The term "gamification" is not only a catchphrase. There are many advantages to gaming in management training, and HR and Learning & development practitioners must not overlook them. It's a win-win situation for you and your learners if you include games and competition in your business training. Why would 22 individuals gather to bounce a ball onto a muddy, frigid field on a chilly, wet day in February? Soccer is among the world's most popular pastimes for several reasons, including the following: Firstly, it's easy to learn, and second, it does have a powerful motivation at its core: the desire to succeed. Take away that goal, and the whole game loses its novelty value. Football, cricket, tennis, baseball, or any other professional sport depends on the competitive drive to garner a large following. And it's ultimately the same with virtual activities. Without further ado, let's jump to the core and see how gamification in schools' functions.

Hi! Weekday Escape and Weekday Puzzle are here!


Amajeto is back with a new game and it's a good one! Then tomoLaSiDo wants you to make a cheesecake - a device for producing cheesecakes is in the apartment, you just need to get ingrediences. Primera/Cabeza remade another colorful game from 2011 and the next is point'n'click adventure by Emily Rook (Péťa Emmerová) in a style of Grounhog Day. Amélie, a witch, creates a time loop and you repeat one day many times until you get to one of the three ends. Notice, that the game can be played directly in a browser or downloaded, but can be saved only in download version. If the game played in a browser crashes, your progress is lost.

Beautiful puzzler by JCodina and ArcaCrema is a dreamy and relaxing game - a demo only, but has 28 levels. The last comes FeatureKreep's play on words - you are supposed to make a dictionary and infer the meaning of words from the context.


Have a good time and enjoy!

There is one thing that bothers me equally as a person who writes texts about games, and simply as a gamer - the insignificance or even irrelevance of text-based video game reviews.

Gaming has gone through quite a radical change since the rather primitive days when Atari ruled the roost. We have gone from 8-bit graphics to VR and photorealistic ultra-HD such as MS Flight Simulator. But before the days of Steam and Oculus, there was a time when internet browser games were incredibly popular.

Weekday Puzzle (1).jpeg

Welcome to Weekday Puzzle!


After several weeks we've got a separate Weekday Puzzle. First you need to help a small frog in cassovary's world which is being flooded after a huge rainstorm (and the water is still rising). MrNannings's puzzler is again very well done in all aspects and since the difficulty is reasonable and controlling simple, it's a perfect relax game. From Neil Saddie (Sadie Brothers) comes grim chess game with really original concept, and also a soothing game about reclaiming land from the sea and growing as much tulips as possible there..


Have a good time and enjoy!

Hi! Weekday Escape is here!


Two short Selfdefiant's are for the start, and then comes isotronic/Phix with an adrenaline escape from a burning hotel. There isn't any time limit though - or I didn't notice it (and I was playing quite slowly). Two cute games with a nice art follow - saving your cat by Randy Larson and a short demo of a promising adventure by Lushu as a bonus. No puzzle games in this WE, tomorrow is coming standard Weekday Puzzle.

Have a good time and enjoy!

What a beautiful game we've got from Ichima Coffeedo! It is the complete renewal of five years old Room 17 and it's very well done indeed. Two weeks ago was the game released for mobile users, and now it's available for pc users, too. It has all what a good escape should have - enjoy!

Hi! Weekday Escape and Weekday Puzzle are here!


This week we've got two standard escapes, by tomoLaSiDo and by Crayfish/MysteriousBox. The second is much longer with a big load of puzzles, but the same can be said for both - some puzzles are sneaky and to solve them, you need to look at them from different angle. Then we've got good point'n'click adventure by The Argonauts full of quirky dialogues (and trying everything on everything). After only two weeks Bart Bonte made available his latest puzzle game for pc players, too.

Have a good time and enjoy!

Rinnogogo left you astray in a small train station. All alone, you wander around not knowing what to do - you can't leave the station because there isn't any back door and the exit is barred. To open it, you need a train ticket and a box office isn't here either...it is time for solving puzzles!

Gamers are increasingly turning to virtual machines (VM) to play video games, and for good reason. Virtual machine gaming delivers better security, flexibility, and convenience. Yet, using games requiring high-end graphics can cause a deterioration in VM performance.

For some online college students, learning by playing a game sounds like a dream come true. But, in many "gamified" classrooms, the reality is closer to a clunky nightmare.
