The Co-Creation Hub, a startup incubator in Lagos, has just released a new game on the Android platform; Street Tinz.
Street Tinz is a role-playing game that stimulates starting up a small scale business. The player is given a #50,000 startup capital and by taking smart business decisions, he is expected to make a good profit. There are pitfalls however, the lure of fast money, occasional requests from your in-app mother, friends and occasional break-ins.
You’re sure to never miss a step if you take advice from “Mr Sogbondowo”. Staying alive requires that you keep up a decent energy level (Ginger meter).
The games draws context extensively from the Nigerian social scene. Recent events such as the Ebola outbreak are also featured.
Street Tinz is available on the Google’s apps Store.
