This work describes the development and use of a serious game aimed at children and adolescents with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). It aimed to contribute to the promotion of self-care in this population. This is a descriptive and exploratory field research, with a qualitative approach, associated with a mode of technological production of an experimental nature. It comprised two phases: the development of the app and its use. The using process was performed in two units, for child and youth dialysis, located in Goiânia-Goiás. The sample had eight patients, their relatives and a care team. The collection of data was in three steps and were used as instruments: document analysis, interview and observation. In the intervention stage, the game was made available to patients for sixty days, forty minutes a day, during their hemodialysis sessions. For analysis of the data, it was opted for the method of Content Analysis through the modality thematic analysis with the aid the software ATLAS. 7.5.1. The data allowed defining the following categories: Motivation, Perception of the clinical condition of the character, Perception of care, Potentiality for the learning and Impact of the game on self-care. The analysis indicated that the game generated motivation due to its simple interface and easy operation. The self-identification with the clinical condition of the character allowed children to exercise care and reflect about inherent conditioning of the CKD, but has no proof on the impact of the game in the promotion of self-care. Factors such as age and family habits were considered difficulties. Although the study has demonstrated that the app is a feasible tool for the teaching process, it is believed that it is necessary to develop new resources in the game and to carry out new interventions, with the participation of the family and the assistance team, to strengthen self-care actions in this population.
