Karen mixes gaming with storytelling to give you a personalised life-coaching experience.

Karen is a life coach and she’s happy to help you work through a few things in your life.

When you begin, she asks you some questions about your outlook on the world to get an understanding of you. In fact, her questions are drawn from psychological profiling questionnaires. She – and the software – are profiling you and she gives you advice based on your answers.

Karen mixes gaming with storytelling to give you a personalised experience. Play to the end and you can buy a report on your own data, showing how the science of profiling has been applied to you.

This groundbreaking app is a new work by Blast Theory, developed in partnership with National Theatre Wales. Co-commissioned by The Space and 539 Kickstarter backers Karen has been developed with support from the Mixed Reality Lab at the University of Nottingham and in collaboration with Dr Kelly Page.

Should've been longer

The game and it's plot was nice but it should have been longer. The game didn't have much videos before the ending .

What a unique and memorable experience this app is. I am not aware of anything quite like it. I have experienced Karen multiple times and was happy to see this rereleased.

Anyone thinking about watching needs to understand that this is not an app about life coaching. It is an interactive drama about a 40ish therapist living somewhere in the UK. We see glimpses of Karen’s life over a period of time and must fill in the gaps ourselves.

It’s experimental theatre in my pocket and I find that amazing.

Enjoying the expereince

You could file this under "I need to get a life" but I am enjoying the experience of this app so far. I agree that the individual sessions/episodes should be longer. However, I am answering all of the questions with complete honesty and curious to see where it goes. Since it is a limited experience, I would be interested in a follow up.
