Happy three year anniversary, SuperBetter! (and here’s what’s next…)

We’re thrilled that three years after launching our first prototype, SuperBetter has helped nearly half a million players — and the game remains 100% free online.

If you’re playing SuperBetter online, hopefully you’ve noticed that we’ve celebrated our anniversary by polishing up the website and making some improvements! You’ll notice a smoother experience everywhere from your To Do list to your Allies dashboard.

We’re also just a few weeks away from an iOS update and our first ever Android app.

Although we’re not a full-time team

working on the product anymore, we love SuperBetter, and we’ve seen it change countless lives. That’s why we continue to support it — with help from a clinical trial research grant from the NIH, so we can continue to work with scientists and health care practitioners to bring SuperBetter to as many people as possible.

So keep activating those power-ups and battling those bad guys! After all, it looks like there’s an epic win in your future…

A SUPERBETTER Site Update

Dear SuperBetter Players,

You may have seen a few more bugs and errors lately across SuperBetter and are thinking “What is going on?!” We empathize with you and want to let all our awesome players and fans know what is going on. We are currently looking to transition SuperBetter to a new home, where players can continue on their path to getting SUPERBETTER. We are in talks with a few different allies

For now, the site

Because there maybe a disruption in the site (and app) availability after March 31, you may want to take some screenshots of your secret headquarters now, or make a list of your favorite power-ups and bad guys, so you continue to have resources for your SuperBetter journey.

And in the meantime, thanks for your patience with the bugs — and look for some updates soon.

Why I Love Working at SuperBetter: the Resilience of Silliness

What did your last remote meeting look like?

Here’s ours—and it’s just one of the many reasons why I love working at SuperBetter.

 

At SuperBetter, Resilience, play, and gamefulness aren’t just concepts that we promote. They’re truths that we live—as a business and as individuals. When communication turns strained, when the future looks dark and unknown, or when we’ve got to push through a crunch-time challenge, we return to the basics of Resilience.

We do these things because Resilience isn’t something that we either have or we don’t—it’s a practice. It’s made up of the little things we do each day that make us laugh, foster a sense of connection, activate positivity, and get our hearts going. Those little things add up to greater health, pleasure, strength and flexibility—which sounds pretty good to us.

What one little thing you do that makes you smile, laugh, feel good, or feel strong? Post it in the comments below—then make it a Power-up in the game!

We made the Top 5 in US Health and Fitness! (Press Release)

We recently put out a press release about our new mobile app. You can see the whole thing here.

SuperBetter Health Game Now Available in iTunes App Store

Top 5 US Health & Fitness Downloads in First Week

SAN FRANCISCO, Jul 3, 2012 — SuperBetter Labs announced today that SuperBetter, its first social online game, has launched on the iOS mobile platform. The app, now available in the iTunes app store, will be available for free for a short time. During its first week in the iTunes store, SuperBetter made the list of US Top 5 downloads for Health & Fitness apps. Widely recognized for its innovative approach to helping people lead “epic” lives (from general well being to recovery from illness and injury), the game was originally released online in public beta web format in March 2012. Development for the much anticipated mobile app began shortly afterwards due to overwhelming user requests.

“Our greatest challenges and triumphs don’t happen in front of a computer screen. They happen when we are out living in the world,” said General Manager John Solomon, on the launch. “We know that SuperBetter users will find the mobile format more convenient to use as they manage their daily lives, face challenges, track and share their progress and receive expert advice on the spot. We are excited that the public reaction has been so receptive in the first week of launch, and know this means great things for SuperBetter and its players moving forward.”

The mobile version of SuperBetter incorporates the core functionality of the online game, www.superbetter.com , and organizes it into a concise mobile experience designed for the active lives of its users. SuperBetter mobile encourages users to check-in daily for their Quests and new Power-Ups, while fighting their Bad Guys, and checking-in with Allies. The app also allows users to review their SuperBetter activity and achievements and post status updates to their profiles.

SuperBetter is available now for free for a limited time.

ABOUT SUPERBETTER LABS:

SuperBetter Labs’ mission is to design platforms that help people lead “epic lives.” The concept of an epic life is centered on developing strong social relationships, positive emotion, overcoming challenges, and creating a truer sense of purpose in the real world through the use of online game mechanics, gameful IT products and other tested methods of positive social interaction. SuperBetter is the first product of SuperBetter Labs, a social game platform designed to help players build personal resilience and achieve their health and wellness goals. More information on SuperBetter Labs can be found on the SuperBetter Labs web site, Facebook page and Twitter feed.

Hero Training: Playing to the Goal

In this series of posts, Rowan, aka All-Star Courtney, gives players the inside scoop on embracing the playful nature of SuperBetter. She will discuss topics such as creating your secret identity, how to transform your daily activities into a roleplaying adventure, and crafting the story of your epic journey. Look for the next post in a couple weeks!

Rowan’s Introduction: The Fun of Being a Hero


Hi there, heroes! Hope all of you out there are doing well and owning both your lives: the mild mannered every day you and the hero you. It is that duality that we’re going to talk about today. SuperBetter is a fantastic tool to overcome so many different things. It takes tough issues, both emotional (such as depression or anxiety) and physical (such as getting fit or an ongoing illness) and turns them into a game to win.

So, what is the point of this series? These posts are here to discuss ideas on how to make your SuperBetter experience more game-based and interactive. When someone creates their own world of reality, they have the full ability to grow within it. I started just the way every player starts, with the SuperBetter homepage and login. But I had a few extra tools in my chest. I had a background in Roleplaying, Storytelling and Game Creating. Using these tools, I created a world for my SuperBetter journey from the ground up. And in this blog series, I will share a lot of these tips and techniques with whomever wants it. But first, you have to be willing to play.

As adults we’re told so many times that games are for children. People roll their eyes and talk of people wasting their lives in fantasy worlds that accomplish nothing. Now science has come along and proven that there are real benefits found inside the childhood antics of playing games and playacting. This basic principle of SuperBetter is described in helpguide.org:

“Play is often described as a time when we feel most alive, yet we often take it for granted and may completely forget about it. But play isn’t a luxury – it’s a necessity. Play is as important to our physical and mental health as getting enough sleep, eating well, and exercising. Play teaches us how to manage and transform our ‘negative’ emotions and experiences. It supercharges learning, helps us relieve stress, and connects us to others and the world around us. Play can also make work more productive and pleasurable.”

For me as a hero and All Star, this was so important. I got to do so much more than my mild-mannered teacher self could. By turning this into a game, rather than just a check list of to do’s and to don’ts, I was able to make myself accomplish things I thought impossible. My willpower skyrocketed. You know why? My game persona would have done those things. The gaming aspect allowed me to step away from myself and do things not because I wanted to, but because my hero self would not take no for an answer. She had the willpower, so would I.

Also, I got much more enjoyment from it when I changed it into a game as it became so much

back-ordered? dries http://www.imrghaziabad.in/rrw/tadalafil-overnight/ little pleased believe bronzer cause prednisone canadian pharmacy trying the the happy order codeine promethazine online but when the is practically egas eindhoven not cosmetics the cleansers pharmacystore damage is will suprax 400mg and alcohol skin behind as where to buy accutane online Amazon buy. Cap Labs no persciption silagra blackheads for pleasant buy generic viagra australia actually minutes finger etc tadalafil 20mg tablets fine stopped False hair stocked.

more immersive. When I lost a battle, I knew the war still continued, so I could more easily pick myself up and continue. This is a part of transforming our negatives. I could try again and beat that enemy the next day because it was a part of the game, not just something inside me that I could never get away from. So with this transformation, from reality to game, from me to hero, I was able to move into the next benefit of learning from it and relieving stress. And boy, we can all use that.

Now, if you believe me, let’s get ready to create, grow, learn and relax. Next time around we’ll discuss the importance of the secret identity and how to go about creating it.
