Players Wanted

Gamification is a growing industry, but it is struggling. Many upstarts are finding it difficult to apply point systems to real life situations. While competition is motivational, applying it to tasks such as “daily hygiene” or “conversation” is not a simple job. In fact, many programmers have become discouraged, and have given up on gamifying every aspect of our lives.

Which is why we need people like you to add incentives to the process of gamification. By providing users with milestones, digital trinkets, and the illusion of competition we can foster a community of gamification-nauts!

Experience in D&D or WoW is suggested (or any game in which players are motivated to forgo sleep in order to gain meaningless “experience points”). Join Gamification Worldwide, and grind with us!
