SPENT

SPENT is a Game style visualization launched in February 2011 by McKinney, an advertising agency, and the Urban Ministries of Durham, a private non-profit organization. The motto is simple, or not: Could you live on $1,000 a month? This game lets the user, in this case the player, make the everyday choices necessary to get by on a tight income. First the user has to choose a job, such as waiter at a restaurant or temporary typist, and that means different rates of pay. Then the user is presented with everyday choices: what food to buy, whether or not to pay for the car insurance, etc.
