John Vaskis:  "Setting up a gaming crowdfunding campaign is easy. Creating a successful one that reaches its fullest potential takes some more effort though — think of it as the difference between beating Halo on Normal and Difficult."

Phil Harris:  "In games themselves there is often more than one medium that the author has to consider. This is no longer just the written word but how this integrates with the rest of the function of gameplay; such as sound, visual style, art, design, direction and programming; not withstanding budget constraints."

Alex DiFiori:  "There’s been a lot of buzz lately about Ingress, Google’s latest foray into online social networking. Instead of focusing on creating another facebook, Ingress is Google’s attempt at using that massive pile of data they’ve been collecting about us to use in a way that hasn’t really been done before, in an augmented reality game" ...

We could indeed ask whether online gaming isn't augmented reality's future. I'm not an expert with AR but it seems to me this promising technology is taking time to find massive scale applications. Not unlike voice recognition. Maybe gaming is the way to make it finally happen?

Nik Pregelj's curator insight, March 20, 2013 9:59 PM

This article looks at the google glasses and the possiblity of creating an Augmented reality where you can turn ANY real life environment into a 'battlefield' for first person shooting games just by wearing the glasses.

 

I think the fun factor of being able to turn any environment you want into a 'map' to game on and then play a first person shooter in it could definetly make this extremely successful. This could definately be the future and next level of gaming.

 

Although this new way of gaming could be extremely fun it may not be appealing to all gamers and/or porffesional and competitive gamers who prefer to be inside in a relaxed position instead of having to be physically active for long periods of time while they game.

 

This could be an issue as to how succesfull and widespread this new form of gaming will be with a lot of people not wanting to have to be physically active while they game. This could hinder the success however there could still and probably will be a huge market for this type of gaming with how immersive and interactive it is.

 

Theres also huge possibilities with advertising with this sort of gaming aswell.

Luca Brigada's curator insight, March 19, 2013 6:48 PM

Gamification is "the use of game mechanics and game design techniques in non-game contexts" (mashable.com) and it's a huge trend in marketing right now, as well as an idea that is being embraced in health, education and non-profit sectors.

 

Examples of gamification are:

- Badges to reward participation (e.g foursquare)

- Assigning missions and using levels of achievementImposing time limits Points

- Rewards and leaderboardsMaking everyday tasks fun by turning them into a game.

 

Matmi's curator insight, March 28, 2013 6:55 AM

Like this author states - gaming is a serious business. Games are no longer just a teengage boys hobby - they are a serious revenue generating tool. More and more people from all walks of life are playing casual mobile games so there is even more of a need for businesses to be ahead of the game ( excuse the pun ) and have their own game developed to get customers interacting with their brand.

Danny Ong's curator insight, September 24, 2013 1:26 AM

In this article, it is shown how people applies gaming-related concepts into their daily activities. Therefore, if we could apply the same concepts when it comes to businesses, plenty of improvement will be seen among the people. One of the example is Foursquare giving people achievements if they had logged into several places using Foursquare. If this concept is applied to the business people, there might had a chance they are motivated by the rewards that will be given if they done an excellent job.
