Backed by science
Research conducted in 2018 on the Bad News game by Dr. Jon Roozenbeek and Dr. Sander van der Linden with a study of 15000 people, showed it to increase “psychological resistance” to fake news. The study showed the perceived reliability of fake news before playing the game had reduced by an average of 21% after completing it. In addition, the researchers also found that those who registered as most susceptible to fake news headlines at the outset benefited most from the “inoculation”. Instead of telling people what to believe, our games were created to equip players with the skills necessary to identify, argue against, and prevent harmful misinformation from going viral.
