EPICWIN Productivity App

This thing I linked to before somewhere is now available in the iTunes store:

It attempts to realize the old dream of converting the effort and concentration given to addictive games into real-life work. I can see how it just might work from the demo, with the in-game personal enhancements and random rewards that cause my best friends in the whole world to exclaim "The fishing part of WoW is fun!"

Does the time invested playing the game significantly offset any productivity gains? Is it fun? Is it fun enough? I don't know! I'm downloading it now! I'll let you know!

HOLY FUCK! I am all over this. I'll let you know from a veteran's perspective. Love the instant recog of the theme music playing in the background of the sim RPG game in the beginning.

So this thing could be better. It's basically a list, with fun animation, and nice graphics. I'm more addicted to my work than this, which is essentially a skinned to-do list. Still. Nice idea.

I am not as addicted to this app as I thought I would be.
