    Hi everybody,

    Today we announced the release date of TinyRPG: a JRPG for Apple Watch where your real life movement increases your in-game stats. Check it out:

    The game is mainly being developed by me, Emiel Kampen (Prrrpl). I'm helped out with promo-art (Sonja van Vuure) and video from freelancers (Daan vd. Brink, Jelle Kunst). We are also looking for people who want to share their (gamer) work-outs with us!

    Please let me know what you think of the concept! If you want to play an early version I aim to release a test-flight version soon. You can subscribe through https://tiny-rpg.com. If you want to learn more about this game please follow https://twitter.com/RpgTiny.

    Thanks so much for your attention.

    Sounds great. I personally prefer a stand-alone game so nothing to do with my exercise in the day

    Got loads of Apple Watch games so I’ll be checking this out when it’s released

    loving the Gameboy style box !

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts! The game is totally playable without sharing your health-data, and it'll play more like a traditional JRPG in that sense. Good to know and glad you like the GB style box :D

    What kind of “movement” are you talking about? I am sure it doesn’t involve the geographical distance with the current situation of the world.

    Hi JStorm! It's most certainly not geographical distance! TinyRPG taps into the 'activity' (or now in WatchOS6: fitness') data saved on your Apple Watch, that means certain types of activity (standing, moving, exersize) recorded though any other Work-out App can be shared with TinyRPG to get rewards that'll increase your in-game character's stats!

    Thanks for the answer.

    I watched a demonstration of your app on a watch. On the video, characters didn’t look very detailed, and also the control didn’t look very comfortable.

    If it is the workout data that is transferred from other exercise app that increases the monster stats, why not have the game part implement as an iPhone/iPad game?
