The Mind Hero
A puzzle/platform/dating sim PC game & app which will also subtly teach you important and helpful psychological concepts as you play.
The Mind Hero is to be something completely new. In addition to being a puzzle/platform/dating sim in which you go into the minds of six girls and two adults to save them, you'll also learn important psychological concepts in the background of the story as you do, and these can be taken away from the game and applied to real life.
Colven, 17, visits the lab where his mother and grandfather work, knowing his mother has gone unconscious after taking an experimental antidepressant. As it turns out, it was actually suppressing negative feelings and making them more powerful, and in addiition to putting her and the other six girls who took it into a coma, there is a side effect that Colven can enter their minds simply by laying near them and focusing.
He enters the mind of his mother, who is torn with grief about-- among other things-- the effect the antidepressant had on the other six girls. So to help free her from grief, Colven must go into their minds first to save all of them, which can be done in any order. He'll learn important things about psychology, have some fun, meet some danger, and gain some affection along the way.
Some of the psychological concepts-- i.e. how your personality can be altered by traumas that occur during specific stages of life, as first presented by the late famous psychoanalyst Erik Erikson-- are outlined within the video, while more will be presented within the game. You might be surprised after learning them all how they apply to you and those around you, and how helpful this knowledge might be to your life. And that's after having gotten more than your money's worth from simply enjoying the game.
