Marketers are expected to build immersive, connected brand experiences with encounters and rewards—the types of new worlds game designers have long built. This discussion explains how the world-building techniques of game design apply to marketing.


“I’m not a fan of ‘gameification,’ co-opting and extracting something from the user. It’s insincere—typically, it’s just an online marketing technique to encourage engagement with a product or service. I prefer ‘gamefulness’—marketing that applies the positive traits of a game, such as motivation, the pursuit of challenges, perseverance, and a passion for learning new skills.”
