Support to deal with symptoms/disabilities
Role-playing game (RPG) that motivates the user into having good personal habits by offering ‘virtual’ rewards. Habits and tasks that need to be encouraged and carried out can be specified, as can be the bad habits that should be avoided (such as eating junk food, or smoking). Points are gained in the game by completing good tasks/habits, and ‘health’ points lost if these tasks are not carried out properly, or if the user lapses into the bad habits. The game is played on successive levels, according to the success at completing the good personal habits.

Reviewer: Person with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Norway.
Review: “HabitRPG is a productivity app in which you get to insert your own metrics to measure yourself against. So, for example, as I have a connective tissue disorder, I need to ensure that my joints don’t get stiff. So, regular stretching is one of my metrics. Eating a certain amount of fruit per week is another. I get role-playing game (RPG) videogame-style rewards (experience points; avatar upgrades) for successfully completing these metrics each day/week/month.”
