Dementia attacks the brain and robs people of their navigational skills and their memories. Our ability to share language, moments and memories is what makes us who we are. Deutsche Telekom believes life is for sharing, and Dementia robs us of the ability to share with those we love most.
We’ve teamed up with leading scientists, dementia experts and game developers to help create the world’s first mobile game where anyone can help scientists fight dementia. Data from every second you spend playing is shared anonymously with scientists to find out more about how everybody’s brain works when they navigate, helping them to understand the early symptoms of the disease and eventually diagnose the condition earlier.
Ultimately this will help us work towards a future where memories are shared, not lost before their time.
Now it’s in your hands. Download Sea Hero Quest. Share your time to game for good.
Available for free via the App Store and Google Play.

Dementia is a massive global health threat. It currently affects 47 Million people worldwide, a number that will triple by 2050. No one has ever survived dementia, there is no cure and research on the condition is very far behind other diseases.
