DTF Colombo commented on New Life Challenge - The Game

Hi Bettina Fliegel 

Thank you very much for the tremendous support! These information are really useful and we will make the most out of them.

Yes we have shared the prototype with a few expecting parents and some found it really interesting and some found it boring. We are identifying more insights via these usability tests and that helps us to improve this game further. We are try to make it more exciting for them. We are focusing on 3 categories of users:
1. Parents who are thinking about having a baby.
2. Parents who are pregnant and expecting a baby.
3. Parents of new born.

The fathers will go in one path and the mothers will go in another. They will be asked questions about certain scenarios and based on the reaction of the father/mother the game will provide feedback.

ex: You are receiving a call from your girlfriend/wife that she's pregnant. What is the first thing that you would tell her?

Apart from questions, there will be some activities that the players are asked to do in the game and the game will ask the fellow players to rate your activity. This way we can create a community through this game.

ex: Take a flower bouquet home today and post a picture of your wife holding it with you.

Kate Rushton we need a trust worthy data source to form our clinical questions. Any recommendations?
