The SuperBetter team is developing two new Power Packs in response to the Coronavirus Pandemic. The first – to be introduced next week – is a Physical Distancing Game to increase social connection while practicing physical distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19. The second is the Coronavirus Game discussed in this post.
Navigating the realities of life during a pandemic is new to all of us. We need your help to adapt the SuperBetter game to help people thrive during the Coronavirus pandemic.
At SuperBetter we are grateful to be part of an amazing community willing to collaborate on big epic wins. This one is really big.
We want to turn SuperBetter into a Coronavirus game that helps people and communities around the world successfully managing the stress, disruption and uncertainty associated with COVID-19 while supporting public health strategies to inhibit its spread.
To support this epic win, we are creating a new Coronavirus Power Pack for the SuperBetter game. The Power Pack will have Power-ups to activate, Bad Guys to battle and Quests to complete.
The Power Pack activities will help players build mental, emotional, social and physical resilience as they follow World Health Organization and CDC Coronavirus guidelines. The Power Pack will be available for free in the SuperBetter apps and website.
You can help by reflecting on the challenges you anticipate due to Coronavirus and what is working for you right now. Think like a gamer and turn your ideas into Power-ups, Bad Guys and Quests. Have fun with it and don’t worry about making your ideas perfect.
Back at SuperBetter HQ we will use the ideas to inform the creation of an evidence-based Power Pack for the SuperBetter game.
The SuperBetter game is backed by science. Published studies show that playing SuperBetter increases the seven mental, emotional and social measures scientifically linked to higher resilience. Meta-analyses show SuperBetter to be among the most effective mobile apps on the market for reducing anxiety. Nearly a million people have played SuperBetter so far. Its popularity, strong science and gameful approach makes SuperBetter a promising solution to help people around the world thrive during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Thank you in advance for being an ally in this epic win of global magnitude!
