Thanks for all the positive feedback and suggestions! We've been discussing plans for some huge developments to make this game a true RPG with storyline and all. Please help support us on Kickstarter to make this game the best it can possibly be.
Get more out of your healthy lifestyle. Transform your Fitbit data into a character that can fight your friends, battle bosses, and go on quests using the steps, distance, and sleep tracked by your Fitbit! If you’re tired of seeing just numbers and graphs at the end of the day, or if looking at the Fitbit dashboard isn’t enough to motivate you to walk those extra 1000 steps, play FitRPG, a game that rewards you for your healthy habits.
FitRPG turns your fitness data into your character’s strength, HP, endurance, dexterity, and experience. Go on fitness quests or engage in battles to level up. Sleep to revitalize your HP. Log workouts to increase your strength and dexterity. Increase your steps to improve your experience and endurance. Take fitness to another level, literally.
- Competitive? Battle your Fitbit friends to steal their gold and experience. Most fit player wins. See how you rank against other players in the leaderboard.
- Want motivation? Go on timed solo quests, which range from walking 5,000 steps to running a marathon. Win gold and experience if you succeed. Lose gold if you fail.
- Love gaming? Try to fly up through the rankings by beating the bosses and continuing to level up.
- Use your gold to buy weapons, potions, armor, and other accessories. Use potions to restore HP, and equip weapons to improve your chances at winning battles against your friends.
- Just sign in with your Fitbit account, and immediately start playing!
- No ads or annoying pop-ups.
- Integration with Jawbone and other fitness trackers, coming soon!
- More quests (and group quests with friends!) to come.
What's New in Version 1.0.7
So much potential!
Love the concept, but the execution needs work: 1. I have about eight battles with strangers "pending," but I have no idea when/if/how any of them will turn into actual battles. 2. Ever since I got to level 6 (and I'm now at 7), there have been no "bosses" to fight, no new items/weapons/armor to buy, and thus nothing that I can actually do other than to passively increase experience points. 3. The instructions said that quests I completed would be available again after a week and more than a week has passed, but they haven't regenerated. 4. One of the first quests I signed up for, the first day I downloaded the app, has never showed any progress towards completion, and will not allow me to press the completion button. 5. The lack of storyline is actually a pretty minor problem compared to those listed
above. If these basic operating problems were fixed, storyline or not, I would absolutely give this app 5 stars.
Awesome motivation for lazies like me!
With terrible ADHD and a predisposition for laziness, it's tough for me to get motivated and active. I also recently lost my job (pause for pity party), so I'm kind of hanging around my house aimlessly until I find another. I just got a FitBit and love it, but it's hard for me to remember to take the time out to log activity, food, sleep, etc. There's no better way to motivate a 25 year-old child than to make something into a game. You don't even need to be a gamer nerd like me; if you need more concrete rewards everyday than just the knowledge that getting active is good for you, this app is the perfect solution. I only downloaded this app today, but it gets 5 stars already for the idea and design aesthetic (hey, I like pretty things). Thanks for thinking of the lazies like me who need just a little bit more motivation to get moving!
This is just what I need. Or the last thing I need. Not sure yet...
Just installed app, but I am impressed with the premise when combined with the minimalistic design and layout thus far. Have already jumped in and completed some step and distance challenges and "battled" some bosses. If I do end up hooked and check in regularly, I am pretty sure this game, erm, app, will remind me to log my sleep and motivate me to squeeze in a strength training session more often. It will be great to also have calories in/out end up meaning something in the game, as when it comes to remembering to log my sleep and my meals I am usually naught-for-two. But remembering to log into the game regularly may be the Catch-22. Only time will tell.
