My library (Oakland Public) is currently working with the Cherry Hill Company on a grant-funded project to develop something more or less along these lines, to be called Play@YourLibrary.  It will be Drupal-based and open source, but it’s not ready yet – we’ll be using it here for the first time in summer 2016 for our children’s, teen and adult summer programs.  We’re not calling it a gamification platform, but it will be designed to offer badges and to offer and track physical rewards.
