In this paper we analyze the design decisions of a maritime chemical incident OP and SOP training game through the Octalysis gamification framework. The goal is to understand how well the learning game manages to implement the gamified features and thus increase its engagement. We argue that even though the game is still under development and the framework is not a silver bullet in analyzing the gamified content, the design decisions made for the game seem valid and thus it motivates people to train saving lives in these dangerous incidents.
