There are a huge number of "exergames" on the market now, but few of them get played once the initial novelty wears off. Why? They're good workout programs, but not very compelling games. In fact, many of them aren't really games at all: just interactive workout videos with a few cartoon characters.
How We're Different
We're building a browser-based RPG which turns our workout routine into a game by placing the workouts you already do (or mean to do) into an interactive storyline. So instead of training for a 5k, you're running from zombies. Earn points and power ups for consistent workouts, and play co-op challenges with friends to stay motivated.
We're doing all the design and development ourselves (conveniently, Kelly is a developer and Katherine is an illustrator), and are looking to raise money to cover both technology costs and a few packages of ramen noodles to fuel our progress.
Development of our beta is well underway, and we expect to start inviting people to the closed beta in mid-June.
