SuperBetter helps you achieve your health goals — or recover from an illness or injury — by increasing your personal resilience. Resilience means staying curious, optimistic and motivated even in the face of the toughest challenges.

The creators of the game, SuperBetter Labs, applies technology and design to empower individuals and communities to lead “epic lives.” The lab focuses on creating games that are powered by strong social relationships, positive emotion, and a real sense of purpose. By bringing together science and wisdom with innovative technology and design, SuperBetter Labs explores how we can flourish best and achieve our full human potential — individually, and collectively.

SuperBetter, is an online social game designed to build personal resilience in the face of a serious challenge — like an illness or injury, anxiety or depression. SuperBetter can also be used to make a major health change, like losing weight, quitting smoking, or eating better. Players are challenged to build up their core strengths of physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being.

By creating a fully customizable experience backed up by strong scientific principles, SuperBetter allows any player to gain an experience and chase “epic wins”. Players are encouraged to find their “power ups”, small activities that boost their personal well-being while fighting off “bad guys”, activities and emotions that bring them down. In addition, various goal setting challenges and the ability to draw friends in, allows SuperBetter to create an engaging gaming experience with scientific data that is proven to encourage happiness and personal growth.

    Superbetter appears to be a fun-loving self-help program and dot com venture. Superbetter’s program contains a lot of enthusiasm, encouragement, and claims of science basis. From what I’ve seen, it’s very easy to implement their recommendations. Curiously, one of the team’s executives is Koru Bean, a dog: See at bottom.

    Superbetter is a great idea, somewhat awkwardly realized. I have only participated from the role of Ally, and my Hero is finding the game very helpful, so I will continue to play. However, there is very little guidance for Allies on how to navigate the actual interface, and the Ally screen is not at all intuitive. However, with experimentation, that can all be overcome. The absolute worst aspect of this game, though, is that when I try to award an achievement for my hero, or create a quest for her, the game crashes. Not hard; I get a screen that says "We’re better making Superbetter better for you! Snap your fingers exactly 50 times!" I reload, and my quest or achievement has disappeared, so I type it all out again (I have learned to copy it into the buffer by this time), hit the button and get the same error message. Over and over. This happens more often than a successful attempt does, and it’s enormously frustrating. I find that I don’t check in nearly as often as I’d like to because just thinking about getting on this merry-go-round again is disheartening.

    My friend likes it, and is finding it helpful. I will continue to be her Ally. But please! Fix it so that we can do what we came to do without having to try multiple times!
