For the past year, we have built a state-of-the-art gamification system to power our own metaverse and tie it into other worlds, games, and social networks.
What is gamification though? And why is everyone talking about it?
Play is an inherent part of human life, providing a space for learning, growth, and personal development. This is why gamification, the integration of game elements into non-game contexts, has become such a powerful tool for enhancing people’s lives. From improving productivity to boosting self-esteem, the psychological benefits of gamification are vast and far-reaching.
One of the biggest advantages of gamification is that it encourages social interaction. By playing games with others, we can share experiences, build relationships, and learn from each other. This not only makes the experience more enjoyable, but it also allows us to expand our social networks and improve our communication skills.
Games are also a fantastic tool for training the mind in logic and problem-solving. Through gameplay, we are able to tackle complex challenges, test our decision-making abilities, and continuously improve our skills. And with the added bonus of continuous assessment and feedback through a scoring mechanism, we can see our progress and work towards our objectives with clarity and direction.
Gamification provides a sandbox for intuitive learning, allowing us to experiment and explore new ideas in a safe and supportive environment. This encourages risk-taking and fosters creativity, imagination, and innovation. And with the ability to work towards multiple objectives simultaneously, we can see a compounding effect in our growth and achievements.
Another benefit to this approach is that learning within a more ‘fun’ and engaging environment, can not only greatly improve the speed at which the learning experience happens, but can also help to ‘lock-in’ and retain the lessons and information learned.
This is perhaps because the learning itself is associated with a happier, more ‘fun’ memory, as opposed to a more traditionally difficult or traumatic/stressful one.
One of the key psychological benefits of gamification is that it provides strong motivation to complete tasks. Whether it’s the fun of play or the psychology of various game elements like a scoring system and leaderboard, gamification can encourage us to stay focused and work towards our goals. Moreover, gamification can enhance our self-esteem by providing incremental achievements and recognition. This can create a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction, improving our overall well-being and happiness.
Gamification Made Easy.
Within the next few weeks, we will be rolling out our Gamification Made Easy concepts Netizen & Netizen Labs, opening doors for many cross-project partnerships and collaborations with different communities. Meanwhile, we will gather continuous feedback to improve our gamification capabilities. These concepts will revolutionize how we, as citizens of the internet, interact and build in the web3 era by empowering ourselves through gamification. Which so happens to be fun and makes people happy!
Stay tuned. Your patience will be rewarded.
