Games

Play the role of a journalist covering a breaking news story in the BBC iReporter game.

In "Factitious," players read abbreviated news stories and have to swipe right if they think they’re real or swipe left if they think they’re fake.

Take our Fake or Foto challenge and see if you can tell the difference between our real photos and those which are computer generated.

Can you spot the fake?

This game aims to teach media literacy and study how people interact with misinformation.

This media literacy game teaches players how to detect and disregard disinformation and misinformation in today’s chaotic environment.

Some things are so amazing, we're not sure if they're Real or Photoshop. Can you tell? Test your powers of observation.

Give yourself a "Reality Check" today!
