TGT 043: Gamification

This week we talk about bringing gaming ideas into our normal lives, and just a bit of educational games as well.

Off Topic

Come watch us live at Origins this week.  Friday June 16th, at 6:00pm in Room A215.

Some Kickstarters to check out:

  • Lords of Hellas https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/awakenrealms/lords-of-hellas
  • Deception: Undercover Allies https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/152730994/deception-undercover-allies-0
  • Bio-Logic  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gaiagamestudios/bio-logic-microscopic-domination-inside-the-human

And a couple quick questions this week from Sam (on what is “mass market” and “variants introduced by expansions”) and Steven (on how to start going to Cons).

On Topic

We start out talking about Gamification in fitness (AppleWatch and FitBits).  And then there’s a bit about apps that try to gamify tasks lists.  We then go into gamifying games with the goal of education which leads Chris to add a show on educational games to the future lineup.
