What we do

During this pandemic, many students like us are forced to stay at home. While we may not have a constant daily schedule, we are still trying to have some daily exercise. Based on this situation, our team will focus on creating exergaming experience, that players just like us will find it engaging and willing to add it in their everyday routine.


We will have self analysis as well as interview/survey for other students, to find out the motivations behind daily exercise


Based on the outcome of our research, we will build several prototypes from the questions that we would like to find answers for.


For this project, developers = playtesters! We will playtest ourselves to see if we have built the engaging experience we want.
