I really like the mix of earning points by running and by engaging with the game on the days between runs. It means that unlike tracking apps like Strava, I'm opening the game every day to invest my coins, which then causes me to think more about my next run, and motivates me to get out the door again. The best thing about it, though, is it encourages me to take routes I've never run before, and so I've discovered lots of back streets and hidden paths I wouldn't have otherwise found.


Great gaming mechanics and incredibly addictive


Would love to see more interaction with other players

Thanks Andrew! This is really great.
This sounds so cool! Will try it at my next runs today and tomorrow! Apple Watch App to earn coins while running with the watch only would be a long term motivation for me. Normally i leave my phone at home and run with the Runtastic Apple Watch App. But will take my phone with me to test this cool project!!

@kaiburghardt Thanks Kai - you can run with Strava on your apple watch and it will upload to Run An Empire. We are working on an apple watch version too. Happy running.
I absolutely love this game, it's so addicting! I'm going out daily now for at least an hour trying to capture new territories and castles. I'm exploring parts of my city that I have never gone before just to get new land. This is the motivation I needed to get myself back onto a healthy track while still having fun doing something I like.

@kerry_milauskas Thanks Kerry! Really glad you're enjoying it.
Pros: I really wanted to like this product. Back in the day, I was a Nike+ iPod runner with the shoe pedometer. The sense of community and competition drove me to run further and faster than I would have. Cons: I never got past the initial onbording screen. There was no obvious UI affordable to continue.

I love using Run an Empire, it motivates me to go out running but I also switch it on when I'm out for a long walk. Any opportunity to try and catch a castle! I've really enjoyed watching this product evolve from beta to the beautiful game it is now.
