Education is one area where games can have an impact and the Zindagi platform by Mindblown Labs offers just this. While currently in beta, the Zindagi platform provides students and other consumers with a game that teaches life skills, such as managing money and building your own business.

Through social networks and a competitive gaming environment, the Zindagi platform lets players set goals and achieve them by learning how to handle their own finances (for example, buying things via credit or borrowing money from family), practice saving money and learn how to make the right choices when it comes to their desired careers.

The video here walks you through an example of a player named George who wants to be a rockstar. To achieve this dream, George must earn money by playing small gigs. When he earns enough money, he has the option to buy things -- like a new jacket -- or invest in items, like a new amp, that will help him in his career.
