Editor Newbie

Editor Newbie is a project that has been developed as a part of TechCamp 2022 hackathon, which was funded by The US Embassy Consulate and organised by Bahçeşehir University Game Lab. The participants had 3 categories to choose from; Human Rights, Ecology and Misinformation. My team and I decided to focus on misinformation and thus developed Editor Newbie. Among the many teams that have participated, 6 were chosen to be qualified to get a grant from the U.S. Embassy. Editor Newbie was one of the winning projects, it was requested to develop the game further in the upcoming 6 months. We have managed to work on a prototype with 5 levels while working part time on the game, with the help of our mentors. 

In Editor Newbie, the player is a high school student in responsibility of the school newspaper. As the player you need to examine various medias you can collect information from and analyse them. The character also makes comments about the information collected. Each level, the player can choose 2 information they have collected and come to a conclusion. The aim is to publish correct and reliable information.

I had the opportunity of attenting Indieway 2022 as a speaker in the TechCamp panel. I presented the game and answered the questions afterwards. It was a great experience.

In October 2022, all the winners of Techcamp 2022 were invited to the U.S. Consulate General Istanbul to present their projects to the Consulate and the press. I had the pleasure of attenting the event and presenting the game one more time.
