Gamification Notes:

This is the 4th Episode out of 90 on Gamification, and it introduces my core framework: Octalysis. For those who are following my work, you’ll see a lot of repeat information, but after this episode, we’ll start diving into new content that I haven’t covered yet (there’s a reason why I set it to 90 episodes).

In this episode, we cover:

  • What Octalysis is
  • Reason behind creating Octalysis
  • Review of the 8 Core Drives in Gamification
  • Basics of Octalysis
  • Left Brain and Right Brain Octalysis
  • White Hat and Black Hat Gamification

As I’m still doing a lot of new experiments in these videos, please leave as much feedback as possible (perhaps there is a way to gamify “brutal feedback”)

By the time I finished all 90 episodes, my video editing skills will most likely surpass my Gamification skills…if that is even possible!

Episode 2: What is Gamification

Here’s a quick outline of this episode:

  • Intro
  • Gamification is not new
  • Gamification is really “Human-Focused Design”
  • It remembers the “feelings” of the humans in the process
  • Some examples of Gamification
  • Since Games are the first industry to get Human-Focused Design right, we now call it Gamification
  • Gamification is not part of the gaming industry
  • A big problem in the industry is that people believe that gamification is just adding points, leader board, and badges.
  • Points, badges, and leaderboard are a result of Gamification, but they do not define it.
  • All games have game elements in them, but only a handful are fun and addicting

New Video Show: The Beginner’s Guide to Gamification (1 of 90)

Some friends have recommended me to make a video show on Gamification and so I decided to start a Video Guide that shares everything I know about Gamification.

This is a video series where I talk about all the aspects game mechanics and fun stuff of Gamification.It will involve 90 episodes, each lasting between 5-10 minutes.

Above is the first video, which includes:

  • Intro
  • Objectives of the Guide
  • Yu-kai’s Qualification
  • Brief intro on what is Gamification
  • Example of how Games make kids hardcore grunt workers
  • How Gamification is a booming field
  • Rules to his Keyword Collection Game and a Weight Loss plan

As you can see in the video, I made a variety of experiments to make the guide a bit more playful (and random).

Look forward to Feedback!
