Play • 45 min

Troy Skinner is a researcher at Immersyve who studies both games and game designers to learn why people play video games and what keeps them engaged.  He works with behavioral scientists and psychologists to operationalize these insights to make game design decisions. 

In this episode, Troy discusses the importance of providing players with consistent growth and long-term goals and he uses an analogy comparing game genres to making pizza.  He discusses the intrinsic and extrinsic goals of players and how collecting and analyzing these data points can help developers determine appropriate rewards and monetization strategies for their games.
