Through the use of the iPhone’s new M7 chip, in conjunction with iBeacon Bluetooth devices, we created an iPhone role-playing game that is meant to encourage players to have a healthier lifestyle. The player engages in a real world role-playing game experience where the way they exercise in reality impacts their digital avatar’s traits and abilities. The goal of this game is to encourage exercise through in-game benefits to the player’s character, with the hope of eventually changing the player’s lifestyle to incorporate more exercise.
