Get started with SCILL

SCILL gives you the tools to activate, retain and grow your user base in your app or game by bringing you features well known in the gaming industry: Gamification. We take care of the services and technology involved so you can focus on your game and content.

The source of (user) action is motivation. Having an app that solves a daily need is enough to motivate users to launch the app and to use it. However, everyone is facing constant distractions and offerings on how to spend their time. So it’s important to keep your users in the loop of being constantly motivated and wanting to launch your app or game. One way of doing that, and the gaming industry has done that for a long time very successfully, is by offering challenges and rewards.

However, while the concept of giving the users challenges and rewarding them for successful completion is easy, building and maintaining it, is not so easy. You need to gather a lot of data and process it in real time. Next, you need to trigger your users at the right time. All of this is easier said than done.

This is where SCILL comes into play: If you follow this guide you will have integrated basic challenges into your app or application production ready in a couple of hours.

SCILL currently supports challenges, battle passes, and leaderboards, all of which are driven by events you send to us.

Tip

Testing SCILL does not require any coding. Using our Admin Panel you can build challenges and battle passes in minutes. Use our Playground application to simulate events, see your challenges and battle passes come to life. If you like it, add our SDK and in case of Unity you’ll have a battle pass running after dropping two prefabs in your scene.

Create an app

The core organizational unit in SCILL is an application.

Create an app in our Admin Panel:

You need an API key to securely communicate with the SCILL backend. Keep your API key hidden and private; do not expose it in the browser.
