Public budget data is hard to understand and to communicate. Nevertheless, to better address corruption and misuse of public money, it is necessary to gain a better understanding of the topic.
The Good, The Bad and The Accountant is an interactive, game-like experience, where users play the role of a fictional general manager in a large European city and have to take a series of decisions that show the complexity of corruption and cronyism in the public administration.
Throughout the game, hints are given to users so that they understand how corruption and mismanagement occur and how they can spot it in real life.
Journalism++ presents the making-of of this serious game, the impacts and the lessons learned on gamification.
