Gaming is a lot of fun but as you get older, sometimes you just don’t have the time and the time you do have, you just want to sleep and watch Netflix. The new mobile “game” Dreeps is really just an app that encourages you to sleep more cleverly disguised as a RPG.
Dreep is billed as a game but it’s really an innovative alarm clock. Instead of just waking you up, it wakes up a little robot hero that then goes throughout his day defeating bad guys and having adventures. Kind of like what you do with your day. You don’t interact with the game throughout the day. It just plays along in the background while you plug away at your day gig.
The beauty of this is that it forces you to sleep. You set an alarm before you shut it down and the robot boy rests up and gains HP (just like you!) but if he doesn’t get enough sleep, he doesn’t have enough energy to make it through the day. Just like you. Dreeps is a fee app for iPhone.
