Mindbloom Is A Game That Rewards You For Living A Rich, Full Life

The Mindbloom Life Game gives you a fun and interactive way to work on your own motivations and personal goals and passions. Unlike a lot of self-improvement “games” that are gimmicks to help you build a to-do list, Mindbloom was designed to be fun, story-driven and useful at the same time.

When you play Mindbloom, you plant a tree that represents your life, with leaves that represent the different aspects of your life that are important to you. As you progress through the game, you have to decide what actions you can take that will nurture different parts of the tree based on the limited time and resources that you have. Once you’ve identified the areas of your life that are important to you, like your health, career, relationships, finances, spirituality and more, you can nurture your “life tree”, which will then grow and develop in different ways based on how you water it and how much sun it gets.

This is where the self-help part comes in. In order to nurture the tree, you come with a list of things you want to do now or have always wanted to do and add them to a kind of personal development plan. For example, you can select from items already in the game that encourage things like healthier eating, exercise, calling your family or random acts of kindness.

Customise your personal plan with images and music, and then go into the real world and do the things you added to your list. As you perform real-world actions, you get points, achievements, badges and other in-game rewards for essentially doing the things you’ve always wanted to do anyway. As you play, you’ll earn more rewards, and ideally the bigger benefit will be in your real, offline life.
