Games have existed probably for more than 3000 years, the first we can recollect being the invention of rolling the dice in Persia.
However, gamification is a different term, which is defined by including the game experience in elements that are naturally not necessarily all fun and games.
In order for a game to be fun, it has to respect four principles:
The easiest way to boost endorphin release with gamification is create situations where your users will feel they have achieved something.
Rather than giving rewards for clicking buttons, you need to create challenges that actually require skill and effort to complete. If they feel they have worked hard, they will get that feeling of fiero and with luck a hit of endorphins.
There are different types of players in a game with different motivation:
User Researcher, passionate about behaviours and building the right products. I 'stash' about research, self-development and education.
Gamification can boost engagement in a product if tied to the right motivation

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!
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.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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.
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.
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!
