The Amazing Life Of...

Teaching Generation X personal finance and life skills.

Challenge

Children struggle with financial literacy concepts because they don’t see these concepts as relevant to their lives. Yet, these are some of the most important skills to know as a young adult, especially in a country like South Africa, whose society is facing massive challenges with debt and savings.

Approach

Co-creating an engaging concept and gameplay mechanics with high-school learners in South African schools, by tapping into their aspirations and simulating real-world financial decision-making into an awesome adaptive learning game.

OUTPUT

Phase 1

Game concepts were created and tested with our target audience.

Phase 2

Financial products, including unit trusts, shares and managing a business were simulated to create ‘real-world’ conditions in a quest-based game format.

Phase 3

We collaborated with an acclaimed novelist to develop the game’s character and the scripts for various quests to ultimately reach your dreams and live your best life. 

Phase 4

The game was tested, validated and loved by our target audience. Next step is wide-scale rollout and global financial literacy domination!
