World of Riders is a hybrid online multiplayer exergame developed for virtual reality and mobile platforms. In the game, players exist as boat riders who must cooperate to defeat a massive behemoth in the center of the lake. The game play demands teamwork from players, and is designed to effectively simulate high intensity interval training (HIIT).
We presented this project at the MSU Student Design Competition in ACM CHI Play’16 and Meaningful Play’16. You can see our extended abstract here. You can also see our presentation at the CHI Play Design Competition here.
