This looks quite interesting.  I’m going to have to try it out.  On a similar vein, I started (but kind of stalled) working on my own gamification for learning Emacs (available on MELPA):


Right now it’s only achievements (and I didn’t have any plans of anything else like experience).  I need to write more achievements to unlock (suggestions greatly welcome—especially org related), and I think it might be cool to integrate with org-gamify to offer a richer experience.
