LifeGuard Games has just launched their first app, Wellapets, in beta! Wellapets teaches asthma management to kids age 6-11 through a little fire-breathing dragon who wants to blow fire like its friends but can't because it has asthma. It's up to kids to care for the dragon in much the same way they care for themselves, ultimately teaching their pet to blow fire, unlocking new rooms and minigames. Our game is somewhat similar to Club Penguin or Moshi Monsters, and will be for all iOS and Android phones and tablets. Finally, our design features input from pediatric asthma specialist physicians in Boston.
We currently seek beta testers to try a prototype of our game on their tablets or phones and provide feedback. To sign up, go to: http://tflig.ht/15MjeM6 then, visit www.testflightapp.com from your mobile device and you'll be set for when our beta is posted early in January.
Please send any questions or comments to co-founder Alex Ryu at firstname.lastname@example.org View Thread
LifeGuard Games is developing an app to help kids manage their asthma. We're interested in learning how we can best serve the needs of asthmatic kids, and their parents' concerns. Your feedback would be instrumental in helping to develop our app.
If you're a parent of an asthmatic child, we'd love to hear from you. We'd love if you completed this simple, 5-minute survey (link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TZBHP29 ). Doing so enters you in a drawing to receive a $50 gift card from Amazon. You'll be asked for your email at the end of the survey.
I'm currently working to develop an educational game to help kids manage their asthma. Specifically, we create virtual pets for phones and tablets in which the pet also has asthma. We've designed our pet to teach and motivate proper management actions.
We're interested in connecting with you and learning more about the challenges you face, and specifically how our app could be useful to you. Your feedback will directly inform our design.
Is there any interest in discussing this or connecting offline? Any thoughts on or experiences using these educational games?
