Proposed Embrace Project

Announcement Date: January 11, 2016

I approached Dr. Harteveld for an independent study to make a game that taught its player gradually and naturally better coping mechanisms. Under his guidance we approached a doctorate interested in serious games from the Massachusetts General Hospital and came up with the idea for a serious game targeting cancer survivors. Playing the game would help survivors internalize and mentally prepare for the hurdles they will likely face, and help their friends and family understand on a deeper level what their newly recovering loved one is going through.
