With the worldwide stressfulness factor at an ultimate high — a study done by APA showed that 75% of adults experienced at least a moderate level of stress in the past month, inserting relaxing and playful experiences into our burdensome daily lives has become a long-desired yearning of many.

Do you know which activity was scientifically proven to reduce the stress hormone levels by 17%? Playing video games. If this simple free-time activity has the power to relieve stress built throughout the day, imagine how rewarding it would be if our demanding everyday lives could suddenly become as thrilling and enjoyable as the life of a player character in a video game, always full of fun challenges, exciting missions and pleasurable achievements?

Well, get ready for the rush of adrenaline to start flowing through your body as the Futourist platform will utilize gamification to make your lives exponentially more exciting, joyous and stress-free, easing up your daily searches for places, bettering your travel experiences and rewarding your helpful contributions to the world.
