Description

StepPets is a unique mobile game that combines physical activity and game play. Play a unique runner, where your steps create the levels. Help the StepPets take back their planet from Jacques, an asteroid invader from outer space, and his trusty henchmen. Play as Cooper the dog, Freya the cat, and their animal friends. Uncover hidden artifacts, unlock themes and discover giants. New pets can be unlocked with step coins, which are earned by meeting and reaching your walking goals. The more you walk the more you unlock!

History

The idea for the company started while Tim Cooley was working as a consultant for a health and wellness company. Tim approached Binoy Mohanty, a friend he met through the Entrepreneur Club at the University of Utah, with an idea to do health and wellness differently. With the help of Topher Nadauld and Eleora Nelson they decided to make video games and use health and wellness as a major component of the game experience. The original idea was to walk virtual pets, Tamagotchi style, but we learned quickly this wasn’t going to work. The team met weekly after classes and between work schedules to iterate on the original idea. After many ideas, they decided their first game, StepPets, would be a side scrolling runner with one touch mechanics. The team received early funds from Bench2Bedside and Get Seeded programs to help build the first prototype. The build allowed the team to compete as finalists in Games4Health and Bench2Bedside where they received multiple awards including funding from Zions Bank to continue the development of the game. After graduation, May 2015, the team was able to work full time on the game and company, Random Breakfast. A lot changed over the course of the summer, but the core concepts remained the same, build a fun game that used health and wellness differently. On December 1st, when StepPets launches, we will have completed this goal!
