Get uplifted

Today, Monday 21 January 2013, Channel 4 Education announces the launch of Uplifted, a new iOS and Android app about happiness, created by digital creative agency Kanoti. 

Uplifted is set in the faraway land of Happ, a place filled with joy, wonder and delight – or least it used to be before the Viroids arrived and brought doom, gloom and destruction.

The game’s protagonist - the Happ - can restore happiness, but only with the player’s help. Players must guide the Happ along his journey by burrowing and joyously launching him through each level, relying on hidden friends for extra help to transform and restore his planet to its former happy state.

At the end of each level, players are asked questions to get them thinking about what makes them happy and in doing so can build up a bank of answers: a personal recording of the positive things in their lives. 

Uplifted is available on both the iPhone and Android phones.
