The aim of the game is also to highlight the importance of hydrating during any form of exercise. The game’s goal is to mimic a runner going for a run and aims at engaging the users by developing a game that is fun and challenging.

Game Idea Synthesis

The idea of the game ignited from a personal experience. As someone who is regularly active, for many years, exercising did not energise me but rather made me feel tired and exhausted. After exercising, I found myself eating much more than I would usually as my appetite peaked. This had discouraged me many times to stop exercising as it did not make me feel good. I decided to change the way I was exercising and switched to Martial Arts with the idea that this will energise me more and make me more active in my life. However, I found myself losing motivation again due to tiredness and fatigueness that I felt the night of and the morning after the sessions. I decided to speak to a doctor and pinpoint the problem. The doctor highlighted to me that I should not be exceeding a certain limit for my heartrate and should keep it monitored throughout the entire work out. The doctor also mentioned that the tiredness and fatigueness came from overworking and tiring my body. This advice aided me widely in feeling better and I wish to pass this advice on.
