The World of Recovery will revolutionize your idea of serious, non-profit games. TWoR is two games: a mobile game and a table-top role-playing game, both designed for mental health and substance abuse recoverers. Both games are suitable for anyone who wants more adventure and activities in their life.


The World of Recovery app is a compact mobile game designed to support the player’s journey towards recovery. You complete real-life quests by taking photos. The quests stimulate your little grey cells and encourage you to get active. While playing, you discover new aspects of your local area and yourself. As you progress in the game, your character gains levels and advances on their futuristic adventure.

The mobile TWoR can be played alone or with a friend. It can also be played as a flexible, easy-to-use group activity where quest topics form the basis for group discussions.

The app is suitable for players with limited digital skills – it has been designed so that you learn to operate a smartphone as you play.
