A UK-based tech startup aims to develop a smartphone game that will identify and monitor symptoms of depression in players. This may be one of the most important mobile games ever made.
A failed suicide attempt from a close friend inspired neuroscientist Dr. Emilia Molimpakis and theoretical physicist Dr. Stefano Goria to start Thymia, with the mission to better address mental health conditions than clinic questionnaires.
With the aid of $1.1m in seed funding, Thymia is currently developing mobile games to do just that.
Despite how fortuitous someone may seem, absolutely no one is immune to depression.
Modern games have greatly matured, delving into hard topics such as dealing with loss and emulating disorders.
