A Step Ahead: Zombies

Wellness challenges created by… game designers?

Games take us away to different worlds, challenge us, entertain us, and engage us. But games don’t have to be limited to first-person shooters on your Xbox or slingshotting ill-tempered birds on your smartphone. We use games to create healthier humans.

Yeah, we stand out.

A Step Ahead: Zombies

A Step Ahead wasn’t designed by a stuffy corporate wellness team trying to slap the term “gamification” on an otherwise boring program. It was created by video game designers, with game mechanics, running on a world-class gaming engine with the fun and engagement of real games. A Step Ahead is a not “gamified,” it’s a corporate wellness game.

Games vs. Gamification

Why games?

They’re fun
Games are engaging by nature of being fun! When you make something fun, people will naturally want to participate.

They’re ideal for groups
Games are excellent at driving behavior in groups, where team play, group goals, camaraderie and competition motivate action.

They support positive behavior change
Our very physiology and hard wiring naturally align with using games for positive behavioral change. Interested in the science?
