Quantic Foundry Apps
The Quantic Foundry Apps are a set of gamer profiles and tools based on a survey project run by long-time game researchers Nick Yee & Nicolas Ducheneaut. We combine social science and data science to understand the psychology of gaming. Take the Gamer Motivation Profile or the Board Games Motivation Profile to get a customized report of your gaming motivations. We’ll keep adding new gamer tools to this page, and don’t forget to check out the blog for new findings.
