Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to know anything to use Quell?

No knowledge or experience necessary. Quell builds a session tailored to your fitness level and goals every time you play, so you can focus on the immersive gameplay. No planning, no reading, no stress.

How effective is Quell’s exercise?

Our user testers burned more calories playing Quell than running, cycling or going to the gym. Quell also gives you a full-body workout, including shoulders, arms, chest, core, back, and legs. You can adjust the resistance bands to focus more on building strength or endurance. Whatever your fitness goals, Quell will give you an incredible, immersive workout.

How tough is a Quell session?

Quell’s difficulty is fully customised to you, whether you’re a fitness fanatic or just getting started on your journey. We use your biometrics to set gameplay challenges and recommend the perfect resistance. As you get stronger, the game gets harder, keeping the level just right for you.

Can I wash the wearable?

The wearable is made with 100% machine washable, hygienic fabrics. Just throw it in the wash between sessions and come back to a fresh kit.

Is Quell safe for beginners?

We consulted physiotherapists and boxers to build safety into every aspect of the design. For example, the resistance bands are anchored below the wrist to avoid common boxing injuries.

As with any vigorous physical activity, we recommend contacting your healthcare provider to discuss any medical issues.

Will you be releasing multiple games?

We plan to develop a vast catalogue of games spanning many genres, worlds and exercise styles. We’ll also support our launch title with years of new content in response to player feedback.

How does Quell work?

The Quell wearable features state-of-the-art sensor arrays which understand your motions in real-time and send this data wirelessly to the game on your PC, immersing you in the game world. The wearable also provides powerful haptic feedback. You can connect your PC to a TV for the big-screen experience.

When will I receive my Quell?

We’re aiming to launch batch one in Q4 of this year. After that, we’ll be releasing a new batch every quarter. There’s still some space left in batch one, so order now to guarantee you get it first!

What platforms is Quell launching on?

Quell will launch on PC, followed by Mac, iOS and Android. Over time, we’ll explore VR and console versions based on community input.

What else do I need to play Quell?

All you need is a Windows PC or laptop, and a TV if you want to play on a larger screen. Everything else comes in the box! We’ve designed Quell to run smoothly even on low-end machines.

Will the wearable fit me?

We’ve designed Quell to accommodate a wide range of shapes and sizes, with carefully considered adjustment points to get you the perfect fit.

What is Quell+?

Quell+ is our optional premium subscription, which will help us deliver amazing updates including new enemies, worlds, workouts, exercise analysis, and game modes. As a thanks for being a pre-order customer, you’ll get at least three months completely free. If it’s not for you, you can cancel at any time and still play the full game. We’ll be releasing more details on Quell+ soon.

Will multiplayer be available in the game?

Social play is a central part of our vision for Quell. We’re developing these experiences now, with plans to build online and local multiplayer for modes spanning competitive and cooperative play. We’ll be releasing more details in the near future.

Can multiple players use one Quell system?

Quell will support multiple user accounts on the same device, but to play against your friends you’ll obviously need your own device. Check out the Quell Duo Edition for a fantastic deal on two devices.

How do I update my shipping address?

We will reach out to all customers in the run-up to launch to confirm delivery addresses. If you’ve moved since you purchased Quell, you’ll be able to update your address then.

What fighting styles does Quell feature?

Quell’s combat is built on the foundations of boxing, but incorporates influences from other fighting styles as well as impactful non-combat fitness moves, like thrusting your arms forward to fire an ice blast. We’ll continue to update the game with new moves in response to player feedback.

What PC specs will I need to play?

Quell will be optimised to run smoothly on mid-range laptops. We’ll be releasing more detailed technical specifications in the coming months.

Is Quell open to third-party developers?

Our ambition is to eventually open up the Quell hardware to all developers, allowing them to build amazing new experiences. At this stage, we’re focused on making incredibly high-quality first-party content.

Will you be releasing leg additions?

Quell’s gameplay and upper-body wearable provide a full-body workout, including all major muscle groups. We’ll be exploring the addition of leg resistance as part of our post-launch roadmap.
