6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Got Game Entertainment has announced that MindHabits for both Mac OS X and Windows has shipped to retail stores across America. The game's challenges are purported to help players maintain a more positive state of mind resulting in reduced stress and boosted self-confidence. MindHabits is based on more than a decade of research and findings by Dr. Mark Baldwin of McGill University.

"We are particularly pleased to bring 'MindHabits' to the PC and Mac platforms," said Got Game Entertainment President Howard Horowitz. "If you have a computer, you're ready to launch your new outlook on life."

According to the developers of MindHabits, your frame of mind makes a huge difference in daily self-confidence and ability to deal with stress research demonstrates the ability to shift this frame using the specially designed MindHabits challenges. In one challenge, for example, you must find the smiling faces in a crowd of frowns, which studies have shown can help train your mind to react to positive information. Similarly, word challenges associate certain concepts with your own personal words, reinforcing positive personal associations and activating positive patterns of thought.

Dr. Baldwin's research shows that playing "MindHabits" can help reduce the stress hormone cortisol by up to 17%, and that benefits can be gained from playing in just 5 minutes a day.

Other game features include:
200 levels of game play in 4 core games
Daily tracking of results and measurement of progress over time
Customizable male/female only options
Over 1,500 face images in higher levels
Game play adaptable to player skill level
Ability to customize for age, neighborhood, and facial characteristics
Science lab that explains how and why "MindHabits" works.

MindHabits debuts at $19.99 (USD) and is rated "E" for Everyone by the ESRB. Follow the links below for more information.
