Theory of Gamification - May 31, 2022

WHAT TYPE OF PLAYER ARE YOU?

Find out what type of gamer you are! Will you be a killer? Or maybe an explorer! Find it out with this quick test!

In the last article, we talked about the “four types of player” model depicted by Richard Bartle. You can read the blog post here but, long story short, recognising what type of player is most frequent in your audience, will help you choose the right game elements, mechanics and dynamics to embed in your game/gamified ambient.

This will help you cater to your customers’ emotional needs and keep them engaged!

Also, remember that there are more than 50 game elements to choose from, as we talked about in this article, so… you gotta start somewhere! 😜

Anyway, if you’ve landed on this blog, you’re probably a gamer yourself right? So why don’t you test yourself and find out what type of gamer you are? 😏

It only takes 3 minutes

Then let us know in the comments below, if the result reflects your gaming preferences!
