FinTech for the Precariat
A wandering world application set in a fantastic cityscape populated by Greed, Lust, Gluttony, Envy, gig workers and 12 voices from New York City's financial spectrum. The user wanders about the environment to encounter the creatures that live in it and the financial perspectives and realities of individuals - from financial brokers to recent college grads to computer programmers and cultural workers.
