Gamification, Simulation and Serious Games.

What is Gamification?

Gamification is the integration or application of games and game-related concepts to everyday tasks such as learning, wellness, productivity and business activities. From the perspectives of content marketing and advertising, we pride ourselves on being able to develop a game to enhance engagement with any brand, product or service.

Gameplay has long been a popular pursuit, from the simplest moves of Go, first played in China 3,000 years ago, to the massively multiplayer online games of today. In 2016, digital games generated $101.6 billion in sales globally (according to Statista), and their popularity is driving the adoption of elements of gamification in many other areas such as business and education.

Another primary driver is the rapid uptake of social networks, now used by 78% (according to Statista, 2016) of American Internet users, where reward and status elements are embedded in implicit and explicit forms in people’s interactions in their engagement in online communities. Game elements and competition are interspersed throughout the platforms that have made social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram so popular.

According to the Pew Center for Research, “Serious gaming simulations and game mechanics such as leaderboards, achievements, and skill-based learning are becoming embedded in day-to-day business processes, driving adoption, performance, and engagement.” Elements of game mechanics are being employed nowadays in training, marketing, education, and wellness initiatives.1

Gamification Statistics

The total global revenue in the learning games market in 2012 was $3,912 million and with a five year CAGR of 18%, this revenue is expected to reach $8,958 million in 2017.1

  •    • 11% higher in terms of factual-knowldege
  •    • 9% increase in retention rate.3

Beyond learning, the global gamification market is set to grow from USD 1.65 billion in 2015 to USD 11.10 billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 46.3%.3
