Creating Games for Journalism

Creating Games for Journalism | Web Tech | Scoop.it

Games mock realities that, at their best, can make players feel an emotion more powerfully than any other medium. You are the on-screen actor, and you control the game's plot through your actions. Having control means you're responsible, within obvious bounds, for what happens in the game, so achievements, failures, consequences and the emotions those come with, belong to you.

It's good to see at least a mention of Twine for creating CYOA games -although not mentioning Inform 7 or Quest 5 for creating parser-based IF is a huge oversight IMHO. Professor Denniz Jerz has been using Interactive Fiction/Inform 7 to teach Journalsim for many years

This seems like a great way to teach kids, but also to get them to teach their peers. We know that if you can successfully teach someone, then you truly understand the skill.

Once you learn how to use the server side language of node.js, you will need to know how to design a dynamic web site on node.js.  Remember that the flow of PHP is different from node.js.
