Hardcore gamers trying to strike the correct game-life balance should check out EpicWin, coming soon to the app store.
It’s a ‘to-do’ list in which you record your daily errands and chores, but it’s also an RPG, where completing these tasks gives you XP and loot. Your avatar’s stats will apparently develop according to the kind of real-life tasks you perform. In the developers’ own words:
‘By getting points for your chores it’s easier to actually get things done. We all have good intentions but we need a bit of encouragement here and there. Doing the laundry is an epic feat of stamina so why not get stamina points for it?! Watch as your avatars stats develop in ways to represent your own life. Will you be a Maiden of Juggled Priorities, or a King of Win? The lifestyle you lead will decide.’
You can also share your progress via Twitter and Facebook. Question is, however, whether users will end up fussing with their character’s stats and items instead of doing the dishes?
