Welcome to the Goal Quest Games Blog!

We are excited you are here! We are a sister team; Marcia is a professional game designer and Jan is a Certified Peer Support Specialist working in Community Mental Health with people who are in recovery from mental illness.

Working on recovery includes an important aspect: setting goals. So we decided to make some games about goal setting! It is our hope that these games, the Goal Quest series, will bring an element of fun and lighthearted discussion to what can be a difficult process.

The initial step toward setting goals involves recognizing strengths. So the first game in the Goal Quest series focuses on helping people realize their unique abilities. Named Strengths and Troubles (TM), the game encourages players to think about their positive traits and identifies tools that can be used when trouble strikes!

Coming Up Next: Images of the game!
