Game Design & Human Motivation

Game Design & Human Motivation

In game design, you don’t worry about what users want or needs, you focus on how they feel. They don’t use your product, they play it. We must understand human motivation as it relates to enjoyable product experience

Intrinsic vs Extrinsic motivation:

  • Intrinsic: We do things because they are inherently satisfying
  • Extrinsic: We do things to earn rewards and achieve external goals

Rewards can undermine intrinsic motivation in the wrong environment. Gamification works when the underlying experience was already a ‘game‘ – work is perceived as a game

Flow State as a Product

Flow State as a Product

Games need good goals: concrete, achievable, and rewarding The design of these goals can help gamify your product fueling your potential for the flow state. Products need rapid and robust controls and platforms, the extreme ease/efficient use of a product can make it feel more like a game.

Five key components of flow:

  • Know what to do next
  • Know how to do it
  • Free from distractions
  • Get clear and immediate feedback
  • Must feel a balance of challenge and skill – if the activity is too hard, we feel anxious. If the activity is too easy, we feel bored.

Start-Up Advice

  • Always raise one round of capital ahead of schedule when possible. At any given point, you have 6-10 years of financial runway
  • It helps you make deliberate decisions proactively rather than reactively. Create momentum – narratives and product waitlists can help you get ahead.
  • Don’t buy into your own BS – while narratives can bring in money, don’t be pressured into spending the capital outside of the ventures means. Wait until you meet product fit and use the capital for scaling.
  • Understand your market value proposition. don’t grow before you’re ready to grow

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
