Can a game get you walking your pet, even if it’s a virtual pet? U MBA student and co-founder of StepPets, Tim Cooley, is developing a game where players compete with pets they earn by walking more and more each day. The players earn, raise and train their virtual pets in a fun and exciting tournament. “We started the game as a way to walk a virtual pet, and it has evolved into something much better but still has that element,” Cooley said. He is joined by Topher Nadauld, Binoy Mohanty — both Entertainment Arts and Engineering graduate students at the U — and Eleora Nelson, a local Salt Lake City artist. They have raised $5,500 through the U’s Get Seeded and Bench-to-Bedside programs. More at steppets.co.
