The main goal of “Redakcija 2030” is to develop players’ critical thinking and ability to behave effectively and safely in the Internet space through well-played methods that are attractive to various age groups.
Different and randomly generated content (different situations, variety of news headlines and diversity of the comments) keeps the focus, prevents the player from losing engagement in the game and at the same time retains the entertainment aspect.
Although the names and stories of characters that appear in the game are fictional and have no counterparts in real life, the game was developed with the support of journalists and editors of the biggest Lithuanian news portals. With the support of professionals, it was possible to depict the accurate daily work routine of the editors.
The mobile app format was chosen because it was considered innovative and widely accessible to broader audiences, allowing the game to reach its intended target audience easily. It also provides a realistic gameplay experience since most journalists do similar types of work on their mobile devices.
