Payback

A free online game where you can see running totals of your education debt but can also track academic focus, the connections you're making that could be useful later and your overall happiness.

The game asks players to consider graduation gifts of cash, laptop purchases, meal plans, dorm supplies, books, hours of paid work, the Greek system, vacations and more. A rapid-fire class registration challenge has dire consequences if you don’t act fast enough. All the while, you see a running total of your debt.
