Can games be journalism? Nick Fortugno looks at The Waiting Game, an interactive project co-created with ProPublica and WNYC, to discuss how interactivity can tell stories and create a powerful emotional experience. Fortugno walks through the development of the project, explaining how the mechanics of the interaction are leveraged to create an powerful moment of empathy, and how journalistic ethics impact the development process.
