History Of Gamification

Evolution of Gamification: from Origins to Perspectives

Inception and Early Steps

Over time, gamification has become an integral part of many areas of life, but its history did not begin with the advent of the Internet.

One of the earliest examples of Gamification was a system of awards and badges in railroad companies in the early 20th century to reward employees for good work. However, that was just the beginning.

Digital age

With the development of information technology and the advent of the Internet, gamification became more widespread.

The first online games and forums began to introduce elements of game mechanics to encourage user participation and interaction. In the following decades, gamification has found application in various fields, including education, health care, environment, marketing and business.

For an example of gamification implementation in the environmental sphere, you can see our case study Going to the North developed specifically for Oil & Gas company

Future of Gamification

Today, gamification continues to evolve and expand into new areas. With the emergence of virtual and augmented reality, artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies, new opportunities arise to create even more engaging and effective gamified solutions.

For an example of virtual reality implementation in the form of gamification, you can see our case study developed for Dartmouth College
The trend towards integrating game elements into everyday tasks and processes is only getting stronger, indicating that gamification will continue to evolve and remain significant in the future.
