As I was searching for games that are more than just entertainment experiences I came across a game called ‘Spent‘.
In this simple choice/consequence game you start with $1,000 and have to make it through the month whilst making very difficult day to day decisions that crop up out of the blue, just like in real life.
If you take the time to play the game, could you please answer the questions below in a comment (you do not need to be a member to comment), it would help me develop my own project.
(Please number your answers).

Questions for you –
1. What day did you make it to on your first go?
2. How did the game make you feel?
3. Do you think the game was effective and would you be more likely to help out people in need, either by volunteering or donating after playing?
4. Could you please include your age and put ‘non gamer’, ‘casual gamer’ or ‘hardcore gamer’ next to it. Example – ’26 – non gamer‘
Feel free to add any other comments after.
Thank you for your time.
Rough definitions for question 4.
Non gamer = I have tried one or two games before but wouldn’t choose or go out of my way to play them.
Casual gamer = I mostly play games socially or usually on my phone or websites such as facebook.
Hardcore gamer = I keep up with the latest gaming news, buy the latest releases day 1 when I can and play all the time.
