Skyless Games is dropping its financial corruption game soon

The startup, which creates video games for social impact, made "Follow the Money" for use by law enforcement but may release a version for the average gamer.

Around the Corner” is a PhillyCAM show that offers local social impact leaders the opportunity to share what impact their work is having on the Philadelphia area. 


Infuriated by financial corruption? Want to learn to do something about it? Skyless Games sees you.

Founded by Drexel grads, Skyless is a game studio that partners with nonprofits and other socially minded organizations to create video games for social impact — such as “City Hall,” which has players leading city government, and “LifeLeap,” a health-themed infinite runner game created with Drexel-based nonprofit Aahana.

In the coming months, Skyless will release “Follow the Money,” its two-years-in-the-works game that will train law enforcement professionals to investigate financial crimes.

Skyless cofounder Aradhya Malhotra joined Generocity Editor Julie Zeglen on “Around the Corner” to talk about the game (and when she can play it herself).
