Research shows that maintaining self-care practices such as mindful breathing, meditation, and exercise radically improves the overall health and wellness of those suffering from mental health ailments. Couple this research with gaming and you have Amaru: The Self-Care Virtual Pet.

Gabriel Pappalardo, Ph.D. Founder, CEO, and Creative Director at Six Wing Studios is on a quest to develop an upcoming mobile game that supports your self-care habits through building a relationship with your very own virtual pet! You'll feed, pet, and play with the adorable Amaru while also engaging in guided mindfulness exercises and journal activities that build focus and resilience to stress, anxiety, and depression. Explore the mysterious world of Enso, earn rewards to customize your experience, and build an Aura that inspires Amaru to maintain his peace of mind.
