Everyone has heroic potential.

SuperBetter builds resilience – the ability to stay strong, motivated and optimistic even in the face of life’s challenges. Playing SuperBetter unlocks heroic potential to overcome tough situations and achieve goals that matter most.

SuperBetter was invented by world-renowned game designer Jane McGonigal. Its unique methodology uses the psychology of game play to build life skills, overcome obstacles & achieve greater success in all areas of life.

We make the SuperBetter web & mobile apps available for free to anyone around the world.

►► Message from the SuperBetter team

We’re a small but mighty team working to amplify the impact of SuperBetter in the world. Our reality means prioritizing resources on an upcoming version of SuperBetter that will dramatically grow our impact. We do our best to maintain the Original SuperBetter as a free service, but the apps can sometimes be buggy. If you have issues on your device, try the website.

►► Exciting News from Davos

Based on a sneak peak of our upcoming plans, SuperBetter was named a winner of The World Economic Forum’s Youth Mental Health Challenge. In the future SuperBetter will be available for players of all ages, and we are excited to play a bigger role to help end the mental health crisis among youth & young adults.

►► Why play SuperBetter?

Here are some reasons people use SuperBetter:

- To adopt a new habit, learn or improve a skill, strengthen a relationship, make a physical or athletic breakthrough, complete a meaningful project, or pursue a lifelong dream.
- To beat depression, overcome anxiety, manage stress, cope with chronic pain, or heal from a concussion or other physical injury,
- To overcome a life challenge like dealing with a school setback, finding a new job, surviving divorce, or grieving a loss.
- To help others – teachers use the SuperBetter methodology to promote social-emotional learning, therapists refer the SuperBetter app to their patients.

►► What is the Power of Living Gamefully?

To Live Gamefully means bringing the same mindset and psychological strengths naturally displayed when playing games – such as optimism, creativity, courage, and determination – to real life. It means having the courage and openness to try different strategies to discover what works best. It means collaborating with allies, and building up the resilience to tackle tougher and tougher challenges with greater and greater success.

►► SuperBetter is backed by science

SuperBetter is validated in published studies to build resilience, improve mental health, and support recovery.

In randomized controlled & clinical trials conducted at University of Pennsylvania and The Ohio State University playing SuperBetter is associated with improvements in resilience, mental health and social emotional skills. Published meta-analyses show its effectiveness for reducing anxiety & depression.

Thank you

Amazing, just try it and become better. My mental health has held me back so long. I’m finally getting to gross with what I can do for myself and this app is a huge help giving me responsibility and accountability. That’s not what bad mental health boils down too, I’m well aware of that. I am getting the proper help from doctors etc, however, personally I wanted to do what I could for myself to enhance the help I already receive and this app has helped immeasurably

Brilliant idea but digital products needs improvement

I was invited in by a dear friend and was blown up by the whole concept: I loved it! Finally somebody made it fun and engaging to bite size your way to awesomeness together with trusted allies!

As soon I started my ally journey though I started getting a bit confused every now and then and also experiencing some unexpected glitches (mostly with the iOS app). As a seasoned experience designer I would so love to jam together and help this idea thrive and superheroes spring everywhere around the planet!

I wish they can rapidly make it up and address the key experience gaps soon enough - which will certainly prompt me to increase the number of stars here :)

Better than boom beach

Yes, I am addicted to the boom beach rewards. And here we are, another reward system I can ACTUALLY benefit from! I am starting the losing weight journey but I see all the next topics I can play with. Let’s unlock the next level
