Overview

SuperBetter is the game that author Jane McGonigal designed for herself while recovering from a brain injury, where she had to lie perfectly still for weeks and weeks. Based on her experience in game design and scientific research, she created an avatar, power-ups, bad guys, and went on quests every single day, to take the illness as a challenge and make it easier to go through. After playing the game herself, spreading the word, and turning it into an app, McGonigal has now also condensed all of her knowledge into a book. With her tips, find out how to use games to go through hard times and find the light at the end of the tunnel.
