This capstone thesis documents the production of the UAA Spirit Quest prototype for the Spring semester of 2016. The UAA Spirit Quest prototype aims to deliver a proof of concept web application build with a combination of database and web technologies such as MySQL, PHP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript that will utilize the technique of gamification to motivate new students to familiarize themselves with campus resources that will aid in their college careers at UAA. The findings are that it takes relatively little internal logic to accomplish what is needed to create a web application in the style of a simple game, and what differentiates a “real” game and a college tool utilizing gamification, for the most part, is the narrative.
