Mental health app review

I’m part of a team that rates and reviews mental health apps and this is one of the top gamified health apps I’ve ever seen. It’s so good that I decided to write this review as it allows me to be more personal. This app is highly engaging, allows personalization and creativity all while combatting mental health.

It reduces the stigma that most teens face when taking measures for mental health help due to its ‘cool’ content. I also especially like it’s skateboarder/graffiti underground vibe given that most kids turn to that lifestyle(deviancy) when feeling unaccepted by society and family. Pure Genius. Therefore I encourage parents of children who are or may be heading towards that path to take this game into consideration.

While this game would have been ranked very highly on our site due to its content and experience of development team, Digging Deeper lacks publicity of Shadow Edges’ research. You state in many areas the findings of your research and development however there is no published research papers displayed anywhere (even after thorough research). Please publish such research and display it public for a more comprehensive score.

5/5 on here because the App Store isn’t meant for research ratings or scores.

Developer Response ,

Dear jmentalhealth, thank you so much for your kind review! The team is super happy to hear this! We are receiving the formal outcome from a one year clinical trial at Lurie Children's Hospital this month (November 2020) and this will be published at several conferences next year. We will also publish our in-house research in the coming months. Please drop us a note at if you are interested so we can send you the reports. Thank you again & warm regards!

I love how helpful this is. I’m 22 almost 23...

I love this app. There isn’t one out there like this. I would love an iMessage stickers with this. It could help promote others to this app. I love how this is totally free and doesn’t have ads (please don’t add ads to this). Maybe a fun idea would to be able to pay for some of the art and pages you’ve worked on. I think if that was ever in talks I would make it $1 for those who want to see/show off their artwork and I would love to see this on the Nintendo Switch and buy it for $5 and I think that could be a fun cool unique idea. Keep up the great work and I hope this has more stories coming soon.

Hi KrazyKhol20,
Thank you for this amazing review of Shadow's Edge. We love your idea for an iMessage sticker. Please check in with us about that via
Our project is a non-profit and therefore have chosen to take transactions out of the equation. While it is a great idea, it does come with a lot of development to implement a trading and payment system. But we will put the suggestion on our wishlist because you never know, we can think about it again in our future roadmap.
Happy playing and please get in touch with us.

Really Eye Opening.

This game has a pretty unique story in which you go to fill a dark, gray world with talent and color once again with your own masterpieces. The writing in the black journal gives you a place to quickly reflect on all sorts of different types of personal feelings, all in your pocket or bag. I enjoy my time with this app, and I hope to find more like it!
