Beta Testers Needed for SinaSprite Mobile Serious Game

Mobile Serious Games for gaming a better health 

Following my prior post SeriousGames As An Alternative To Traditional Depression Treatments, Litesprite is looking for its first set of beta testers for the mobile Serious Game SinaSprite.

Litesprite is one of the winners of Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s competition “Games To Generate Data Challenge” that targets population health. They are building games to target a variety of chronic health conditions like stress, anxiety/depression, diabetes or asthma and were recently featured on NPR's KUOW Morning Edition and NBC King 5's Tech Talk.

The game being tested, SinaSprite, helps people manage stress, anxiety, and depression.

Testers get:
1. Free access to a 6 week program that teaches proven stress management techniques
2. Free access to an on-demand self-help tool
3. Progress report at the end of the study

If you or a friend would like to participate in the study, please reply to socks at

Tester Requirements:
1. Age 18 years or older.
2. English-speaking.
3. In possession of a personal iPhone (iOs 8) or Android phone or tablet (Kindle, Nook) capable of downloading the SinaSprite game for use during the study.
