Data play an important role in today's internet and often people don't pay attention to that importance, we wanted to create a simple teaching game that would introduce the player to the different aspects of ethical data

What it does

The game teaches the player some basic but important aspects of personal data, what they're worth and how companies collect and use them for higher profit.

How we built it

We used Phaser.js along with the usual html/css/jQuery and express/node.

Challenges we ran into

  • New theme, i.e. limited knowledge and difficulty to propose an on-level idea.
  • Lack of free tilesets.
  • Teammate major blocker.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • The fact we're 3/4 through the project despite all the blockers teammates had.

What we learned

  • Learned a lot about data collecting, permissions, several websites footprint tracking and data trade.

What's next for Data: The Game

  • Implement the left scenes from our game script (game scenario).
  • Make better animations and fix few bugs.
