Everyday tasks are a struggle for those living with Parkinson's Disease. To advance empathy for the cause, we recreated the feeling of Parkinson's in a game.
Neuroförbundet (Neuro) is a Swedish charity organization that supports people with brain diseases. They wanted to launch a campaign to raise awareness of Parkinson's Disease in particular, and fundraise for this worthy cause.
To meet that mission, we created a game for them called Vardagkampen, which in Swedish means everyday struggle. Our buddies at Bedow were responsible for the concept and identity, while we developed the entire game experience and delivered polished digital design.
For those who don't live with Parkinson's, it can be hard to imagine how challenging life can be every single day. Even basic tasks like changing a lightbulb or brushing teeth can be a struggle.
We built a game that would recreate the feeling of loss of precision in one's movements. As users attempt to accomplish tasks, vibrations interfere with their ability.
A progressive app experience
We built the whole experience as a Progressive Web App to make it feel native on people's smartphones. Quick to load and snappy with an app-like appearance on iOS and Android.
After completing the game, people are encouraged to act on empathy and donate to Neuroförbundet's cause. Technologically, we made that donation experience seamless by integrating with Swish, the number one Swedish money-transfer app.
