Goal

Heart Sense Game is an example of a cartoon world videogame being designed as a health behavior intervention with the help of AESOP. Its goal is to help the player to overcome their own symtom recognition and resistive behavior issues before they have a heart attack themselves (or a loved one has one). The hope is that learning about these issues in a story world will help to reduce delay in seeking care if one ever encounters a heart attack in the real world. Heart Sense is being developed in 2002, will undergo clinical trial in 2003, and should be published by the end of 2003.
