“Endgame: Syria” New Way Of Informing!
The new project GameTheNews, created by Auroch Digital is based on the idea to use games as a medium to inform about current events like the war in Syria. Featuring rapid-game development methods the strategy gam “Endgame: Syria” responds to current real-world events and gives the player the possibility to impact on the conflict by choosing the options of the rebels. The blend of real-life events with the players in-game choices provides a new kind of infotaining gameplay and concludes in an individual outcome of the conflict due to your decisions.
“Endgame: Syria” focuses more on informing about the problem than giving an intense gamefeeling, which makes it more a simulation or an interactive experience. This new way of using the game medium for explaining current world problems provides a new look on the possibilities of games and is promising to become a new accepted genre.
