About

Hi. My name is Andrzej Marczewski. I have been a web developer since around 2000, a slight detour from my degree in Biomedical Science! I have worked in most areas of web design, from the public sector to small businesses to large enterprises.

My true passion has always been gaming – and guitar, but gaming mostly! I was introduced to video games very young as my Dad was a fan (with is Apple II and our Acetronic MTU 1000!). This eventually lead me to starting Yet Another Review Site as a way to talk about games, review them and encourage others to do the same.

In about 2011, this passion lead to me discovering Gamification and becoming fascinated with the possibilities it had. Merging my love of games and developer mind with my business and enterprise background, it was the perfect fit. Since then I have written about gamification every week on this blog, written the book Even Ninja Monkeys Like to Play and done talks in the UK and abroad.

I feel privileged to now be considered as a gamification thought leader and expert.

If you want to have a chat, you can hit me up on Twitter @daverage.

If you have any business related questions for me about consultancy, gamification design, engagement design or anything else, you can get me at andrzej@gamified.uk

  1. I’m a student from UW Stout writing a research paper on the ethical dilemma “Should stock trading apps be allowed to use exploitative practices to induce gambling in their users” and I stumbled across your “The ethics of gamification” article and saw that you wrote a textbook for UW Stout. Anyway thought it was cool, thx
