Habitica

Written by

Habitica helps you improve your day-to-day habits by gamifying your life and turning all your tasks (habits, dailies, and to-dos) into little monsters you have to conquer. The better you are at this, the more you progress in the game. If you slip up, your character starts backsliding in the game. Create a custom avatar, and input your Habits, your Daily goals, and your To-Do list. Check off tasks to level up your avatar and unlock features such as armor, pets, skills, and quests. Fight monsters with friends to keep each other accountable, and use your gold on in-game rewards, like equipment, or custom awards, like watching an episode of your favorite TV show. Habitica makes it simple to have fun while accomplishing goals.
