Sea Hero Quest – the mobile game that is fighting back against the monster of dementia

Sea Hero Quest 2

As we get older, we sometimes start to lose parts of ourselves. Our minds start to just sort of go. It is sad and tragic for everyone involved but science is trying to fight the deterioration of dementia and we can all help! Download Sea Hero Quest, the mobile game that is crowdsourcing research for dementia.

This is a mobile game about finding memories but it’s also a way to collect data focused on how people figure out how to get around. One of the first issues that people who have dementia begin to experience is getting lost or not being able to find their way around. That’s where you come in.

By playing this game, it records how you find your way around and sends that information to the researchers which helps them compile a database. This is one of many science projects using the crowd sourced data but this has the added bonus of being a really nice game with a sweet story attached. It’s free for both Android and Apple devices. Download it and help science!

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
