We added a new physical distancing game to our popular app.
The new Stay-at-Home Scavenger Hunt creates social connection and emotional wellbeing as players stay-at-home and practice physical distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19.
The new game supports the recent change by the World Health Organization to the promote the practice of ‘physical distancing’ (vs. ‘social distancing’) to emphasize the need to physically – but not socially – separate from others.
SuperBetter is a resilience-building game that helps players go for epic wins in real life.
The Stay-at-Home Scavenger Hunt physical distancing game is the first of two new SuperBetter Power Packs to help players boost their resilience, mental wellbeing and social-emotional skills during the Coronavirus pandemic.
The second, now in development, is a Coronavirus Game to promote emotional, mental, social and physical resilience while following World Health Organization guidance. We recently crowdsourced ideas from the SuperBetter Community to inform the activities.
A week ago SuperBetter reported that new app downloads more than doubled and global app sessions surged 40% over the prior week.
“People around the world are feeling tremendous losses of normalcy, safety, connection and economic stability,” says Keith Wakeman, SuperBetter CEO. “Adding Power Packs and keeping the SuperBetter app this year are ways we can help right away while we work on plans for even greater impact.”
The Stay-at-Home Scavenger Hunt is a physical distancing game that increases social connection. It sparks positive emotions like curiosity, surprise and gratitude. The 2-week game challenges players to find one new thing every day without ever leaving their home. Players share their daily finds with friends, family, the SuperBetter Community, or on social media using hashtag #SuperBetterScavengerHunt.
