My Health Coach: The Easyway to Stop Smoking is exactly what it sounds like. It's a game for the Nintendo DS meant to help smokers quit smoking. Ubisoft worked with Allen Carr who world renowned guru that has help millions quit smoking with his methods. There will be 15 games on this, um, game that will help smokers lose the illusion that they need nicotine. The game will be out this November.

I was going to have a little rant here about how this is just such obvious attempt at pulling in some easy cash. Instead, I'm just going to point out that the Fact Sheet that came with this announcement says this game is rated E/3+. Yep.

UBISOFT AND ALLEN CARR'S EASYWAY TEAM UP TO HELP SMOKERS QUIT

Ubisoft to Bring Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking to the Nintendo DS(TM) system in November 2008

SAN FRANCISCO – May 28, 2008 – Today Ubisoft announced that it will develop and publish the video game based on the successful Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking method. Designed for Nintendo DS(TM), Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking is scheduled for release in November 2008.

Published in 50 countries, Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking book is an international best seller, and Allen Carr's Easyway network of clinics spans the globe. Over 10 million smokers worldwide have already turned to Allen Carr's Easyway books, clinics or DVD in order to stop smoking. The method removes the smoker's belief that smoking provides them with any genuine pleasure or crutch, takes away the feeling of deprivation and therefore rids the smoker of the fear of stopping. The clinics offer a full money-back guarantee based on which the success rate after 3 months is over 90% and independent scientific studies confirm a success rate of over 50% after 12 months.

Brought to an exciting interactive platform, Nintendo DS, Allen Carr's Easyway method will take on a whole new dimension. Players will be actively participating in the game's content as they input the details of their smoking habits and even select their own Allen Carr's Easyway coach to take them through the process of quitting.

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

"Ubisoft's creative team has worked hard to deliver a game that successfully communicates Allen Carr's Easyway method via play," said Christian Salomon, vice president of worldwide licensing at Ubisoft. "The player experiences a truly interactive engagement with the game through which he or she learns that it can actually be enjoyable to quit smoking."

Robin Hayley, managing director of Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking, concurs. "There was an amazing synergy between Allen Carr's Easyway team and Ubisoft as we worked on this project," he said. "Our experts worked hand in hand with the Ubisoft team to create an entertaining and illuminating game that delivers Allen Carr's Easyway method in a new, dynamic and highly effective way."
