HabitRPG Helps You Level up IRL

by Hazel Chua

Can’t kick a habit (or form a new one) to save your life? Then maybe you’ll be able to do better if you take a different approach.

You know how pre-school teachers and parents always use games to teach toddlers the alphabet and how to count and all that? Well, Tyler Renelle decided to use that premise to help people who have habit-forming or habit-kicking issues by creating a habit tracking app that doubles as an RPG game called HabitRPG.

HabitRPGHabitRPG is meant to be used with time-tracking and lifestyle tools like RescueTime, Fitbit, Wunderlist, MyFitnessPal, and GCal. Your character will be able to level-up in the game with every achievement you make, while it will lose HP if you fail at a goal or break a habit you’re supposed to form. These incentives and disincentives are designed to help keep you motivated and on track.

HabitRPG is raising funds on Kickstarter through February 19, 2013 to fix bugs on their website, and to develop iOS and Android apps. A minimum pledge of $5(USD) will get you 20 tokens to be used in the game. This currency is used when you first start a game, or if you don’t meet your goals.
