There is a huge problem when a lot of young folks are starting their adult lives under serious debt. MTV address the issue with a game: DEBT SKI.

MTV has take the lead to talk to young people on issues as AIDS, political, social, environmental issues, and now that the economical downturn is affecting so many of them,  they created a game and a site where you can learn basic economic, budget, credit, fiscal operations just by playing.

The game is played in the http://www.indebted.com, which also delivers tips and news about the national debt (USA).


We have heard a lot about advergaming and this venture of MTV seems like a great example, specially because surpasses the only pleasure purposes and gives a good service for those playing it.
