An Introduction to Sea Hero Quest
“It’s not just a game, it’s a quest to help scientists fight dementia!”
Rarely does a game come along that not only entertains yet more importantly actually creates a very real and positive impact on the world. Sea Hero Quest is exactly that and much, much more! Sea Hero Quest is one of those games that breaks the mold of conventional gaming and as such, this article is more of an introduction and a plea to play rather than the usual style of providing tips and tricks on how to master the game and get the most enjoyment out of it as quickly as possible.
Created by team Glitchers, Deutsche Telekom and professor Hornberger, Sea Quest Hero was designed to generate data which would create a new test for early onset dementia and by playing S.Q.H for “just two minutes will generate more than 5 hours of lab-based research.
Sea Hero Quest is a heart-wrenching tale of a young boy who set off with his father to sail the seas and explore the world. Years later however the boy has grown as has the father who unfortunately has lost all of the treasured memories of their time together in the past. The son (player) therefore decides to captain his father’s ship and relive all of their past glorious adventures in the hope of rekindling his father’s memories.
Sea Hero Quest : Gameplay
Designed to help researches understand how the mind deals with dementia, Sea Quest Hero features three different sections; navigation, shooting flares and chasing creatures. Each section has been carefully selected to challenge the mind in the simplest way to provide the most information regarding how the mind deals with the degenerative condition.
Actually gameplay is evidently extremely simple with players first viewing a map and then tapping left or right to steer the ship towards the designated goal whilst swiping up to boost speed or down to reduce.
Spatial recognition and awareness is key as the shooting flares section will test players’ ability to remember the direction of a buoy as they choose a direction to fire towards. The creature chasing section is fashioned as an ‘endless runner’ style where players must swerve to avoid obstacles before having to perfect time taps to capture the perfect shot of creatures to collect in your scrapbook.
Features of Sea Hero Quest
Navigate Arctic Rivers, Golden Shores and Mystic Marshes (and Kano Reef coming soon, Kaano fans!), collect memories in your journal and chase magical creatures like Adorabella, Galleo and Octopoid. Collect as many starfish as possible and use them to customise your boat with a new lick of paint, a host of flags and much more!
Deutsche Telekom believes that life is for sharing, that’s why they are presenting SEA HERO QUEST – a game to help scientists fight dementia and work towards a future where memories are shared not lost before their time.
Join the Quest and be a real-life hero.

Personal Impressions // Review of Sea Hero Quest
For some unknown reason Dementia and Alzheimer’s has continued to be a silent topic that is known of and accepted yet not actively fought against with such passion as other causes. The truth is though that the numbers are actually mind numbingly shocking! (Pun intended)
Ten percent of all human life will experience the disorder in some variation within their life. More frightening though is that nearly half of the population over 85 having significant symptoms. As disabling as the disease actually is, the syndrome is actually far more debilitating for family members and friends. It is for this precise reason that we at Blue Lagoon urge and implore all to download and spend a little time on Sea Quest Hero so that countless lives may benefit.
