Let’s get gamified!

How do game elements change the way we interact with information, products, and tasks in general?

We all grew up playing the quiet game, right? Spoiler alert, this was our parents way of gamifying quiet time so they could have a second to think straight. Competition, points, leaderboards, rules of play; these are all ways that products and services are gamified to pique our interest. The education sector is chock full of gamification as well. Does it work?

Let’s explore the space where games and design interact.

Our collaborator, Shovels and Whiskey, is a Virtual and Augmented Reality prototyping studio mining for innovative solutions for useful VR. They will be demoing an interactive VR experience called “The Thinking Machine”.

Alright, enough with the intellectual talk, let’s play some games! Join us October 16th from 6–9pm at QuarterWorld (4811 SE Hawthorne Blvd) and let’s drink, play, and talk games.

Mention dMob at the door to get in for free!


Tell me about dMob!

dMob (or Design Mob) is a free gathering for every friend, fan, and patron of design and the visual arts. You’re a part of Portland’s energetic design community, and this is for you. Since 2003, AIGA Portland orchestrates a friendly, laid-back dMob on the 2nd Wednesday of every other month. Get to know people. Talk shop with cohorts. Offer to buy someone a drink! Inspiration, opportunity, and friendship abound.
