Are Newsgames Better Journalism?: Empathy, information and representation in games on refugees and migrants: Journalism Studies: Vol 19, No 16
This study interrogates if newsgames are meaningful supplements to already existing forms of journalism. Using the case of refugee and migrant issues, this study examines how the newsgames The Refugee Challenge, Against all Odds and The Migrant Trail convey information about migration in interactive game-play, and how migrants and their situation are represented in these games. The games are discussed in relation to empathy, objectivity, complexity and the representation of distant suffering. The overarching question is how newsgames compare to traditional journalism when it comes to helping audiences understand political events of global concern and power asymmetries between “Others” and “us.” We find that these newsgames especially enhanced journalism when they cleverly employed game logics to generate experiential engagement with the existential crisis of involuntary dislocation. Nevertheless, the games did not use their game capabilities to the fullest, which would have entailed opening up a discourse that allows for contradictory life worlds and different perspectives of and by Others in context.

Reflections on The Uber Game, one year on
But I think there is still a long way to go before newsgames become an established news format, or a class of content like video or audio. There is a big difference between making one good newsgame because everything happened to have come together in just the right way, versus being able to do so consistently at a high level.
Compared to other formats, newsgames remain complex and expensive to produce. This makes it hard to find sustainable business models to support and scale it beyond one-off or passion projects.

How we created “The Good, The Bad and The Accountant” – Medium
So we added other characters to build an actual storyline. We added a mayor to give orders, a lawyer to give advice and all the characters we needed to create situations of corruption (the contractor, the football club boss, the university director etc.) We just had one problem: users did not read anything in the “help” section. Actually, they didn’t even see there was a help section.

Investigating A Cyberwar | Global Investigative Journalism Network
Generally I tend to be extremely honest when I contact people. I say who I am and that I appreciate the reasons why they would not talk to me, and then ask if there is anything that could change their mind. I find that instead of telling people what I want them to do, asking them what they would like to do works wonders, even with people who operate outside the law. As a TV reporter I need quite a degree of collaboration to get my interviewees in front of the camera, and email exchanges or phone calls don’t give me a film.
