Ready for some otaku fitness? Well, Creative Freaks are set for the December 3.0 update to "moévation" app Burn Fat With Me. In this version of the gal game/fitness tool for iOS, Android and Amazon Kindle Fire, childhood friend Mayu Uehara puts you through the paces working your legs with some squats.
"Burn your fat with me!!" is the first in a series of "moévation" fitness apps from Japanese indie developer Creative Freaks.
Instead of just supplementing your workout, "Burn your fat with me!!" motivates you to stay on track through "moé," a Japanese term describing that special, heart-melting feeling you get when you see an adorable female anime character.
Ok, I see what you did there, but how does it work?
At its core, "Burn your fat with me!!" is a Japanese visual novel game akin to the Pheonix Wright or Professor Layton series. But instead of building a case or solving puzzles, players advance the story by working out and clearing predetermined goals, such as performing 50 sit-ups in three minutes.
The story revolves around the player's relationship with childhood friend Mayu Uehara, who also counts your repetitions and cheers you on during your workout. After all, what better way to stay motivated than the support of a cute girl?
This sounds like exactly what I need in my life!
It probably is! The current version features 15 story episodes with over 800 voiced lines, available in both English and Japanese, and plenty of original illustrations to moévate you through your sit-ups and push-ups and squat.
We've got plenty of ideas in the pipeline, so you can expect to see more content and exercises in future updates. We're a small team with limited time and resources, but we'd love to keep improving this app so long as there are people using it!
