Newsgames 2014

After Buzzfeed has revealed ambitions to create a studio for news games quite a bunch of people are showing new interest in interactive forms of journalism. And a lot of stuff is going on in various parts of the media ecosystem. We – the Good Evil Game Studio – are happy to be part of the movement. After having organised Europe´s First Newsgames Hackathon with a lot of fantastic people we had the chance to present, discuss and try out the topic at the Reporterforum at Der Spiegel in Hamburg, at the Games For Change Europe Conference in Paris and at this years Reeperbahnfestival and the Play14 conference. Check our Vine-Prototypes from the workshop here. And if you want to start doing Newsgames. Do it. And make sure to check out our Newsgames Idea Generator.
