PolitiTruth is a non-profit game of distinguishing political fact from fiction.
Swipe to the left to guess the news story is false, and swipe right to guess it is true. The game uses the Politifact API to remain non-partisan and help our audience engage with a highly reputable source. Your guesses are anonymously saved online to show how your political awareness compares to other players, and to help identify the stories people get wrong most often.
Data on public misconceptions in politics is highly reliant on surveys and our hope is with a large audience of people playing, we can make these statistics more robust and reduce response bias.
PolitiTruth was created by Christopher Cinq-Mars Jarvis and is part of Cinq-Mars Media, a 501(c)3 non-profit devoted to education.
We live in a moment where our world is saturated with more misinformation than ever, and the very nature of truth is undermined and ignored by political hyperbole and conspiratorial rhetoric. My ambition through this game is to to inform and encourage people to better discern their sources of information, build their political consciousness and exploit their competitive nature to do so.
