Ethics in Gaming Journalism

This post originally appeared at my secret level just drafts.

I transferred it to this place because my secret level now focuses more strictly on game-based learning, education, and LLM/GPT/AI.

The game “Actually, It’s About Ethics in Journalism!” pitches the player against hordes of badly coded Turing bots set up to propagate a fictitious media conspiracy.

The challenge is how long the player can either argue against, or ignore, an unrelenting onslaught of non-sequiturs and escalating threats and invective before her brain melts or she is driven from home.

This game has been released on , and you can play it for free!

It’s still in beta so here’s your invite: sign up with the key phrase #GamerGate and you’re good to go. Please note: especially if you are a woman, you might not be able to sign out again. Ever.



If you have something valuable to add or some interesting point to discuss, I’ll be looking forward to meeting you at Mastodon!
