The World of Recovery will revolutionize your idea of serious non-profit games. TWoR is two games: a mobile game and an award-winning 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, non-violent 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.

Since its release, 1000 people have played (downloaded, created a characted and started to play) TWoR the mobile game individually or in groups, with or without a support person.

The World of Recovery games have been designed with recovery orientation as our framework and foundation. From the very beginning, we have involved mental health and substance abuse recoverers and professionals as well as game designers in the co-design process. We at Lilinkotisäätiö are extremely proud of the scope of this process that has involved more than 100 people and taken more than two years of intensive work.

When playing The World of Recovery games, you too can adventure in the world of hope, friendship, creativity and endless possibilities.
