Turning a To-Do List Into a Game - Bits Blog - NYTimes.com

Strange days indeed

Now a new application set to begin soon for the iPhone, and later for Android. Called EpicWin, it hopes to make people’s mundane list of to-dos a game by awarding points and avatars for checking off and completing tasks.

The game seems simple enough: it allows you to set up a series of tasks, like sending an overdue e-mail, picking up dry cleaning or making it to the gym, and rewards you for completing these tasks.

As the company’s Web site explains, “ticking off your chores, completing each one improves and develops your character in an ongoing quest to level-up, gain riches and develop skills.”
