My new game gives you bonus life (in real life)

Hi guys, I'm an Australian indie developer who is on a bit of a mission at the moment, I'm trying to release an iPhone App every week!

My third app 'Seven More Minutes' is completely inspired by Jane McGonigal's 2nd TED talk where she talk about using games to extend your life.

Essentially the whole premise of 'Seven More Minutes' is that you complete a challenge in each of the four categories (social, mental, physical and emotional) and then you earn 7 minutes and 35 seconds of bonus life at the end of your real life


It's been submitted to apple so hopefully it will be out sometime in the next 7 days. Would you play it?

My girlfriend would buy it, this is exactly like what she does in The Sims

Very clever and thoughtful. I'm definitely interested in this, and hope it does well for you.
