About Merrier 😄

What does Merrier do?

Merrier helps you to overcome anxiety, depression or any negative feelings by turning them into a game. Applying the addictive elements of a game (such as quests and trophies), it gives you motivation and reason to continue your journey to recovery.

What can Merrier be used for?

Merrier was created with the goal of overcoming anxieties. It can be used to beat anxiety, depression, or any form of stress. However, it is not a substitute for professional help.

There are so many apps out there… how is Merrier different?

Merrier is different because:

  • You’re rewarded for completing quests and overcoming fears. This positive reinforcement trains your mind into seeking to overcome more and more challenges!
  • Your encouraged to take actionable steps so you can see progress right away.
  • Merrier is supported by research, borrowing concepts from CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) that are proven to help with overcoming anxiety.
  • It’s a game! Games are fun!

Quests ⭐️

What are quests?

Quests are challenges that you set yourself to overcome. They are like the stepping stones to the wider goal of confidence. An example would be giving a presentation.

How long do I have to complete a quest?

There is no time limit – take as long as you need. However, we recommend doing small challenges that you can complete in a day.

How do I start a quest?

On your Quest Map, tap the plus icon. Enter a title and short description, and your initial confidence on the task. Done!

How do I end a quest?

On your Quest Map, tap the clock icon. This will bring up your ongoing quest. Enter your final confidence on the task and press complete.

What is the initial/final rating?

The initial rating is how confident you feel about the upcoming quest. It goes from 1 to 10, 1 being “this makes me really anxious!” and 10 being “psshh, easy peasy!”

The final rating is how confident you feel about the quest now that you’ve completed it. A lot of the time, we think something will be more difficult than it actually ends up being. Seeing this contrast and having a record of your past quests will prove to you that you can cope well in seemingly difficult situations, and ease your mind for future quests.

Can I see my past quests?

Yep! Your Quest Map has all your past quests. Tap on any of the numbered icons to view a quest. You’ll be able to see the quest information, date complete, initial and final rating, and stars.

What do the stars mean?

Stars are based on your final confidence on a quest.

  • 3-4/10: One star
  • 5-7/10: Two stars
  • 8-10/10: Three stars

Rewards & Achievements 🏆

What are trophies?

You earn trophies for reaching certain milestones. For example, completing 10 quests or earning 100 coins. You can view your trophies by going to your profile and tapping on the trophy icons.

How do I win coins?

Coins are earned by completing quests and winning trophies.

How does the streak work?

Your streak is the amount of days in a row that you’ve completed at least one quest. It resets every day at midnight (UTC).

How do the leaderboards work?

There are three leaderboards that show the top ten users that have: the most quests complete, the most coins earned, and the highest streak. You can toggle between them by tapping the icons. You can also see your stats above the leaderboards.
