Does your room look messy all the time? Do you have a hard time convincing your kids to do the dishes? Oddly enough, there is an Alternative Reality Game for that. In Chore Wars, you’re not only taking the garbage out or cleaning up the toilet seat – you’re also leveling up and slaying deadly beasts.
I feel that Chore Wars, among with other ARGs, is a prime example of people using media to change their reality, to make it more epic.
This peculiar, if already quite dated-looking little game can be found here.
