Shady Sam, a new game created by McKinney for Next Gen Personal Finance, takes aim at predatory lenders by casting its players not as victims but as sleazy stars in an 8-bit B movie. The game uses this look and conceit to drive home the perils of predatory lending and its far-reaching and pernicious implications on people’s credit ratings as well as their ability to finance their dreams.
