Household chores. No one likes them and it’s hard to find the motivation to get the vacuum out, the dishes done and the bathroom cleaned – especially when you would rather be playing through that big pile of games beside the TV.
But this daily hassle could be a thing of the past thanks to Rexbox and MrFungFung’s Epic Win, a forthcoming game for the iPhone/iPod Touch.
It’s an RPG which rewards the player’s avatar with experience, stat boosts and lovely virtual loot by completing everyday tasks.
Each completed task on your to-do list moves your character forward on the quest map, uncovering new and rare treasures in the process. All your hard work around the house can then be shared with friends on Facebook and Twitter.
Now I can finally put up those shelves that have been staring at me for the last month and start painting the spare room, safe in the knowledge I’ll be rewarded for my efforts. That is indeed an Epic Win!
