shufflebrain.jpg

Amy Jo Kim over at Shufflebrain has crystallised the 5 Rules of Game Mechanics:

1. Collecting

2. Points

3. Feedback

4. Exchanges

5. Customization

…and applied these to social media plays in an excellent presentation. I agree with Susan Wu, this is a must read.

Amy Jo concludes with a prognosis for the future…expect to see more serious applications that feel like games and more games that teach real-world skills.
