Games for Health
What we do
BioCentric Games combines medical science and gamification to create games that improve health.
Your Journey to Better Health
WellQuest™ is a serious health game being developed through support from the CDC to help National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) lifestyle change program participants stay engaged, informed, and active throughout their health/wellness journey.
Designing games for learning or behavior change shares many of the same ingredients found in traditional game development. “Fun” can be difficult to quantify, but fun games can measurably improve user engagement and knowledge retention.
Our designers and collaborators bring deep creative expertise, which lends our games more than just a hint of fun. This isn’t chocolate-covered broccoli!
One of the ways that gamification delivers benefits is it taps into intrinsic human motivations: internal desires we all share to achieve, socialize, tell stories, compete, or master challenging tasks.
Games for health and wellness must still find the right combination of player motivations but also connect them to other real-world behaviors and objectives.
Games for Everyone
Digital games – think consoles, computers, phones, and other handhelds – have been on the scene for nearly 40 years. Over time, the gaming audience has steadily diversified across genders; gaming is now a lifelong activity. It’s now possible to create games and interactive experiences for nearly any group of people.
