My philosophy is: If you can’t have fun, there’s no sense in doing it.
~Paul Walker (Brainy Quotes)
Reading a comment thread in the Fit Fatties Facebook group, I found a mention of Run An Empire. It’s a running game app (app game? story app? “strategy running game”), similar to Zombies, Run!. The difference being, from what I can see — it’s still in closed beta, instead of earning items to build up your virtual zombie compound, you actually capture & defend the real world space you run through.
So instead of playing against fictional creatures & bad guys, you are defending against real world people in your environment. Sounds like it’s going to be one of those apps that works best in large areas where you’ll have plenty of other people using the app; similar to Ingress. Is anyone playing that? I have started it, but not done much. Since the weather is finally turning pleasant, I plan to get out & do more with it.
Here’s a Mashable list I found of fitness apps. There is another running game called Missile Wars that sounds interesting (iOS only).
