Are Newsgames Better Journalism?: Empathy, information and representation in games on refugees and migrants: Journalism Studies: Vol 0, No 0
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.

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.

6 lessons I learned from gamifying a documentary about the Syrian cyberwar – Medium
6. If you experiment with a new journalism format you will also have to create new rules
It might sound simple with hindsight, but this was the real challenge of putting journalism into a game format: in order to make it work we had to establish new, credible conventions to make the content trustworthy.
There was a moment where the game elements took over and truth started sounding stranger than fiction. To resolve this, I needed to learn and apply game thinking.
