GAME JAM

News Games & News Competence

A growing number of people receive their information about politics and world affairs completely from social media. Traditional news media are continuously losing their customer base, especially among younger generations. However, there is no editorial team behind Facebook and its competitors guaranteeing journalistic quality and verifiable statements. Developments like fake news and alternative facts are politically charged. At the same time, there is a profound lack of projects and materials that help promote news competence and enable people of all age groups to autonomously evaluate the quality of sources.

The Stiftung Digitale Spielekultur (Digital Game Culture Foundation) invited all interested parties to participate in a 48-hour Game Jam to find creative and engaging solutions for this challenge. Our goal was to develop news games and games with a strong focus on news competence especially for children and young adults.

We are very excited that Prof. Monika Grütters, Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, was the patroness of this Game Jam.

This event was sponsored by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media. The Game Jam was organized in cooperation with Games Academy and Maschinen-Mensch.
