Hacks/Hackers August Meetup: Gamification in News

Description

Hacks/Hackers Hong Kong and Press Start Hong Kong will be co-hosting the HHHK August meetup, where we'll be talking about games in news and the growing trend of learning through play.


Gamification is the latest buzzword in digital, and the news industry is certainly jumping on the bandwagon. Cedric Sam will be sharing how technology, storytelling and art work together to create playful interactions that make news and information accessible to readers, and examples from a few leading players in digital journalism.

On the flip side, abstract concepts are finding their way into the world of games as well. The recent renaissance of board games has seen a raft of unique strategy games, designed around specific themes and interesting game mechanics, hit the market, and Press Start's Wesley Mui will be highlighting a few games that are more than just about winning.
