Gamification is gaining in popularity and is increasingly showing po-tential to benefit humans. Numerous applications have been developed but more research is required on the key motivational factors responsible for user adher-ence. The purpose of this research is to investigate strategies to encourage people in adopting a healthy lifestyle using gamification and identifying the key factors responsible for retaining users. The research will not be limited to certain activi-ties such as gym or sports but motivates people to emphasize on small activities, for example, doing household work, walking and many others. This research en-deavors to develop an application using Unity and C# which is a real-time plat-form supported by iOS and Android. The research focuses on Behavior Change Techniques and Self-Determination Theory to tackle the issue of user adherence.
