“Prebunking” conspiratorial, electoral, and medical disinformation through online games
Our inoculation games were designed as part of a collaboration between DROG, Gusmanson Design and Cambridge University. We created these games to improve people’s ability to spot common manipulation techniques such as trolling and creating conspiracy theories out of thin air. So far, we’ve launched three different games, each of which covers a different domain of misinformation: Bad News (about online “fake news”), Harmony Square (about political disinformation and intergroup polarization), and Go Viral! (about COVID-19 misinformation). More games are currently in development. This page will be updated as soon as they are publicly available.
A short, free-to-play online game in which players learn how political misinformation is produced and spread.
From fake news to chaos! How bad are you? Get as many followers as you can.
