Hope video game

A serious video game that aims to improve the well being of children with cancer.

Hope is a vide game for tablets that aims to explain to the younger, in playful and interactive ways, what cancer is, while also promoting the physical activity. This project, which is a joint effort with the Portuguese Institute of Oncology of Porto, also helps children to make their time in the hospital more bearable and productive, by increasing their self-esteem and encouraging them to fight the disease in a pro-active manner. 

Hope was developed at BRIGHT, a startup company that focuses on solving communication problems in the healthcare industry.
