Graphics and visuals - making a GAME
I signed up immediately after watching the TED Talk by SuperBetter's creator. The idea is great, but I couldn't help feeling a little disappointed at the lack of "game" to accompany the program. I would love to be able to create my "world" and design my avatar and WATCH her progress thru quests and battle bad guys, as I go thru them in real life. I think a video/visual element would be a wonderful next step for SuperBetter. Thanks for putting the work in to make this program in the first place - it really is a great idea!
In general more gamification is needed to keep up playing it and therefore getting Superbetter.
Rankings wouldn't be bad either. Could be optional / payable. But winning in life takes a while and this game could provide some small treats for small progress. Keeps people going and playing.
Definitely huge potential.
Absolutely. This is exactly what would make the game truly FUN. As it is now it feels more like a To Do list. Where's my Avatar? Where's her quest? Where are the bad guys? It's all in my head and that's not nearly as fun as making it like a REAL game. The character should move through places as she takes on each Quest (each quest associated with a different place) - and meet her bad guys, power ups, and even some rewards along the way! Superbetter needs worlds and avatars. We need a real game. The skeleton is there - hope you flesh it out because this game could help so many people.
