Ubisoft Announces DS Game To Help You Quit Smoking

Ubisoft yesterday announced its plans to publish a DS game developed to help you stop smoking based on Alan Carr’s Easyway to Stop Smoking Method.

Sitting on people’s bookshelves in over 50 countries, Alan Carr’s book is an international bestseller. Carr was a chain smoker for 33 years and successfully quit in 1983. He realized he had discovered a method which could enable any smoker to stop and embarked on a mission to cure the world of smoking.

Developed in conjunction with Allen Carr’s top experts, the game echoes the philosophy of Allen Carr’s Easyway method, allegedly enabling players to be entertained, challenged and stop smoking at the same time.

If this turns out to be true, we’ll be impressed. More often than not, people trying to quit smoking tend to be a bit cranky and so, could probably do with a bit of cheering up, anyway.

The press release doesn’t reveal much about the game play so we’re not really sure how it’s supposed to help you quit smoking, but it does tell us you’ll have to input your smoking history into the system and you’ll then be assigned your own Easyway coach to help you quit.

Alan Carr for the DS is another title in a line of DS game developed to help us better ourselves. Brain Training and More Brain Training have both been hugely successful and there’s also Face Training, designed to help you exercise your facial muscles.
