Gamified Relationship

Games are being designed to strengthen players' relationships

Implications - Whether in the form of cards, boards, or via social apps, games are being designed for the specific purpose of improving the relationships between those who play them. This shift comes as a response to the interpersonal connections that consumers believe technology and social media has failed to foster in a meaningful way. The use of games to strengthen relationships accelerates the bonding that occurs in any face-to-face gaming session, while serving as an effective reactionary tool to the rifts that modern-day consumption habits can cause.
