By building on its game catalog foundation, and integrating blockchain, virtual reality, artificial intelligence and machine learning, online games and interactive applications can facilitate personal discovery, enhance decision-making, and enable positive behavior change.
“Since Sigma Resources acquired Simcoach Games in 2020, we have been pleased with the demand for gamified learning in a range of sectors, especially healthcare, education and training,” says Brian Kaleida, Simcoach CEO and President at Sigma Resources. “To meet this demand, we structured key game production steps, such as game design, technology platform, and instructional design, to function within a studio framework.” Mr. Kaleida continues, “Simcoach’s studio operations, featuring rapid prototyping, pilots and distribution, give clients and partners a range of development options to speed the production of Simcoach’s games.”
Services through Simcoach’s studio operations are structured so business enterprises, healthcare organizations, government agencies and academic institutions can efficiently and cost-effectively develop and provide Games-as-Media experiences. Studio services and terms offered to clients, partners, producers will be determined by Simcoach on a case-by-case basis and will be made at Simcoach’s discretion.
“We also see studio operations and rapid prototyping as an ideal development environment for Games-as-Media applications and early-stage metaverse experiences,” adds John Lucke, Simcoach Chief Growth Officer. “We have seen how online gaming, especially the dynamic content based on decision-making and behavior, can complement an array of media and marketing strategies. When combined with advanced technologies resident in our studio, we see Games-as-Media applications powering more enjoyable and engaging media experiences that delivers better outcomes for all stakeholders.”
