We're proud to announce that the Squat DLC Pack for Burn your fat with me!! is now avaliable for iOS and Android! With the release of the add-on comes a major update to the iOS version of the app, including the ability to change Mayu's costume for training mode and support for Japanese voices with English subtitles. read the rest →
Burn your fat with me!! uses the Japanese visual novel platform to provide players with the motivation to work out through moé, a Japanese term describing that special, heart-melting feeling you get when you see an adorable female character. We call it moévation.
After all, what better way to stay motivated than the support of a cute girl?
Players train in real life by doing sit-ups, push-ups, and squats with the help of childhood friend Mayu Uehara. The story is progressed by clearing preset fitness goals, such as performing 50 sit-ups in three minutes. As the story advances, you become closer with Mayu, but the goals also become more demanding. Clearing the story may take several months of training, but stick with it and you’ll have something to show for in the real world as well!
Featuring 20 episodes and over 1,000 fully-voiced lines, Story Mode is divided into episodes that follow your relationship with Mayu as she continues to push you further in your training. Each episode contains a fitness goal that must be cleared to advance the story, each goal being more challenging than the last.
It is important that you train regularly if you want to be able to clear some of the more difficult goals. Use Training Mode to excercise with Mayu until you're ready to tackle the next Story Mode goal.
Using training mode will also earn you Moévation Points, which can be used to unlock bonus content, such as voiced lines for Training Mode or new story episodes.
Your childhood friend, estranged after you moved during grade school. The two of you are reunited after being placed in the same homeroom class during your 2nd year of high school. She’s quick to overreact and gets jealous even quicker. She enjoys watching sports teams practice after school, though she doesn’t belong to any clubs herself.
A first-year student at your school. Despite her girlish appearance, she is a tomboy at heart and her assertive, outspoken and often cynical manner tends to intimidate those around her. She belongs to the track and field club and enjoys playing video games.
A third-year student and one of the most recognized names at your school. Class president and member of the school’s gymnastics club, she has excellent reflexes and does very well academically, though you’d do well not to mention her short stature. She’s soft-spoken and a bit of an airhead, but pulls through when the situation demands it.
The iOS version and Android contain English, Japanese, and Japanese voices with English subtitles. That means both the original Japanese app, Nensho!, and Burn your fat with me!! are now one and the same!
To unlock the push-ups and squats excercise module, you must purchase the corresponding add-on. Each add-on comes with an additional four story episodes and new voiced lines that Mayu will randomly say during training.
Nope! While there might be some suggestive scenes, the app is 100% family-friendly. Not that we recommend playing it with your family. That would still be a little awkward.
The max number of reps in Timed Training Mode are restricted to the highest number of reps completed during story mode. For example, clearing the 20 rep goal in Episode 2 will allow you raise the max number of target reps in Timed Training Mode from 10 to 20. This restriction is in place to prevent players from spamming reps to earn Moévation Points (MP). There is no rep restriction for Free Training Mode, but you are also unable to earn MP.
Tempo is key! Taking a rest in the middle of your workout will net you fewer MP than if you keep a steady pace; try and aim for one rep every 2-3 seconds. Training for consecutive days will also increase your overall MP earned per workout. You can also score bonus MP by posting your training results to Twitter.
“Senpai” is a Japanese term that can roughly be translated as “one’s senior” and is used in when speaking to someone of higher social status in a group. In this case, the player is a grade ahead of Yuki and therefore her senior.
Burn your fat with me!! is a labor of love. Everyone on our five-person team holds seperate full-time jobs and we work on the app only in our spare time. The entire project was initially funded from our own pockets, and nearly all of the earnings go toward supporting this and future apps (voice actor fees, convention fees, promotion, etc). Think of it as a donation that allows us to keep making more and better apps.
We currently have two apps in the pipeline. The first is Burn your fat with me!! 2, a running app featuring Yuki Hashio as the female protagonist. The second is Burn your heart with me!!, a spinoff of the first app targeted towards female players featuring an all new setting and cast. We hope to release both apps by the end of 2013.
