NewsGamify (Round 4)

Hungary Project type: prototype David Koranyi


NewsGamify transforms the way we consume news - passive news readers become active 'news players' with the aid of gamification. 

The solution

NewsGamify puts users in the shoes of a political decision-maker confronted by a domestic or foreign policy challenge. While making decisions, players will immerse themselves in a playful in-depth learning process, leading to a better understanding of sources of conflict, possible pitfalls and available policy options. As people increasingly consume news on mobile, favour shorter stories and mix their consumption with other activities, it’s getting harder to capture a reader’s attention. Gamification can offer a new narrative framework, improve reader engagement, and result in a better-informed electorate.
