Epic Allies

Epic Allies is a mobile gaming app that utilizes social media and mini-games to increase adherence to prescribed medication among HIV-positive men who have sex with men. Geared toward young men who have sex with men ages 16-24, Epic Allies enables users to set reminders to take their medications and record when they’ve taken them. They’re also encouraged to track their mood and behaviors such as smoking, alcohol consumption, marijuana use and exercise. The app awards virtual medals for use of these features. Users can also send messages that encourage allies to improve their adherence or congratulate them for adherence successes. Epic Allies also features mini-games to help motivate users progress through the game and to unlock new features.
