Dueling Traders

When Bloomberg Tradebook needed a way to communicate their product and it’s benefits they took an unusual path.  They made a game that teaches the art of trading, and they hired Tiny Mantis to create that game.

The game features two modes, network play and single player campaign(tutorial) mode.  In the single player campaign players learn about the stock market and the art of trading by simulating the first week at a trading firm.  With the help of Algo Bull and Rhythm Bear, they learn the ins and outs of trading while trying to clean up after their boss Mr. Pickles’ crazy mistakes.

The network play features up to 20 players at the same time, all competing against each other for their place on the leaderboard.

The game is available on the App Store but has also been used for various conferences and as an internal teaching tool.
