When looking into CapitalOne to brainstorm for the financial challenge, I realised I don't actually know anything about finance. I mean, does anyone? It's one of those mysterious fields with huge importance but little transparency. So I decided to combine a classic clicker game-style (except less delicious) with a comedic goal, while actually providing a learning opportunity.
What it does
It's never been so easy to destroy your credit score! Simply click and watch as the state of your finances descends into madness. Buy upgrades and you can ruin your future even faster.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I was supposed to attend this event as a team but unfortunately circumstances beyond our control meant that two hours after the hackathon began, I was left to fight this one solo! I'm proud I managed to produce a working game and challenge myself to learn some new things, even if they aren't too complicated for other more experienced hackers.
What I learned
What's next for CreditCrunch
I'd like to add plenty more upgrades for the committed gamers, including hiding some easter eggs (no spoilers...)
