Google Cast-Compatible iOS/Android Fitness game, “FitFlap” — Coming this Year
LYON, FRANCE – June 1, 2015 – Independent game studio BreakFirst today announced that its motion-controlled fitness title FitFlap , presented at Google I/O 2015 last week as part of the event’s line-up of innovative new games, will be coming to Android and iOS later this year. Google selected FitFlap as a successful early adopter of the Google Cast Remote Display API, with the game making use of a device’s (phone or tablet) built-in camera to deliver body tracking and responsive motion-controlled gameplay. As players move, their device transfers the data to the Chromecast-equipped TV, showing the player as they attempt to fly through various obstacles by flapping their arms. FitFlap will be released for Android and iOS devices later this year.
FitFlap is a one-of-a-kind fun fitness experience in which players take active responsibility for the weight loss – or gain – of their in-game characters, and maybe burn a few calories themselves in the process. In the game, players physically flap their arms to flutter their way through a series of colorful challenges and really get that heart pumping.
Using BreakFirst’s proprietary motion-tracking technology and devices’ built-in cameras, FitFlap precisely follows the player’s physical movements and translates them into distance flown, height reached and ultimately — calories burned. But don’t even think about cheating – this smart game can tell the difference between half-baked hand wiggling and real hard arm flapping. Do Flap! Get Fit!
