The story of GamiPress

In late 2016, when Ruben was first beginning to build several marketplaces and communities, he needed a gamification plugin well integrated with WordPress, was simple though sufficiently powerful, providing modern and reliable features and integrated with the others website plugins. After several months testing existing options, Ruben concluded it was clear that none of the current gamification plugins provided what he wanted. With that, he set out to build his own, which quickly became GamiPress.

GamiPress was designed to provide a complete and flexible gamification system that gave site administrators a clean, simple way to build the gamification strategy they want. GamiPress does aim to provide all of the fundamentals and much more in a clear, concise, and easy to use way.

Today, GamiPress has grown far beyond its humble beginnings and now connects with more than 30 WordPress plugins to bring the maximum flexibility for the gamification strategy of any WordPress website.
