Video game will aim to educate youth about national debt
Moore said reducing the national debt and controlling entitlement spending is a very bipartisan issue, which is why the pair hopes their game will attract youth from both sides of the aisle. Heis said it would be similar in feel to the SimCity games developed by Maxis in the 1990s while challenging users to help reduce the debt by paying “their share,” or $201,000.
Once they secure financing, Heis said, developing the game should take a few months. He said he hoped to have the game released by December at the latest, in time for the release of the report from President Barack Obama’s debt commission.
