Trail of Candy and Resuce the Princess

This morning I read Stefano‘s blog post, The “Trail of Candy” design pattern. It’s a great post, as usual on his blog. You should read it…

… welcome back 😉 Stefano’s post reminded me of an earlier blog article, from 2008, about “Rescue the Princess” as a product design pattern. This is over on Danc‘s Lost Garden blog. You should read that too…
The issue I often struggle with is how to implement this kind of pattern, which I think is awesome, with a business audience. HubSpot, where I work now, is mostly a B2B company. We sell to other small and medium businesses. They are very results-oriented, and I’m not sure how they’ll put up with a gaming metaphor.
I don’t have an answer. All ideas are welcome…
