YOUR HEALTH PET
LOSING WEIGHT BY PLAYING GAMES
Games can make an important contribution to healthcare, and we seek to realise this potential. The goal of Yellow Riders is to develop games which change behaviour in a fun way. We focus on (preventive) health, using accessible applied games in the fields of exercise, food and wellness. We are specialised in motivation and behaviour change by implementing games in various contexts
In collaboration with the largest hospital in Holland we have developed YOOP, an applied game for overweight/obese kids.
The aim of the game is to motivate kids to live healthier lives (lose weight) , and to change their behavior. In a relaxed, fun and positive way.
We do this by means of a virtual pet (alter ego), which should be taken care of.
The pet must eat healthy and regularly, drink plenty of water, control craving moments, and is linked to an activity tracker, so the children will have to keep moving to get ahead in the game, and unlock new games.
With the right gameplay, levels and rewards, we believe we are able to keep the kids motivated.
The game does not replace therapy, but is an addition to existing therapies and lifestyle programs. E-coaching can be added.
Losing weight by playing games, that’s what we aim for.
We are from Yellow Riders (.com), a Dutch applied games company.
EVERY DAY TASKS
Make sure you keep YOOP balanced and happy by giving him the right foos, walk real steps and play to keep him 100% healthy. If not, he'll get very moody.....
TO GET EXTRA POWERS
games...yes, no problem
Play the minigames to stay informed , get super powers and unlock new ones
Ift is a very good start of the day if YOOP gets a healthy breakfast. Make the right choice to get power points. Get extra powers if you do it every day.
Make the right choice
Try to feed YOOP with healthy stuff, a good daily mix with max 1500 calories a day.
Make sure you choose the healthy calories, and don't overfeed, otherwise YOOP will get very depressed. You will be rewarded!
It is important to get enough rest. Let YOOP sleep every night so he has enough energy for the next day. Don't miss these power points!
Yes, for real!
Take steps to keep YOOP in shape. No game steps but real ones, go outside! Your phone or Fitbit will track your steps. Keep on walking to get power points and unlock new items.
Water, water, water
Drink lots of water instead of sugar drinks. By doing that, YOOP will be so much happier and fit. YOOP needs 1,5 liter a day, and so do you.
