In the social impact game Bad News you take on the role of a propagandist. Enter the shadowy world of online deceit and rise to power. Build your army of online trolls and spread conspiracies to influence the public debate and contemplate the dangerous implications disinformation can have on your daily life and society as a whole.

    I enjoyed the game! Makes it so easy for user to go on the dark side and be drawn to creating more and more disinformation. You should check Adventures of Literatus, excellent media literacy game developed by Armanian NGO
