Samenvatting

The News Frontier is a start up that specializes in making newsgames. A newsgame is like a regular game, only the narrative is not fictional like most games. It is based on a real life event. I think it is necessary to realize that only bigger events will make it into a game, because of the time it takes to make a game. Also, the subject of the newsgame might be more about a background piece of the event, than the real "news" you find on CNN.
Together with co-founders Alka Anna Goos and Kaja Bouman, I have tried to find out the best way to make a newsgame. What would grasp the audience? Last year, we attended the pilot Game Design in Eindhoven. This was a minor for students who want to design games. We met students who want to become a game designer or developer. Also, they play a lot of games themselves. Soon we found out that most of them did not want to make a non-fictional game with just some choices like "would you go do this or that". They wanted dragons and magic spells.
The topics mentioned above are things I take in consideration while I am writing this research about newsgames. This will hopefully bring me closer to finding the way in newsgaming-world.
