Interbots is excited to announce our new iPad game, Popchilla’s World! Popchilla’s World is designed to help children with autism practice daily routines and social interaction skills in a fun and playful way.
In the game, Popchilla needs the child’s help to navigate the world and complete simple activities like brushing Popchilla’s teeth, making Popchilla’s bed, or saying hello. As the child completes these activities they are rewarded with in-game achievements and new activities to explore.
A special “Grownups View” allows parents, therapists and other caregivers to track the child’s progress, personalize the activities and get recommendations for new activities to try. In the future, caregivers will be able to make their own activities and share them with other parents, therapists, and families.
We’re running a Kickstarter Campaign throughout April, National Autism Awareness Month, to raise the funding needed to expand our prototype of Popchilla’s World into a complete game. We’d appreciate some help getting the word out about our campaign – if you know of anyone affected by autism, feel free to share the link with them.
