The Panama papers ICIJ website has created a game giving players tips to create offshore accounts and evade taxes. Titled ‘StairWay to Tax Heaven,’ it essentially shows three characters which include a soccer player, a politician, and a business executive.
The game gets inspiration from the recent controversy dubbed as ‘Panama Papers’, considered to be one of the massive leaks ever. Around 11.5 million confidential documents and 2.6 terabytes of information have been leaked by one of the world’s most secretive law firms -- Mossack Fonseca -- headquartered in Panama.
“Welcome to the secret world of offshore. Your goal is to navigate this parallel universe and hide your cash away. Don’t worry! Lawyers, wealth managers, and bankers are there to help you.
Pick a character and don’t get caught,” reads the page.
Each character in the game puts you in a hypothetical situation where you’re asked to pick up an option. Depending on what you click, you’ll be given a final option which will determine whether you made the right move or is it game over for you.
