Quell is on a mission to reinvent fitness gaming, combining deep, exciting gameplay with world-class fitness to burn over 600 kCal per hour.
Quell’s wearable console, the Impact, has been designed to deliver fitness gaming from the ground up, featuring real resistance, camera-less motion tracking, live biometrics and powerful haptics. Our launch game, Shardfall, sees players fighting, sprinting and leaping their way through an unforgettable fantasy world in the first ever fitness rogue-like.
Quell launches later this year and has already proven a massive audience, generating over $1.5m in preorder revenue and securing over $15m in funding from top-tier investors, including Tencent, Khosla Ventures and the founders of Twitch.
