Play the game

"On the Ground Reporter",
Butch & Sundance Media, Netherlands
"On the Ground Reporter" (Butch & Sundance Media, Netherlands) is about journalism in areas of conflict and aims at high school students in the first place. The makers' missiion is interactive storytelling, and they consider their production a "documentary game". Videos, audios, 360-degree photos, many choices and a radio show to be made - "On the Ground Reporter" is a state-of-the-art point-and-click game aiming at involving the user in what media making is about.

However: An online game when it comes to Uganda, Afghanistan, Darfur, to famine and to war? Amazing, and yet irritating.
