  • Open Budgets

    We developed the online learning game, Open Budgets, for the International Budget Partnership, an umbrella organisation that offers training and knowledge resources, supporting civil society organisations around the globe with a focus on budget advocacy and monitoring.

    A scenario-based learning game, created by our digital design studio team, puts players in the imaginary country of Polarus. The player takes on the role of an intern working for SeDeN, a budget advocacy organisation. The task for the player is to investigate whether public resources are being used to fight poverty and improve the lives of poor and marginalised people. Players explore development problems, find out how government budgets affect developments and learn how to build successful strategies for change.
    The game consists of four missions which must be completed in chronological order. Players are introduced to each mission by Zuka, the director of SeDeN. In order to complete the game, players have to solve a number of puzzles and collect information offered to them throughout the gameplay.
