HabitRPG Makes Resolution Keeping a Game

HabitRPG is a free web-based tool that makes enforcing new habits and keeping resolutions fun by turning your list of habits, to-dos, and daily routines into an old-school Role Playing Game (RPG).

You set the game up by inputting positive habits you want to cultivate, negative habits you wan to exterminate, daily goals, to-do list items, and a reward system. As you foster your good habits and meet your goals you get rewards (experience for your character and gold for your goals) and when you engage in your bad habits your character loses health.

If you’re looking for a novel way to track your goals and enjoy a little RPG nostalgia along the way, hit up the link below to take the free service for a spin.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    This looks awesome. I’ve recently started up some new habits using the “Streak/Seinfeld” method. I use Habit Streak on Android (

    But this is so much more down my alley. It’s unfortunate that there isn’t a mobile app yet, but the site design scales to mobile very well.

    I’ll stick to World of Warcraft :-)
