#SelfCare is a Healthcare App Focused on Mental Health and Relaxation

#SelfCare isn't quite a video game and is instead a mental health app that encourages users to stay in bed and mind their emotional health. Made by former Assassin’s Creed developer Brie Code and writer Eve Thomas, this mental health app features a collection of gamified tasks that help users reflect on their own needs and personal health.

Serving as a "digital companion," #SelfCare joins users on their adventures without being obtrusive in their regular life. Instead, the app functions around a user's life and personality and stays away from push notifications and immediate reminders.

When users open the mental health app they'll be greeted with encouraging words and will be transported into a calming virtual world. This space allows users to remain "in bed" and offers up tasks such as breathing exercises, tarot experiences, petting a virtual cat and simply taking time for personal reflection.
