Hi folks.

I'd like to employ the hive mind for a search... I'm looking for a way to transform one-off and recurring tasks into a game (Web or Android).

I've found a couple of things online. The problem is: this is for me and not some 5 year old. Most of those sites have such an overwhelming kiddy feel I couldn't take them seriously. Also most of them are based on a system of tangible (ice cream) or at least concrete (stay up late (yay!)) rewards, which frankly don't work if I'm supposed to enforce them myself. Another somewhat promising one requires an Icrap device - so: no thanks.

What I'm looking for is something with virtual rewards. A way to document my successes in a playful way. I'm thinking something like leveling up a character or something like steam achievements when you've completed "Task X" 10 times in a row.

Does such a thing exist or do I have to write it myself?
