News Games,

Toys and Interactives

What Journalism Games Is All About aims to showcase interactives, toys and games from journalists or about the news. The site is intended as a resource for people who are planning to design or develop a variety of playful infographics, editorial games and more. This is a work-in-progress resource managed by students and faculty at the University of Miami School of Communications department of Interactive Media. Our aim is to support both journalists and independent game makers looking to understand the potential in using playful media to enhance news experiences and understanding.
