‘The Revolution of Fun’

'The Revolution of Fun'

This week I’ve finished my dissertation, called ‘The Revolution of Fun’. It is a study of applied games and fun as highly powerful tools to achieve goals in non-entertainment contexts through motivation and engagement.

It basically constitutes a summary of the research I’ve been doing over the last two years, both at Academic institutions –University of Lincoln, ERAM (Universitat de Girona)– and as a professional Transmedia & Game Designer – Junior Gamification Consultant @ Cookie Box, Lecturer @ IEBSchool.

Anyway, the best thing about it is that it’s just the starting point! 🙂 I’m really motivated to keep conducting this research, pushing it to a deeper and even more interesting insight. I truly believe that the topic underneath is both really exciting and powerful.

If you feel like checking it (which would make me really happy! ;P), feel free to download it:

I hope you enjoy it, and feel free to contact me if you’ve got any comment, suggestion, etc. Even if you just want to have a chat on the topic: it would be really interesting.

That’s it. Have fun! 😉

PS: Special (and huge!) thanks to Oscar Garcia-panella. I wouldn’t have ended up writing this dissertation without him opening the doors of the wonderful world of Game Design for me. 🙂 🙂
