Facts Game Jam 2024 registration

The FACTS GAME JAM is focusing on games and playful media (VR/ AR/ XR) and on how new technologies such as  AI, VR, Chat GPT etc. influence the way information is now produced, distributed and presented. In the digital era, journalists face different challenges related to privacy, sourcing, conflicts of interest, objectivity, and the ambivalence of facts and fakes. New technological developments can both strengthen journalism and weaken it. They open possibilities for new forms of producing (e.g. community journalism) and storytelling beyond the fact or fake binary. In this ambivalence game mechanics can potentially support a better understanding of societal challenges and political conflicts.
