Created by and for low-income adults to teach better financial literacy.
Created by and for low-income adults with inspiration from the world’s two most popular games (Bejeweled and Farmville), Farm Blitz combines elements of both titles to simulate the process of creating good savings habits and avoiding the pitfalls of accumulating too much debt.
Financial Entertainment is an engaging new media that teaches consumers how to better manage their money. It is the brainchild of the Doorways to Dreams Fund (D2D), a nonprofit organization that provides innovative financial education to improve the lives of Americans.
Celebrity Calamity, our first financial entertainment product, is a video game that’s fun to play and gives players valuable financial information they can use in daily life. In this game, players become the Business Manager for three up-and-coming celebrities—Alice Albudget, Buster Buyin, and Missy Moolah—who spend beyond their means. Players must effectively use a bank account, debit card, and credit card to be successful.
D2D is working on three more games, including Groove Nation, the first ever dance-budgeting casual game. We create these games using a collaborative development process that integrates audience feedback into the game design. In addition, feedback is incorporated from professional game designers, financial education.
