The levels and characters in the game are based on specific news stories about the financial crisis. The game has three acts: The Setup, Wrongful Foreclosure, and Securitization, which teach players about different aspects of the financial crisis. In The Setup, players defend their home from Alan Greenspan’s Zombie, which advocated for easy mortgages and artificially low interest rates, and the Creepy Balloon Mortgage Clown who will sell you a mortgage that may balloon out of control. In Wrongful Foreclosure, players must fend off robosigners who were hired to sign tens of thousands of foreclosure affidavits and Rocket Docket Judges who came out of retirement to preside over no-document foreclosure hearings. The final act, Securitization, is about how mortgages were packaged and sold to unsuspecting investors.
