Spent Game Reaches One Million Plays

Press Releases

Spent, the online game which challenges players to survive on $1,000 a month, has been played over one million times in nearly 200 countries worldwide since its February launch.

On August 31, to mark this important milestone, and just in time for Labor Day, UMD and McKinney launched a petition to the U.S. Congress inviting them to take the challenge by playing the game Spent.

We hope that the experience will give policy makers a glimpse of some of the real hardships facing Americans today and perhaps spur them to work more cohesively and expeditiously toward solutions for getting folks back to work.
