Visualizing Real World Businesses to be Played like Video Games

I've primarily been looking into simulation games like: civilization, simcity, and other video games where you get richer as you play. I've come across a few games like Robert Kiyosaki's CASHFLOW board game, but I have not yet looked into business school games. 

 

My underlying hypothesis is that video game players are really good at getting rich in video-games. Therefore, if you could build and run an actual business, like its a video game, then perhaps doing business could be more fun, more visual, and easier to win.

 

I've come across a lot of research about using gamification to reward workers with badges, promotions and prizes. But i've yet to see anyone approach a business as if they were programming a video game, using key players, game logic and sexier interfaces.

 

As an example, apps like Uber & Lyft are technically real world video games. There's 3 types of players. You have riders, drivers, and staff. Each have different screens and each play the game differently. But together, they make up a multi-player experience. In particular, the drivers and staff play the game with specific strategies and earn rewards in the form of money (which today is just numbers or points in a banking app).  These are billion dollar companies that run like video games, and they don't even know it. 

 

Interestingly enough, most businesses use the same building blocks with similar player types and similar strategies. The only real difference is the variables that make each business unique.

 

As a simple example, a web design agency could be built tomorrow by stacking together software like quickbooks, salesforce, adobe creative suite & Skype. From there, you'd put a qualified worker in front of each program, generate some templates & processes, and give them each the time to do their job. As an organized organization, their goal is to collectively earn points by calling companies, selling them websites, building them sites and repeating the process over and over again. As long as they spend less than they earn, they will have a winning formula.

 

Obviously there's more to it than that, but software is making business more logic-oriented than it's ever been in the past. 

 

By creating a visual map of a company, the business owner and decision makers can work on their business from the outside in. They could literally approach it like they're programming a game, then put the right software modules, players, processes, and strategies together to constantly generate wins in excess of losses.

 

My question to you is, as a serial entrepreneur, would it have been useful for you to think of your businesses as games? do you think visual maps would have been more useful than org charts? Do you think business systems and processes would be followed better if the employees thought if it as a fun game rather than boring work? And lastly, wouldn't it be cool to sell a company by handing over a manual that says, here's the pieces of the puzzle, here's how they fit together, and here's your control panel?

 

In closing, Virtual Reality is now relatively easy to program. While most people are building entertainment experiences, i've been discovering how to use VR to quickly create and manage real world businesses. 

 

The efficiency gap between companies that use computers and those that do not is pretty big. But the efficiency gap between companies who use 3D computing and companies who use 2D computing is going to be way bigger. 

 

To tie everything together, the majority of 3D programming is happening inside of game engines like unreal and unity. This alone proves to me that Video Game Logic & Visualization should be the way of the future for business & software programing as a whole. 

 

In closing, my assumption is that even without 3D software, businesses can be represented like a hand drawn board game. And, those visual maps should be extremely useful for creating and implementing systems and processes across an entire company.

Work Sustains Technology... Not Entertainment

The Reason 3DTV had a big rise and quick fall is because its use never went beyond Entertainment. 

 

3D Video, 3D Games & 3D Porn may have gotten the technology going... But its only value is entertainment. And entertainment alone is not enough of a reason for a technology to stick around. 

 

If you can do "work" on your 3D display, then it becomes an "asset". 

 

3DTV Failed because no-one made Microsoft Office in 3D or a web-browser in 3D, or a way to make money using your 3D Display. 

 

As pessimists, we often think that people are driven by laziness. Well, I believe the death of 3DTV contradicts that point.   Lazy Entertainment alone was not enough to sustain the 3DTV Industry.   3DTVs would only be around today if they aided in our ability to be productive, get shit done, and make more money. 

 

 

So, The same is going to be true for VR.  If all we do is make VR Entertainment, then it will rise and fall.  But, if we are able to do real work in VR, then it will rise to exponential heights above the success of the personal computer industry. 

 

The personal computer took over the world because it allowed people to do more work and make more money... Yes you could play games, yes you could listen to music. But no, entertainment was not the sustaining factor. 

 

Arguably, the early adopters that had calculators could perform 10x better than those that only had pen and paper. Then, the early adopters who got computers could perform 100x better than those with calculators. And finally, the early adopters who do their work in 3D/VR should perform 1000x better than those with 2D Computers. 

 

I believe the early adopters like me who can build and utilize "Office and Productivity environments" in VR will perform 1000x more "efficient" and on a greater scale in comparison to those who have 2 monitors on their desk. 

 

In VR, we are not limited to time and costs of building a super office. In VR, you can build the most high-tech office the world has ever seen. And you can duplicate as many times as you want for FREE. 

 

Your new VR office is at least 1000x cooler than your Home Office, it's at least 1000x cheaper to build, and its at least 1000x more efficient. 

 

 

So in closing, ENTERTAINMENT DOES NOT MATTER. The ability for individuals to GET MORE WORK DONE AND MAKE MORE MONEY is the #1 factor in the potential success of this rising technology.

Next-Gen 360 Degree Gaming

Introducing "Next-Gen 360 Degree Gaming" by Justin Massion 

Welcome to the future of gaming (with Gamecan's 1st Game Overstep) 

 

It's 2015! GameCan is new & nimble... Which means we're starting with a brand new untapped, and unrestrained structure for the next great Game Company. 

 

"Next-Gen 360 Degree Gaming" stands for "Next Generation 360 Games" 

By taking a 360 approach to each aspect of the gaming market, we can establish a new marketplace for a new type of gaming experience that transcends platforms and introduces a new standard in game development which we can be the 1st to Market leaders. 

 

The combination of Unity, Journey Builder (marketing), Next Gen Platforms (PS4 & Xbox One), along with VR, Mobiles & Wearable technologies... Retail experiences, Tournaments, Merchandising, and Social Sharing... Opens up a new trend in the gaming market which we can introduce and lead in a VERY BIG WAY! 

 

The best part is... Everything I'm talking about is extremely do-able, affordable, and reasonable for us to accomplish. Yet, this new opportunity is completely unique to our capabilities and provides us with a major competitive advantage.  

 

As proven by Kickstarter & the Crowdfuning world, it's more than clear that our audience is seeking these next gen innovations and experiences in a way that is only barely being touched upon by the existing, highly established game companies. 

 

In fact, companies like Occulus Rift, Roberts Space Industry (Star Citizen), League of Legends and Virtuix are perfect examples of the Market's want, need, requests, expectations, loyalty and unbelievably fast rates of adoption. 

 

Imagine this:  

Overstep is a game perfectly poised to change the market forever. Not only does Overstep stand in the uncluttered market of Next-Gen, Free-to-Pay, Not-Play-to-Win games... It also introduces the highest level of "Physically Based Rendering" (on the Indie side, AAA is good at it, just different methodology) and a new use of "gravity" across multiple platforms.  

AND... 

Overstep will also introduce "Next-Gen 360 Degree Gaming" to the world.  

 

So, What does that look like?  

From customer acquisition channels like Facebook ads, Social Media, Affiliate Networks, and App Store Optimization... to Multiple points of entry using multiple game platforms like Mobile, Wearable (watch), PC & Consoles... to Retail Virtual Reality experiencewhere customers at malls and other high-traffic locations can literally step into the game and play against each other both locally and across the world...  to major events like tournaments... The customer Journey becomes uniquely fluid, trackable and dynamic... Making Overstep the 1st of it's kind to be fully integrated into every aspect of their technological lifestyle.  

 

And once again, this is entirely affordable, capable and relatively quick to develop and deploy. 

 

By expanding upon, partnerships with companies like Unity, Microsoft, Facebook, Google,Apple, Steam, Occulus, Virtuix, Sales Force (Journey Builder), and Westfield, we can deploy quicker than ever! 

 

Unity allows us to build once and distribute to nearly all platforms. Journey Builder allows us to track every move a player makes, and intelligently respond with dynamic offers and enhanced experiences. Facebook connects us directly to any target market we choose (including, but not limited to our own). Microsoft is putting us directly in front of their entire Xbox One Community. And placing Virtual Reality experiences in high traffic locations like Westfield malls is surprisingly affordable for the 1st time. Even merchandising is at a whole new level of affordability and distribution thanks to 3D Printing & on-demand manufacturing.  

 

At GameCan, we are literally and truly ready to go-to-market with "Next-Gen 360 Degree Gaming". And OVERSTEP is the game to do it with! 

 

Development in 2015 and beyond.  

Dev Equipment and Software is highly affordable, and access to talent, marketing and business development is entirely global. We literally have the world at our fingertips.

Here's what i've been actually building

Hey Pop, 

 

Check this out. This is what i've been working on with Max. 

www.CapitalResearcher.com

 

We've been generating a database of hundreds of thousands of Investors and entrepreneurs. This week we'll be finished with our 1st complete database with over 27,000 investor profiles. Every contact includes names, emails, phone, social profiles, funding criteria, and more. With the push of a button i can literally email thousands of investors an offer without getting in spam. We can also sort by criteria, and market specific offers to specific people based on the data we have about them. We can also place internet ads only in front of the people we know are our strongest leads. It's unbelievable how cost-effective and efficient we can advertise and market now that it's 2015. 

 

We also are getting the entire company setup for full automation with extremely minimal overhead. As an example, this week we paid $27 for 47 hours of work with a virtual assistant. And she's very good. I also just got my mom a full time assistant who specializes in real estate for $3/hr. 

 

This year is the 1st year that technology is good enough for me to actually pull this stuff off. I can write very simple algorithms and flow charts that can be automated almost immediately. And, I can control the entire thing from a texting program called slack. 

 

Here's a couple testimonials I had made for Capital Researcher at about $10 each.

I'm excited to show you some of the tools i've been using to automate entire business processes. As I mentioned before, I actually came up with a new type of programming language for getting things done on a global scale.  I call it "Assembly Line Language" or "ALL" 


In essence, the key is to build digital pipelines and integrate better communications and processes for any business model. It sounds a bit out there, but its actually pretty simple and straightforward. I think "Laying Digital Pipe" can be the 2015 equivalent to building railroads in the industrial revolution. Instead of laying down track, we can draw flow-charts in a program called mind meister. And with a bit of instructions, we can fully automate those flows in record time. 

 

The cost of building "digital pipe" is incredibly cheap. In fact, I wrote an algorithm that uses the power of compounding to start various types of business models with only $100-$1000 and grow the business exponentially using net instead of debt. 

 

You say in a lot of ways i'm you, and in a lot of ways you're grandpa. Well, Grandpa had a calculator. You had a slow moving desktop PC, and I have a workstation that can run processes around the globe.  Imagine what grandpa could have done if he was using the technology i have available to me today. 

 

In fact, here is an example of my tool box, https://mm.tt/470060907?t=LKmdRPojlY . With only a few weeks of work, i can turn this flow chart into an automated system that i can fully automate through text or voice. It would probably cost under $500/mo. to run this system. And obviously, the ROI can be very very promising.  


Create your own mind maps at MindMeister


Each one of these apps can be fully automated from a text message using the Assembly Line Language i mentioned. 


I have the Assembly Line Language designed in a way where you dont need to know code. If you do know code, you can get things done a bit faster. But if you dont, you can speak plain english and the system will understand your instructions. 


You can also teach the system your own coding language, and it will give you suggestions as well. For instance, if you say "make Justin equal to J", Now you can save 5 letters every time you mention my name.  Alternatively, the system might say to you, "Jamie, we could do emails better together if you say @Name followed by the message you want to send. Would you like me to show you some examples?" .   In this case, you are learning the system and the system is learning you. Within a few weeks, you'll have developed your own symbiotic language between you and your computer. 


This gets really impressive as you start using characters or "avatars" to help you visualize different aspects of the system. By visualizing and adding character to different aspects of the system, we can make exponentially stronger neural connections in the human brain. 


https://justinmassion.squarespace.com/blog/category/all-the-assembly-line-language


All of this can be as simple as writing a text message, or talking to a better version of Siri called "Dragon". 



I suppose i'll cut off the email here to keep it short.


Love you,
J
