Hello! Welcome to the Gameful Bits blog!
This is a space where I will share my thoughts on Gamification and Gameful Design, the results of my research, and other relevant information to academics and professionals interested in these topics.
I am Gustavo F. Tondello, a Gamification Consultant and Ph.D. Student at the University of Waterloo, Canada. Rise’s Gamification Gurus Power 100 leaderboard has ranked me one of the top Gamification leaders in the world. My main interests include gamification, and games for health and learning. My research focuses on the design of gameful applications. Before coming to Canada, I worked for several years as a Software Engineer in Brazil. I am also a researcher of Logosophy, and I am affiliated to the Logosophical Foundation of Brazil and of the USA.
