“The Adventure begins - HEROES”
You are stronger than you know.
You are surrounded by potential allies.
You will soon conquer a great challenge.
You are a Hero to others.
An epic win is in your future.
I’m Jane McGonigal, the inventor of SuperBetter.
This game is designed to make you stronger -- physically, mentally, emotionally and socially -- so that you can better tackle whatever real-life personal challenge you might be facing.
If you’ve got a health goal like losing weight, reducing stress, or getting in shape, SuperBetter can supercharge your will power, stamina, social support and motivation.
If you’re dealing with an injury or an illness, SuperBetter can help you face it head on with more optimism, courage, curiosity and determination.
Or maybe -- you just want to get stronger. You can play SuperBetter for that too.
So how does it work?
We’ll guide you though a series of Quests based on breakthrough findings in the fields of neuroscience, positive emotion, and medicine. As you advance in the game, you’ll discover strengths you didn’t know you had -- and learn skills that can help you achieve your real-life goals.
You’ll figure out what makes you stronger, and what stands in the way of the goals you choose for yourself. You’ll get help prioritizing what you can do, every day, to get SuperBetter.
You can play on your own -- but SuperBetter works best when you invite friends and family to play with you, and be your Ally in the game.
I know what it means to get SuperBetter, because when I was facing the toughest challenge of my life -- a concussion that didn’t heal properly -- this game is what saved me. I was in a lot of physical pain. I was anxious and depressed. It was hard to explain to friends and family what I was going through. I didn’t know if my brain would ever heal -- or if I would ever get back to normal.
So I invented this game. It seems like a crazy thing to do -- to make a game to get better. But I used everything I’d learned in my ten year’s experience as a game designer, everything I knew about provoking positive emotion, strengthening social connections, and building up players’ ability to tackle tougher and tougher challenges without giving up. I used all of that to turn my recovery into a game.
The more I played this new game, the happier, and more confident, and more determined I felt. As my brain healed, I also started to see myself differently. I felt more capable. I felt like I had survived a trip to the underworld and come back a stronger version of myself.
In other words, I didn’t just get better. I got SuperBetter.
