Indonesia’s first online financial management service, NgaturDuit.com, recently launched “Rich Game” to educate users on financial matters, especially on investment in Indonesia. In the game, the various economic challenges users face will act as a simulation for various situations.
Rich Game aims to educate users on broad range of finance topics, such as savings, deposits, insurance, trusts, bullion, stocks, and futures. The online game has received funding support from USAID through the SEADI program, aiming to fight the financial illiteracy in Indonesia.
Personally, I had some difficulty in finding where I could play the game. Looking through NgaturDuit.com website and blog didn’t help much, but finally I managed to find it on Facebook. Currently the game has 300 active users at the time of writing.
Like many other Facebook games, Rich Game uses simple Flash animation. We need to complete missions to reach the next levels. I didn’t find the game to be very entertaining or engaging, perhaps because it heavily relies on loads of texts to explain the various financial products available. I think most Indonesians will agree with me here that we like more action rather than texts in our games.
Below are some screenshots from the game. It’s in Indonesian.
