Habitica is a video game to help you improve real life habits. It "gamifies" your life by 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 in life, your character starts backsliding in the game.
While you can solo-play Habitica, the lights really turn on when you start collaborating, competing, and holding each other accountable. The most effective part of any self-improvement program is social accountability, and what better an environment for accountability and competition than a video game?
Fight Bosses. What's a Role Playing Game without battles? Fight bosses with your party. Bosses are "super accountability mode" - a day you miss the gym is a day the boss hurts everyone.
The iPhone & Android apps let you take care of business on the go. We realize that logging into the website to click buttons can be a drag.
Education is one of the best sectors for gamification. We all know how glued to phones and games students are these days, harness that power! Pit your students against eachother in friendly competition. Reward good behavior with rare prizes. Watch their grades and behavior soar.
Health care costs are on the rise, and something's gotta give. Hundreds of programs are built to reduce costs and improve wellness. We believe Habitica can pave a substantial path towards healthy lifestyles.
The problem with most productivity apps on the market is that they provide no incentive to continue using them. Habitica fixes this by making habit building fun! By rewarding you for your successes and penalizing you for slip-ups, Habitica provides external motivation for completing your day-to-day activities.
Whenever you reinforce a positive habit, complete a daily task, or take care of an old to-do, Habitica immediately rewards you with experience points and gold. As you gain experience, you can level up, increasing your stats and unlocking more features, like classes and pets. Gold can be spent on in-game items that change your experience or personalized rewards you've created for motivation. When even the smallest successes provide you with an immediate reward, you're less likely to procrastinate.
Whenever you indulge in a bad habit or fail to complete one of your daily tasks, you lose health. If your health drops too low, you lose some of the progress you've made. By providing immediate consequences, Habitica can help break bad habits and procrastination cycles before they cause real-world problems.
With an active community, Habitica provides the accountability you need to stay on task. With the party system, you can bring in a group of your closest friends to cheer you on. The guild system allows you to find people with similar interests or obstacles, so you can share your goals and swap tips on how to tackle your problems. In Habitica, the community means that you have both the support and the accountability you need to succeed.
