Choosing mechanics in gamification: what keeps a less experienced player motivated? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Det här arbetet tar sin början i ett problem som rör en mekanism i ett spel som heter OfficeGame. Det finns en önskan att byta ut denna specifika mekanism mot något annat, och det här arbetet kommer fram till två potentiella ersättare. De här koncepten av mekanismer grundar sig i resultaten från en enkät, och testas sedan vidare i ett antal användartest. Slutsatserna skulle kunna sammanfattas med att de två nya koncepten egentligen inte är mer motiverande i sig själva. Men om någon skulle vilja ändra den ursprungliga mekanismen, skulle det kunna vara genom att göra den svårare, lägga till mervärden vid sidan av de virtuella värdena, samt göra kopplingen till hälsa tydligare.

Abstract [en]

This thesis takes off in a problem with a game mechanic in a game called OfficeGame. There is a desire to replace this particular mechanic with something else, and this thesis suggests a couple of potential replacements. These concepts of mechanics are derived from the results of a survey, and are further tested in a number of user tests. The conclusions could be summarized as that the two new concepts are not more motivational in themselves. But if one would like to change the original mechanic, it could be by making it more difficult, adding other values than just virtual, and making a stronger connection to health.
