I suppose it was only a matter of time before someone figured out a way of combining offline activities with online ones. But who’d have expected it to be in the realm of….housework?

Yes, cleaning up around the house, yard, office, or wherever. For real. This isn’t a “make believe” you’re cleaning up; you really do it, and then get rewarded online, so you can fight monsters (Zombie Dust Bunnnies, maybe?).

This is called Chore Wars. Its purpose is to make those tedious and obnoxious hours of “straightening up the place” a little more fun. The game (is it a game?) is free, along with a premium version that goes for a one-time payment of $10.

Can’t get the kids to keep their rooms clean? Take out the trash? Help with the dishes? Mow the lawn? Maybe this could help. Or maybe not. You never know with kids.

Or adults, for that matter. Anyway, it’s certainly an interesting concept. Check out the link and see what you think about this.
