Game Design Tools
iThrive Games is pleased to provide Design Guides (downloadable below) to help game developers design for prosocial outcomes. These resources are based in scientific findings from positive psychology and social and emotional learning. They are developed through thoughtful, in-depth discussions with academics and top game industry experts at iThrive Design Hives. They are tested at iThrive Game Jams and iterated on based on input from the many developers who have used them. They are not meant to be prescriptive but rather to spark design ideas.
Do you know of a game that offers opportunities to practice positive skills and habits like empathy, growth mindset, or curiosity? Have you developed one, or do you have one in development? Let us know! In addition to these resources, iThrive Games offers free consultation for developers who are making positive psychology games. Contact us for more information.
