New Facebook game aims at teaching young adults financial responsibility

Posted: Updated:

An up-and-coming Facebook game aims at entertaining young adults while also teaching them about maintaining their finances.

According to Mashable.com, the game known as "Kicked Out" will teach teens and people in their early twenties how to manage their resources after they are kicked out of their parent's home.

Once out in the virtual imitation of the "real world," players will learn to manage their finances and attempt to avoid debt traps.

The creator of the game met with debt experts in her native Austria to get inspiration for the game. During her research, she was told that people between the ages of 18 and 24 are the fastest growing group declaring bankruptcy.

The game is still seeking funding for its launch.
