EpicWin game trailer

Here's the trailer for EpicWin, the new Rex Crowle game I mentioned yesterday:

Our lives are full of quests. Remember that birthday card, send that email, or drag ourselves to the gym on a regular basis.

Trouble is, sometimes we’re having too much fun doing other virtual stuff like hunting down rare items in World of Warcraft or leveling-up in Facebook games, to remember the stuff we’re supposed to be doing.

EpicWin is an iPhone app that puts the adventure back into your life. It’s a streamlined to-do list, to note down all your everday tasks, but with a role-playing spin.

Rather than just mentally ticking off your chores, completing each one improves and develops your character in an onging quest to level-up, gain riches, and develop skills.

Watch as your avatars stats develop in ways to represent your own life. Will you be a Maiden of Juggled Priorities, or a King of Win? The lifestyle you lead will decide.
Naturally, your progress is posted to Twitter and Facebook. Via.

(Blogging is actually very much like playing a video game. Writing posts is completing quests. I keep score by looking at visitor numbers, rss numbers, inbound links and comments. Special projects such as the Super Punch tarot (and what's coming in August) are achievements.)
