Machinations of Gamification

Machinations is a fantastic game mechanics modeling tool by Joris Dorman –

It allows you to build an interactive model of the basic structure of many types of game and recently has been getting some attention in the world of gamification. I decided to have a quick play and just build a simple Points and Badges system. Click run, then press the Like, Share or Comment buttons to gain XP, unlock badges and increase your level. If nothing else, this will show you why this type of gamification / pointsification in isolation is so boring!
