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!

New Series: Engagement Website Design Series via Captain Up

A series on how to build engagement on your website through the Captain Up Platform

Many of you have asked me about the gamification platform I used on my website here at yukaichou.com. For some, it has been a gruesome but rewarding experience of leveling up and climbing through the ranks.

It’s no secret that the platform I use is called Captain Up. Like I say though, gamification platforms are like Graphic Engines in making games. A good graphic engine can help you create a great game, but it doesn’t mean you automatically have one.

I’ll be creating a short series of videos on how to implement my various Core Drives into a website through the Captain Up Platform.

I may explore other platforms too in the future, but since I enjoy using Captain Up so much, I thought this would be a great start.

Stay Tuned!

Beginner’s Guide to Gamification (20 of 90): Left Brain vs Right Brain Core Drives (Intrinsic vs Extrinsic)

Episode 20: Left Brain vs Right Brain Core Drives (Intrinsic vs Extrinsic Motivation)

Finally a new episode with the Beginner’s Guide to Gamification! In this episode, I talk about the differences between Left Brain and Right Brain Core Drives, which coincide with Intrinsic vs Extrinsic motivation that we often hear a lot about in other pieces of work. I also talk about some strategies on how to make an experience more intrinsic.

In this lesson, I take the viewer to my Hawaii Honey-Moon (which is like the only time I get to work on this), Norway, California, India, Kingdom of Bahrain, and Shenzhen China.

Enjoy!
