When I came across this Ted Talk from gaming superstar, Jane McGonigal, I immediately felt a kindred spirit.  

When game designer, Jane McGonigal found herself bedridden and suicidal following a severe concussion, she had a fascinating idea for how to get better.  She dove into the scientific research and created the healing game, SuperBetter.

I am not a game designer.  I am a visual person with a B.S. in Fashion Design.  It may seem like an unlikely fit to be the Project Manager here at N-1 Games, but actually, working to teach health and wellness via games is perfect for someone like me who relishes in a passionate, whimsical, and visual world.  

About ten years ago, I began learning about a practice called the Enneagram*.  For those of you who know me, you know that I took to it like white on rice.  If you do not know me, well, I took to it like white on rice!  It helped me to have a deeper sense of myself and others.  

The practice of the Enneagram spilled right into my deepest being and exposed my depression.  This practice, along with the correct medical attention, a great teacher, and support from family and friends, has enabled me to recognize my depression as a gift.  And, at the risk of sounding dramatic, (I fixate on type 4**), it has saved my life many times over.  

Each day that I get to work with N-1 Games is a day of healing and abundance!

Jane McGonigal  found healing through gaming.  I believe I am finding it, too, right here at N-1 Games!

The lives of the teachers and students are very necessary and sacred. The entire society and community is dependent on the quality and curriculum. The content of the studies and subjects is acquired for the promotion of the jobs and attainment of the professional goals.

It's really amazing how this art form can really heal. I sometimes think the academic studies fool us into thinking this kind of work is not something we should take seriously. I can never imagine a world without gaming. Everything will be boring. I am sure a lot of people will agree. If the right amount of screen time can be therapeutic for players, I am sure it is equally beneficial to the health of the one who designed it. They needed that brain activity because they have a much bigger capacity to think and be creative.

We have let go of that childlike wonder and mindset that we used to enjoy. Not because we have to, but because we (somewhat unknowingly) choose to.

Endless Ocean is one of those games that you love or hate so it's gonna be endless fun or endless boredom. This is a game that some of you might even accuse of not being a game because of its nature.

Good cards are a must when the stakes are high. Either that or a really convincing bluff, but no one can pull that off all the time.
