Anyone ever play "Spent?"

I'm not an online gamer at all but i'm interested in this game (& interested in having my teenage kids play it too.). The basic premise is you have $1000 to your name & are unemployed. You have to figure out how to make it last for a month & make a lot of (crappy) choices like rent place A for $650/mo thats next door to kids school & close to work or rent place B where rent is $500/mo but will require hour long bus ride. Like real life,other things pop up too i.e. car breaks down, kid gets sick, hours at work get cut. (Hmm maybe i have played this game before --- it was called my twenties!)

Anyone ever play it? I'd love some feedback.

I read about it in a yahoo finance article. Unfortunately, the game can't be played on a mobile device so I doubt I'll actually play it.
