1 in 4 children suffer from spartial processing disorder(SPD)

SPD is the inability to make use of the direction that sound is coming from. When in an environment where sound is coming from multiple directions, a child with SPD will struggle to distinguish or understand a voice that is right in front of them.

The Solution

Introducing Sound Storm 

Working with the National Acoustic Laboratory in Sydney we developed Sound Storm, An innovative iPad app that works as a medical tool designed to remediate cases of SPD. Our solution was to wrap the science around a fun and complelling game, one that combines multiple reward mechanics with a rich and captivating narrative.

Creating a Universe 

Filled with numerous rich characters and unique environments, each element was hand crafted and rendered, to create a fully realised and vibrant galaxy.

The Characters 

The player follows the exciting adventures of Suno, a young brave lion, on an epic quest to save the galaxy from the destructive and chaotic Sound Storm. As Suno progresses through the game various rewards, powers and worlds are unlocked.

Storytelling

Each world came to life with an immersive narrative designed to engage the child and encourage continuous participation.

Multi-layered reward 

The game also features a multilayered reward system designed to encourage kids to keep playing. Containing instant feedback, daily unlockables and weekly rewards, they combined to help unlock new worlds and progress the story.

Clinical data 

Game play was then automatically translated into detailed medical graphs, designed specifically to be used by Audiologists, in order to track remedial progress accurately.

The Result 

Studies have shown that 100% of SPD affected children that complete the remediation program are cured of the disorder. Following the success of the iOS app an android version of the game has been commissioned.
