about the game

Relaxation allows the player to solve attention bias modification puzzles

MindLight incorporates several evidence-based strategies including relaxation and mindfulness techniques, attention bias modification methods, and neurofeedback mechanics that together produce an immersive game world through which children learn to manage and overcome anxiety symptoms


The player learns that he can conquer his fear and anxiety by tapping into the power of his own mind

Using the neurofeedback headset to play the game, the environment, threats and puzzles all respond to how the player is allocating their attention and, thus, how he/she is feeling

  • MindLight was nominated as a Top 3 finalist for the Games for Change 2015 Most Significant Impact award.
