MindHabits.png This single-player serious game in 2D offers four different types of game which represent 100 game levels in all: Matrix, Words, Grow your Chi and Who are you? Gameplay is based on the principles of social intelligence:
Inhibition: using a gaming process to help the player adopt a positive attitude;
Association: associating personal information with a positive self-image;
Activation: creating a more positive state of mind.
MindHabits includes measurement tools so users can track their progress over time.
The President of the firm MindHabits, Mark Baldwin is a professor of psychology at McGill University. It is his research on social intelligence that served as the basis for the game’s design.
