Video Games for TBI Rehab - clinician expertise needed

Do you like to play video games?

Are you a clinician? caregiver? person with a disability?

Can you spend a few hours play-testing video games or being part of a focus group about games being developed for U.S. servicemen and women with mild traumatic brain injury?

Blue Marble Game Company designs and develops video games for rehabilitation. We are funded by the Army to create video games for U.S. servicemen and women with mild traumatic brain injury.

Our games will ultimately serve U.S. troops, so it is of the utmost importance to us that we get feedback from enlisted personnel and veterans as well as caregivers, and clinicians (PT, OT, ST, neuropsychology).

Please contact us!

We need your input so we can make great video games for our troops!
