Trying to Build a Game That Saves Lives:
Pacebreaker is designed to be engaging and fun – the sort of game you can play with anyone – while also being one of the most advanced frameworks for exercise and invisible coaching to ever exist. While still in the early days of our research and development, Pacebreaker is being built by the VR Institute of Health & Exercise to demonstrate technology concepts for AI-enabled exercise that could change all forms of exercise, VR and traditional, both.
Built as a multiplayer co-op experience from the ground up, Pacebreaker will also be able to adapt gameplay on the fly, adjusting difficulty, exercise intensity, and the game environment to keep you engaged and at your peak exercise performance without you even being aware of it. Pacebreaker will be our first generation of AI-Perfected Exercises where bio-feedback and artificial intelligence can change every aspect of your experience for the optimal, painless exercise. Does your heart rate need to go up? Enemies can become more aggressive. Does it go up too high, and need to rest? The game will be adjusted to slow down.
While the first builds of Pacebreaker are focused on making fun core mechanics, our hope is that it will grow into a truly revolutionary exploration of everything that VR and exercise can be beyond, "fun exercise."
