Gamification and Game Experiences

Gamification concept

As an escape room builder, Modern Fables has expertise in designing immersive game experiences, which is a core element of gamification.  Escape Rooms and gamification both look at how to motivate people to make certain decisions as well as educate them on a variety of topics.

In fact, creating escape rooms is a form of gamification in itself, where players are presented with challenges and puzzles to solve in a fun and engaging way.  It is these factors that create motivation for an endless array of tasks.

With this expertise, Modern Fables offers gamification services to businesses and organisations that are looking to create engaging and interactive experiences for their employees or customers.  Our aim is to motivate your audience towards behaviour and goals you want them to achieve.

We could help you design gamified experiences that align with your goals, whether it’s to increase productivity, improve teamwork, or enhance customer engagement.

Examples of gamification services we offer include designing custom games, developing game-based learning or productivity programs, and creating team-building experiences.

As respected builder of escape rooms, Modern Fables has the advantage of being able to create physical game experiences, especially valuable in the hospitality and tourism sectors, to create immersive experiences that enhance the guest experience and keep them coming back for more.

More on Gamification

Gamification is the process of using game design elements and mechanics in non-game contexts to drive user engagement and motivation. In other words, it’s about taking the fun and excitement of games and applying them to real-world situations to achieve specific goals.

The gamification process typically involves the following:

  1. Identify Business Objectives: We work closely with each client to understand their unique needs and goals, and we identify the specific business objectives that they want to achieve through gamification.
  2. Define Game Mechanics: We determine the game mechanics and design elements that will be used to achieve the desired outcomes. This goes beyond the simple implementation of game badges and leaderboards – a lot of the time such aspects are implemented without much thought toward context and the motivations associated with that context.
  3. Develop Game Content: We create custom game content that is tailored to the client’s business objectives and target audience, using engaging visuals and storytelling to keep players engaged and motivated.
  4. Test and Refine: We test the gamification experience with real users to ensure that it meets the desired outcomes and make adjustments as needed based on user feedback.
  5. Launch and Monitor: We launch the gamification experience and monitor its effectiveness over time, making any necessary adjustments to ensure that it continues to drive engagement and achieve business objectives.

Through this process, we are able to create immersive and engaging gamified experiences that help businesses achieve their goals and stay ahead of the curve. Contact us today to learn more about our gamification process and how we can help your business.

Building a Custom Escape Room

Designing and building a bespoke escape room is an exciting process requiring careful planning and attention to detail.
Like any other escape room maker, we have our own process to design and build games.  Here’s how we do it:

1. Escape Room Concept and Theme

The first step when we design an escape room is to come up with an over-arching concept and a story. This could be anything from more traditional escape room themes like a haunted house or bank heist, or something totally custom (which is what we usually do!). All our work is engaging and immersive, with a storyline that ties all the puzzles and clues together. Every part of the escape game from the introduciton players receive to the clue system used as well as the puzzles and set go towards telling the storyAnd like every stage of this process, it is in close collaboration with our clients.  Communication and transparency are vital to our work.

2. Custom Puzzle Design

Escape room puzzles should be challenging but not impossible, and should always make sense within the storyline. We always strive to create interesting puzzles rather than use off-the-shelf ideas.

3. Layout of the Escape Room

Layout of the space in an escape room is critical to the success of the game. We consider the flow of the game, the placement of the puzzles, clues, and the safety of the players. And it almost goes without saying that we make sure the room looks stunning and fits in with the story of the game!

4. Building Your Custom Escape Room

Once there’s a solid design in place, it’s time to start building the game! We bring in collaborators who build the physical set and artists who create the visual aesthetic to our brief. We use trusted contractors who usually work on feature films to make sure the look is impressive and totally immersive.  Building an escape room is different of course, but with a number of projects under our belt this difference is second-nature.  And don’t worry about phrase ‘feature film’ – that doesn’t mean we can only work on multi-million pound projects!  We can work towards any budget and will always be open and honest about what your budget can do.

5. Testing the Escape Game and it's Puzzles

Before the escape game is ready, we test it with our network of experienced players. This identifies any issues with the game so we can make any necessary changes. Our extensive experience in actually running escape games (rather than just building them) means such changes are pretty minimal!

6. Launching your Bespoke Escape Room!

Once all parties are confident that the escape room is ready, it’s time to launch! Due to our experience we can also advise on marketing and running escape rooms to get the most out of your investment.

Designing and building custom escape rooms is a complex and rewarding process. With our experience and creative edge, we can create an immersive and exciting game that your players will love!
