2. Smart Analytics 


We use smart analytics to measure player engagement and outcomes.  

Games provide interactive environments which simulate real-life challenges. Game analytics allow us to measure how players respond to these challenges.

Clients can choose basic analytics packages that focus on player uptake, or advanced packages that look at multiple events to measure behaviour change. 

This is a game-changer for behaviour change and health projects as it provides real-time and organic data.  

This service provides valuable data for our customers and stakeholders to measure KPIs and evidence ROI to funders.

"Using game analytics for research in psychology, especially in behaviour change has given me a completely new and unique perspective on the research possibilities. Being able to see how my participants act within in the game has enabled me to draw conclusion on their behaviour in the real world"
