Mobile game maker Glu Mobile announced on Wednesday that it had raised $2.5 million in venture capital backing, bringing its total funding to $4 million.
The company has created a game called “The Age of Smart” that helps users to reduce their stress by “learning to live life in the present,” as Glu puts it.
Glu CEO Richard Levene told Business Insider that the game’s simplicity and ability to be played on a mobile device makes it the perfect way for people to learn to live in the moment.
“It’s an extremely simple way to live, and it’s really the first time that anyone has done that,” Levener said.
“So, this is a way that we could get the information into the brain that’s not in the brain, but that’s still there.”
The game also has a few other interesting properties.
The first is that it will allow users to “learn to live with dementia,” Levernes said.
This, Levenes said, could be an important benefit for people with cognitive disorders, who often experience dementia-like symptoms.
“In the past, we’ve done very focused cognitive training,” Levis said.
“[The game] is designed to teach people to live without dementia.”
A few other features in the game include an “auto-complete” feature that will automatically complete the words of text to help users understand what they are reading, and a learning tool that lets users “learn the meaning of words and words’ meanings.”
In the game, users can also earn “pills” by completing quizzes and quizzes, Levis explained.
The game will launch with two versions: a free version and a premium version.
In the premium version, users will get access to a full version of the game and will be able to create their own personalized stories, which can be edited and edited again to change their story.
The premium version also offers access to the company’s advanced game learning tools, which will allow developers to make “better, smarter and more interactive games” using “data and insights from the brain.”
The premium versions of the mobile game will be free to download and will include a variety of game features like a cloud-based analytics system, “more than 200 animated levels” and the ability to “add a custom soundtrack,” Leves told Business Insiders.
The Premium version will also offer access to premium premium content and unlock a $100,000 prize pool.
Levena added that Glu has been working on the game for “several years” and has “made huge investments in the business” as well as in other areas like “education and neuroscience.”
The company recently partnered with the U.S. Department of Defense to fund the development of a mobile app called “Smart Soldiers,” which is designed “to help veterans find and recover from brain injuries.”
The app uses “deep learning” to analyze a user’s brain activity and “learns the connections between brain activity patterns,” LeVille said.
The app is scheduled to launch in early 2019.
The Age of Smarter “is a new game from a small company that has already raised some $1 million,” Levello said.
It will be released in late 2019.
“This is a game that has been in the works for a while and we’re very excited to be working with them to bring this to life.”
The Age Of Smarter will have a release date in 2019, and the company is planning to make it available on mobile devices and other devices.
“The app is intended to be a gateway into the world of cognitive training and how you can learn to learn, which is the very same thing that you do when you’re learning to live,” Levi said.
