Redefining Tertiary Education via the Realm of Mobile Gaming

Looking for: Advisor, Designer, Developer, Engineer

 For too long, the teaching of Free Market Economics have been the purview of Higher Education Centers who charge too much, conduct classes that are overly long and employ over paid lecturers to conduct the courses. 

 This is completely unnecessary.   At its heart, Free Market Economics is simple, and easy to grasp. Anyone with serious economic resonsibilities should learn it as it explains why interest rates are going up and down, what affects government spending and taxation, and what people in suits discuss all day long on business channels like Bloomberg and CNBC. 

 'Fat-Cat Bankster' aims to change the paradigm by teaching free market economics via the gameplay of a cheeky mobile game on Apple iOS and Google Android. It is comprised of 6 mini games styled in the arcade fashion like Raving Rabbids, and in the game play of each mini-game is a serious economic message hidden beneath the game play 

 Thus busy working adults can now play 'Fat Cat Bankster' on their mobile devices while on the go, and do not have to rely on costly courses conducted over long periods of time by overpaid lectutrers whose theories are 2 or 3 decades out of date
