Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Digital Design / Websites / 2012

Think you can pull yourself out of poverty? ‘Spent’ is a game that makes you prove it. Start with $1,000 and make it through one month, while facing some tough choices. Feed your family or keep the lights on? Lose a day’s pay or send your sick child to school? Get a tooth fixed or ignore the pain? In some challenges, you can avoid losing money by posting Facebook updates like: ‘I can’t pay all my bills this month. Can I borrow some money?’ and ‘We got evicted. Can we crash at your place?’ Can you make it through the month and keep your dignity intact? Find out at playspent.org.
