About this app

Apart of Me is a multi-award-winning therapeutic game. It was co-created by experts in child psychology and bereaved young people, and translates bereavement counselling techniques into a magical 3D world.

You will be transported to a beautiful, peaceful island where you will meet a variety of friendly creatures. You will be given a guide to support you along your journey. Your guide will help you to explore, accept, understand and articulate your experience of grief and the wide range of emotions connected to it. As you progress through the game, you will discover your own strengths and wisdom. The island is a safe place where you can begin to process your grief at a pace that suits you, remember the person you have lost, and hear from others who know what it is like to lose someone you love.

I first began this game to help a friend and out of curiosity. I began it thinking of one type of loss and was completely caught off guard when a different loss I thought I dealt with came front and center. This is an amazing game. It really does get you thinking and talking about the loss and all the emotions with it. The skills used are incredibly helpful and so easy to understand and do. It's great they provide more sources for help of loss, in game. I highly recommend this game for you!

Really nice concept. Like others have said though, not all loss is a death or ill person. Loss and pain comes in a myriad of forms and a more generalized support system would be cool, as this alienates people struggling with things outside of death/illness. Also, the controls?? Why not a circle pad? The tapping system is horrid.

thank you for your response Burns. Not all loss is death, you are right. We are due to release an update which provides a different pathway for those who are dealing with different kinds of loss.

Ok. i understand why it was written and that it is no supposed to be a game in the true sense of the word, more of a bereavement councillor, but there are still some things that i find annoying. One is having to play it in landscape mode. The tiny text! especially as it is in landscape mode, and it is very slow. Again, I also realize that thus is meant for children, but it has helped me a little in my bereavement process so thanks for that.
