STAMFORD, Conn. — Nov. 5, 2020 — The Game Agency is thrilled to announce the launch of Arcades™, a highly customizable destination for employees to play training games, compete against one another (or their boss!) for recognition and prizes, and collaborate as teams for group awards.
With Arcades, a premium add on to The Training Arcade®, employees can participate in:
- Player-to-Player Challenges
- Team Tournaments
- Daily Mini-Games
- Level-Up and Achievements Systems
- Point Tracking via Individual Game Leaderboards
- Global Leaderboard powered by Experience Points earned along the way
Since its launch, The Training Arcade has had over 10,000 games created and nearly 1 million learners, each averaging 5 hours of play. With the addition of Arcades™, player engagement is forecasted to grow exponentially.
Arcades delivers employee engagement and stickiness while providing tremendous data about player usage, knowledge improvement, and behavioral traits. It’s a first-of-its-kind game-based training destination that will maximize employee engagement, increase frequency of employees’ interaction with the training content and improve accuracy and knowledge retention.
“Over the past 2 ½ years, subscribers to The Training Arcade have been able to quickly create games and export them to any LMS or embed them into their courses or web platforms,” explained Joseph McDonald, Managing Partner at The Game Agency and Head of Production, “the purpose of the technology was to drastically reduce the time it takes to build engaging training games and use them where and when you need them. But we also wanted to create a destination that could provide a home for players and unleash powerful next-gen gamification technology, like Player to Player Challenges, Team Tournaments, Daily Mini-Games, Level-Up and Achievements systems, point tracking via individual game leaderboards and a Global Leaderboard powered by Experience Points earned along the way. So we are thrilled to be launching Arcades™ at a time when organizations are craving new ways to connect team members virtually. Arcades delivers learner engagement and stickiness while providing tremendous data about player usage, knowledge improvement, and behavioral traits.”
