Troll Factory

Troll Factory was developed by a team of experts at Yle, the Finnish Broadcasting Company. The team creates new storytelling methods that combine journalistic practices with digital experiences.

Troll Factory shows you first-hand how information operations work on social media. The goal of the game is to illustrate how fake news, emotive content and bot armies are utilized to affect moods, opinions and decision-making.


PolitiTruth is a non-profit game of distinguishing political fact from fiction.

Swipe left to guess a news story is false and swipe right to guess it is true. The game is made in partnership with the Pulitzer Prize winning organization PolitiFact in the hopes of encouraging players to better discern sources of information while gathering beneficial statistics on public misconceptions. By tapping into our competitive nature, we hope to expand political consciousness.


This game aims to teach media literacy and study how people interact with misinformation. You will see a simulated news feed with articles like the one below. Some coming from legitimate news sources. And some from sites that typically publish false or misleading reports, clickbait headlines, conspiracy theories, junk science, and other types of misinformation. Your goal is to support a healthy social media experience by promoting information from reliable sources and not from low credibility sources.

So we built Fake News!, a simple game to test our collective ability to distinguish between what's true, and what's just been tweeted.
