Thread Details

Both iTunes and Google play have Sea Hero Quest for free.

Google Play [google.com]

iTunes [apple.com]

Created by GLITCHERS, presented by Deutsche Telekom and supported by scientists from University College London and University of East Anglia and the lovely people at Alzheimer's Research, SEA HERO QUEST is an epic culmination of science and gameplay that will change the way dementia research is done forever.

One of the first symptoms of dementia is loss of navigational skills. Doctors cannot differentiate between getting lost caused by disease and getting lost caused by natural ageing because a benchmark of "normal" does not exist.

Until now ... because as you play, your navigational data is tracked anonymously, stored securely and combined with every other player from around the globe, to create the world's largest crowd sourced data set benchmarking human spatial navigation. This incredible resource will eventually lead to the development of new diagnosis tools and treatments for dementia.
