Abstract

Dementia is a growing health threat. Affecting over 47M people worldwide (135M by 2050), it is becoming one of the greatest medical challenges we face globally. To help scientists working towards finding a cure, we created Sea Hero Quest – a mobile game where anyone can help fight dementia. Sea Hero Quest is a multi-platform adventure game designed specifically to help advance the understanding of spatial navigation, and therefore understand one of the first symptoms of dementia. Sea Hero Quest was developed in partnership with a number of world-leading dementia scientists, spatial navigation consultants and data security specialists (UCL, Cambridge, UEA, Alzheimer’s Research UK, Deutsche Telekom) and global communications agency Saatchi & Saatchi.
