While simulation games aren’t a particularly uncommon sight on the Apple and Android marketplaces, most of them cover very similar types of situations: situations that most people are able to relate to such as bike racing, running a restaurant, and even managing a sports team. Well now 12-year industry veteran Sergio Garces has released You’re a Bank, the fun banking simulation game that you can learn to play in under two minutes.
You’re a Bank features an exceedingly simple goal: you have 36 months to amass as large a fortune as possible. Money can be earned in numerous ways, such as loaning money to clients with backbreaking interest fees, buying and selling in the stock market, accepting deposits to boost your cash reserves, and even borrow money of your own to leverage your investments.
Inspired by the financial crash of 2008, You’re a Bank explores just how exactly a bank operates, as well as the trade offs involved in loaning and borrowing money. The game itself is designed to allow players to experiment with different methods of obtaining funds, encouraging replayability as you strive to beat your friend’s high scores.
