Game mechanics and game dynamics

Game mechanics are the rules and rewards that form the building blocks of gameplay and create an engaging experience. BI WORLDWIDE strategically and tactically deploys specific game mechanics to make gamification challenging, fun and rewarding.

What are game mechanics?

The essence of gamification is the application of game mechanics to "gamify" an activity. Game mechanics are the rules and rewards that build the foundation of gameplay. When strategically and tactically deployed in accord with game dynamics, it makes gamification challenging, fun and rewarding.

We've identified the following ten primary game mechanics, which make the foundation of gamification:

What are game dynamics?

Game dynamics refer to a set of emotions, behaviours and desires found in game mechanics that resonate with people and are used with game mechanics to foster engagement and motivate participants.

Examples of game dynamics include:

  • Competition
  • Collaboration
  • Community
  • Collection
  • Achievement
  • Surprise
  • Progress (emotional)
  • Exploration

These emotions are the compelling desires and motivation that trigger behaviour economics and intrinsic motivation. Overall, these emotions are the motivations that not only define, but propel Game Dynamics.
