The system, no matter what the gameplay method we go for, will be comprised of a consistent value chain
Fundamentally, a game has to go through the above phases.
Figuring out answers to this phase will help us increase retention.
- Discovery- How are we shaping the discovery of the game?
- Are we nudging the user to start playing?
- Or are we giving them a choice to pick an avatar to build bonding with the game first?
- Is our game so complex that we need to tell them a way to play it?
- Or is it so intuitive that press of a button can start it? (Case in point - Google Chrome Dinosaur game)
Building the gameplay and enabling learning through fun.
- What is the time span of the gameplay? Is it going to be Long, Mid-range or short?
- How do we plan the gains and losses to be engaging but not too easy or too difficult?
- What key learnings / messaging do we want to embed in the game so that as a result of the gameplay, the user is more knowledgeable about the product?
Planning a proper end and post-death cycle is key to longer-term ROI.
- What happens when the player quits a game?
- What happens when the game is over but not complete?
- What happens when the end of the game is reached?
- Do we show a leaderboard to show social comparison? If so, how do we make it a pleasant and contextual experience?
- How do we embed user-information capture and when?
- Do you want the user to be able to come back and play the game with their profile? Do you want them to have a profile? Where do we do profile management?
Key Messaging Points to embed in the game
Users cannot remember all key points shared with them, but the good news is, to convert them, some unique and contextual points are enough to drive the point home.
