Sea Hero Quest game helps in the fight against dementia

GLITCHERS:

“It’s not just a game, it’s a quest to help scientists fight dementia!”

It sounds too good to be true but this really is a game, where simply by having loads of fun chasing creatures around magical seas and swamps, you can help to fight a disease that currently affects 45 million people worldwide.

In fact playing SEA HERO QUEST for just 2 minutes will generate the equivalent of 5 hours of lab-based research data.

I’ve played the first couple of levels of the game and it seems pretty simplistic. If it weren’t for the research goals behind it, I don’t think I’d actually play it through to the end but it’s for a great cause so I’ll definitely play a few rounds each day.

    A little more info:

    One of the first symptoms of dementia is loss of navigational skills. Doctors cannot differentiate between getting lost caused by disease and getting lost caused by natural ageing because a benchmark of “normal” does not exist.

    Until now … because as you play, your navigational data is tracked anonymously, stored securely and combined with every other player from around the globe, to create the world’s largest crowd sourced data set benchmarking human spatial navigation. This incredible resource will eventually lead to the development of new diagnosis tools and treatments for dementia.

    Their website for the game: https://glitchers.com/project/sea-hero-quest-vr/

    They have other games too. I’ll have to check them out and see if they are researched based as well.

    What helps even more in fighting dementia is ditching the high-sugar/high-carbohydrate western diet.
