Playing Games with Yu-Kai Chou

Gamification has the power to motivate users and customers, directing them towards your business needs and objectives. Using gamification techniques you can turn visitors to customers, and customers to loyal members of your business. If you are not familiar with Gamification, I urge you to learn about Gamification and its techniques on Yu-Kai Chou’s website.

Yu-Kai Chou is the top authority on gamification and human motivation through game-like processes design. He’s said to be “at the cutting edge of the field of behavior design.”
Yu-Kai has created the gamification framework named Octalysis which helps you in deriving all the fun and engaging elements found in games and applying them to real-world or productive activities, while putting the emphasis on human motivation when designing your business processes.

I’v had, and still have, the pleasure and privilege of working with yu-kai. Together we have developed the Octalysis Online Tool, to help its users create octalysis graphs, as part of the process of gamifying their businesses.

In the beginning of 2016, I have upgraded this tool, with a new and very useful feature: Save & Load. This feature enables “floating” visitors to register as users, allowing them to save octalysis graphs they have created and load existing octalysis to continue working on them.

This new feature was developed with the purpose of making these processes as quick and simple as possible.
And so, sign up and log in are very straight forwards, and include the very minimum information and interaction from the users.
Saving, and loading, octalysis graphs is even simpler, allowing the user to focus on the creation and perfection of the octalysis and business needs.

I invite you to check out and experience the Octalysis Tool for yourself.
