Power-up for life

using serious games & gamifications

0000 Realizedpower-ups

The road to a million power-ups!
8D Games employs the power of play to teach children and young adults about life skills. For example: learning how to stand up for yourself, being open to new experiences and taking good care of your body and mind. All our projects bring about positive change. We are mainly active in education, the social domain and health care.

Each power-up brings the player closer to unlocking a healthy and happy life. For some, a power-up is completing a bike ride after a period of inactivity; for others it is about finding the courage to discuss a difficult subject during an educational board game.

Can gaming teach children how to wash their hands properly?

Tina’s Hands World

Raising awareness of hand sanitation in young children

Can a serious game teach children to wash their hands better? With this question the University of Twente and the University of Münster approached 8D Games.

It soon became clear that children often do know that washing their hands is important. However, it is not always clear how and when it is best to wash your hands. With a prototype, we started to investigate how serious gaming could change this.

Johan denkt graag mee!

“Thanks to their ‘fun’ factor, games can be a very nice way to start the dialogue in an accessible way and in this way stimulate multidisciplinary cooperation. If those games can also be played online, any logistical and organizational barriers will also be removed. For our project, that was the perfect combination.“

Csilla Lazar

Spektrum Educational Center Foundation

“While playing the games, the patients were much less aware of their complaints, so they moved more freely. Shifting the focus clearly offers opportunities. In this case, the name ‘serious gaming’ is incorrect: it makes the exercises less serious and takes the sting out of it.“

“I have only positive things to say about the collaboration with 8D-Games. They have created games with high level of quality. We are collaborating for the ACBC project and their contribution is very important.”
