An impact Study with the Dutch Emotional Health Organization and the Positive Psychology department of the University of Twente, showed:
-73% of players felt more connected
-81% felt more empathetic

-73% felt more authentic

The study showed a significant improvement in optimism, positive self-identity and emotional regulation, all within 30 days.
