Applying Animated Parables to Gamification in Daily Context: An Expert Evaluation Study

Abstract

Latest studies regarding gamification for behavior change have suggested using meaningful stories for long-term effects. Drawing on psychological studies related to narrative transportation and mental simulation, this paper extends the idea of animated parables and argues that selecting stories to frame gamified systems should consider perceived causality between the real-life action and the simulated diegetic effect. This study employs expert evaluation on a collection of parables regarding perceived usefulness, novelty, and perceived causality. Results show that parables consensually rated by experts as both useful and novel are also prominent in perceived causality, which supports the argument that perceived causality underpins perceived persuasiveness of parables.
