In September 2018, we worked with the MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric and Genomics at Cardiff University to host JAMMIND, a game jam funded by the Wellcome Trust.
JAMMIND brought together video game developers, mental health researchers and clinicians, and mental health campaigners to create a variety of games aimed at accurate and positive portrayals of mental health.
Over the weekend our teams produced three games.
In Picturesque you play as a world-renowned photographer on the trail of a thought-to-be extinct species of reindeer. Throughout the game you will stumble across mushrooms that your character will become compelled to take photos of. Taking a photo of them will deal with the compulsion and allow you to continue.
At the end of the game you will be prompted to search through the photos you have taken to submit a picture of the Dawson caribou, your target.
