New Examples of Gamification Added to the GBase – July 20, 2012


Hello GCo Readers! Today in our Gamification Company Database we have one up and coming company and two old but classic examples of great gamification.

  • SessionM is HTML5-based platform that adds a lightweight gamification layer to mobile applications that recently raised $20M in Series B funding.
  • The Fun Theory was a contest held by Volkswagen to discover innovative ideas to promote social good actions with fun. This was the contest responsible for one of Gabe Zichermann’s favorite uses of gamification: The Speed Camera Lottery
  • Dog Poop Lottery was an initiative by the New Taiwan municipality that exchanged lottery tickets for bags of dog excrement. The top prize was a gold ingot worth around $2200 and attracted 4,000 participants.
