Visual Studio Achievements

Spawned from a popular blog post, this new add-in for Visual Studio brings gamification to everday work job to serve as a relaxing distraction from mundane code crunching. Even though most of the originally proposed achievements were cynical comment on the fact that there is so much bad code written today, and in that sense you do not want to achieve those “anti-achievements”, the actual list contains fun facts about the projects you happen to load inside your Visual Studio.

There is an excellent post at Ars Technica, check it out. The VS is portrayed as an expensive game in its Ultimate edition, comparing builds with spells and portraying compiler and linker as dungeon masters.

Download it from Visual Studio Gallery.
