is a game, currently in beta, that takes a "choose-your-own-adventure" approach to motivating you to improve your health.
The gameplay, in a nutshell, goes like this:
You design your own rules and goals for staying healthy. The rules can be anything you want, from exercising to eating to positive thinking. You log your results every day. If you haven't followed your rules, you lose life points. If you do really well, however, you're rewarded with fruits which you can then use to either heal yourself or friends who might not be doing so hot. Your rules are reset every month, and you can choose to roll over your performance, or create new rules. As an added bonus, you'll get lots of geektastic stats on your behaviour throughout the month.
