Dear Quell Backers,
And that’s a wrap on February! That means we’re one month closer to launch, and that it’s time for another update…
This month has been a busy one. We’re staying true to our standards of excellence as the team continues to grow, bringing more experts into our game and marketing teams, while continuing to push every aspect of the Gauntlet (our unique resistance-adding wearable, for the uninitiated) to the next level.
Lockdown continues to challenge all of us, but through the amazing spirit and attitude of the team, Quell is continuing to grow every single day. So what’s new this month?
Haptics Stretch Goal Almost Reached!
You asked, and we listened—more than a few backers messaged us during Kickstarter to support the inclusion of haptics in Quell, so we hope you’ll be pleased to hear that our testing is going to plan, and we think we’ve found the perfect way to get them into the finished product. All that’s left is a final push to get us over the $750k funding goal we set to officially include haptics, meaning we can produce enough units to hit those all-important order volumes! There’s less than $19k to go now, and with your help, we can do this. Tell your friends!
New Game Feature Experiments Are Running
Alongside the core combat experience, we’ve been experimenting with a variety of other movements and exercises that we’d like to incorporate into the game. Though we can’t share too much on this right now, below is a snap of the game team showing off the latest build to the rest of us—we wish we could say more, but can assure you it was super-exciting to watch!
Have thoughts on an exercise or action you’d like to see in Quell? Well jump on the Discord and drop our team a message! We love working with the community to keep pushing the passion and creativity that goes into Quell.
The Team Picks Up Speed
Hot on the heels of Rob and Mickey joining as our art and technical directors last month, February has seen us welcome Alex, Diego, Albert, Sandy & Sandra to the Quell marketing and development teams! We’ll be introducing them all individually on our Instagram over the coming weeks, and we’re so excited to have them bringing their experience and energy to our team!
Latest Community Challenge Winners
Congrats to Lydia and Mondy for coming out on top of the latest Quell community challenge!
For our most recent challenge, the community pushed each other to complete the most squats—as usual being scored on their one-rep max and improvement over the 4 weeks. Lydia managed an amazing 693 squats in one set, whilst Mondy made a hugely impressive 650% gain throughout the month!
This month we’ve got a sit-up challenge in session. Ready to step-up?
Quell joins the London Sport Tech Hub
Earlier this month we were excited to hear from London Sport, who have invited us to join their Sports Tech Hub—a who’s who of the top fitness tech start-ups based within the UK right now. The STH community features major fit-tech disruptors such as Gympass, FIIT and Sweatcoin, and a mere 6 months on from our Kickstarter campaign it feels great to be joining their ranks.
How You Can Help
Future User Testing & Research
We’re gearing up for another round of user testing and research here in London this Spring. For this, we’ll require a mix of our existing backer community and new arrivals to Quell. Are you based close to London and interested in getting involved? Simply register here and we’ll be in touch when the time comes!
