Missed Information is the product of a thesis project wherein the goal is to develop a video game that educates its players on what fake news is, and teaches them the methods to identify articles on social media that are verifiably false. The game is a puzzle simulation where the player takes on the role of a fact-checker hired by a social media company. They will learn the methods for spotting fake news and the aspects of news articles that can be scrutinized to determine their validity. As the game goes on, they are introduced to more methods of spotting fake news. The aim is for the player to come out of the experience knowing what fake news is and how to identify them, and to be able to apply this knowledge to their everyday life.
