Karen is a life coach and she’s happy to help you work through a few things in your life.
When you begin, she asks you some questions about your outlook on the world to get an understanding of you. In fact, her questions are drawn from psychological profiling questionnaires. She – and the software – are profiling you and she gives you advice based on your answers.
Karen mixes gaming with storytelling to give you a personalised experience. Play to the end and you can buy a report on your own data, showing how the science of profiling has been applied to you.
This groundbreaking app is a new work by Blast Theory, developed in partnership with National Theatre Wales. Co-commissioned by The Space and 539 Kickstarter backers Karen has been developed with support from the Mixed Reality Lab at the University of Nottingham and in collaboration with Dr Kelly Page.

Enjoying the expereince
You could file this under "I need to get a life" but I am enjoying the experience of this app so far. I agree that the individual sessions/episodes should be longer. However, I am answering all of the questions with complete honesty and curious to see where it goes. Since it is a limited experience, I would be interested in a follow up.
I thought that I would learn mostly through self-analysis from the questions she asks, but I did expect some feedback at the end. But a lot of the questions are about sex, which isn't really helpful, and after two run-throughs, at the end, she just leaves. No answers, no final analysis at all.
So I think this is a joke app - the programmers are gathering rather personal data and either using for their own purposes or just having a laugh at whoever tries the app.
Bottom line: it's bogus. There is no life coaching at all. Don't bother, it will just waste your time and frustrate you.
Interesting... give it a try.
I’ve only been using this for a short time but I think it might be helpful. I also appreciate whoever took the time to make an app like this.
