Discovery Phase

Full year of hiatus for gamification videos

It’s been a full year after since I have my beginner’s guide to gamification videos. I have been mostly working on finishing my book, dealing with client projects, and expanding my international brand. I did, however, make 10 Gamification Videos in a similar fashion for Captain Up called the Engaging Website Design Series.

Someone also informed me about a mistake I made regarding the Keyword game on Episode 20, so I have corrected that.

Discovery Phase in the 4 Experience Phases of a Player’s Journey

In this video, we talk about how to apply the 8 Core Drives into the Discovery Phase of a Player’s Journey. This includes footages from California, Norway, Poland, Bali, Hawaii, Macau, Hong Kong, South Korea, Czech Republic, and more!

Soon introducing a Premium Subscription Plan

I explain in my video how much of the video content will be locked behind a wall soon. This will be rolled out with the biggest project I am working on called Octalysis Prime. It will launch first with a Kickstarter, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, enjoy the video!
