Habitica allows you to make progress on your goals by making your life a videogame. You can add your goals or habits to the app, and completing them will allow you to buy prizes, build your avatar, and level up. However, the true power of Habitica resides in its community.

You can join interest groups and play with your friends, as well as participate in different challenges. When you are in a group with your friends for example, and one of you misses a goal (like going to the gym) everyone's avatars get affected. As you can imagine, this boosts your productivity and helps to keep yourself accountable.

Additionally, there is a premium Habitica plan. For $9/month + $3/member, you can access a private taskboard and a chat area for the entire group. The group plan allows members to assign tasks to different group members, as well as claim their own tasks, which ensures everyone knows what the others are working on. Moreover, the group plan gives you in-game benefits such as special monthly equipment sets.

Quote

"This game is it. It’s adorable and easy to use. So your chores or projects or just daily habits you want to make routine are rewarded instantly. (You know us millennials with our instant gratification) This app has helped me immensely. I have moderate to severe depression which makes day-to-day habits that most people do without thinking a lot more difficult for me. So if I find something difficult, I put it in my Habitica list and it gives me an extra nudge of motivation." -iOS app user
