Play can be a powerful experience. Here I present a simple framework to encourage and create a more play-like environment in your gamification

True true - funnily enough just been reading rules of play today. I know it is all semantics and the like, but I do like to work the old grey cells out on this kind of thing.

Some embryonic thoughts that I would love to hear your views on - cryptic as ever though!

More random wanderings of my mind. Where do narrative, story and history fit together!

Still figuring out games and play here. Trying to work out the core elements of each. What am I missing???

Ooo. That works well I think. Simpler meaning to explain than system vs player based rules. Possibly confusing when you consider game dynamics - though actually they are the player interactions and emergent gameplay - so that fits. Mmm.

Going over play and game in my mind. Part of Chris crawfords definition of games is a closed formal system. Can play also be considered a closed formal system as well?

All stems from this line of thought. Attempted this a few years ago, now I have a better grasp of the language I can try again lol http://www.gamified.co.uk/2015/03/06/learning-about-playfulness-from-toca-boca/#.VPm4AOwyFEQ.google_plusone_share and http://www.gamified.uk/2015/02/26/play-games-toys-playfulness-and-gamification/

Now here is something I would like to set up experiments to prove!!

Playing with how my user types might evolve over time (obviously based on how +Richard Bartle 8 types evolve). This is just speculation and vaguely educated guess work.

Oh for the time to do real experimental research at the moment!!

Introduction

I’m a web designer by trade since 2000, now working as the Intranet Webmaster at Capgemini UK. Whilst I have achieved a high level of expertise in this, these days my areas of interest and passion revolve around the exciting worlds of Gamification, Social Media, Technology and Video Games.

I am amazed every day by how much is happening in these fields and enjoy feeling part of this. I blog on a weekly basis about Gamification, social media and other side topics. I write about video games on my games review website (Yet Another Review Site running since 2006) and in 2012 I also self published a short eBook on gamification –Gamification: A Simple Introduction.
