Fantasy Game Responds To Each Player’s Emotions
The card battling venture measures responses through a Bluetooth clip to adjust the experience accordingly
Champions of the ShenghaÂ is a fantasy game filled with all the essential spells and creatures to engage players. However, unlike other games, it also measures a player’s emotions through a Bluetooth clip called the BfB sensor that detects heart rates. The creators, BfB Labs, wanted to create an engaging game that also promotes mental health.
In order to cast effective spells, a player has to be calm and focused. The game utilizes algorithms that respond to data collected by the BfB sensor. Therefore, emotional control is essential in order to defeat other opponents from all over the world. Battling other players, collecting cards and bringing these cards to life are the key to becoming the champion.
This is the kind of mindfulness training that has proven to increase mental health in players. After two-and-a-half years of tests, research and design, this game has proven to be a way to decrease anxiety levels and increase emotional control. Currently, anyone can back up this project on Indiegogo to have full access when the final version is released next year.
