Book: The art of game design

Gamification Game Design
  • The objective of a game designer is to create an experience. The game isn’t the experience, it enables it.

    • The game is the part of the experience that the designer can control.
  • The most important skill in game development is listening.

  • When designing products, think about the venue people use these products in.

  • Also think about the questions that a user asks about the product.

  • Think about what is valuable to the players in the game. Why? What is the relationship between these values and their motivations.

    • Ex: HP, XP, Gold etc
    • Essentially, this helps you understand customer incentives better.
  • It’s important to know the theme of your product.
