As the nation's financial situation festers, Lowe, New York and Firstborn have picked a rather fitting time to launch the "Bad Credit Hotel" site for the U.S. Treasury.

The site is set up as an interactive game, which is intended to teach visitors about credit reports and debt management. Using black and white video, scratchy effects and a creepy hotel as their setting, Lowe and Firstborn are challenging visitors to collect enough credit knowledge throughout the venue in order to reach room 850 (the number being the perfect credit score).

Using your mouse, you can roll over objects for directional clues, grab various items and meet characters in the rooms. The goal is to collect and add enough items to your inventory to unlock room 850, which features expanded content and is the only room in the hotel that's set in color.
