Dream Racer

The roar of the engine, the thrill of the chase, you can smell first place but it is just out of reach! If only you weren’t driving such a junker…

You’ll need to manage your finances as you hit the racing circuit, gain sponsorships, sell old racers, and pick out parts and upgrades to build your very own “dream racer”. So start your engines and burn some rubber. Dream Racer is go-kart racing at its finest!

The game is 100% free-to-play (with no in-app purchases).

The game is developed by the Games for Entertainment and Learning (GEL) Lab at Michigan State University and supported by the Michigan State University Federal Credit Union.  The game is targeted at high school students to help build their financial literacy skills.  In particular, the game focuses on savings, credit, bills, and budgeting.
