They support us!
From the very start of the project, it was important for us to have the help of health professionals so that Smokitten wouldn’t be just be a toy, but a real tool to help people stop smoking. We found support in the Centre Hygée (the public health platform of Cancéropôle Lyon Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes), which was the ideal partner for this project. Thanks to a team of experts in health and cancer prevention (psychologists, tobacco cessation specialists, oncologists…), Smokitten draws on scientific data on behavioural change and tests that were conducted throughout the game’s development at the centre’s Living Lab. The Centre Hygée studied the levers for behavioural change to use, and we transformed them into fun, effective, and realistic game mechanics!
