Gaming the News

TechRaking Two is a daylong event on Sept. 19, 2012, dedicated to the intersection of news and games. Social and gaming continue to play a major role in how the public gathers information and interacts with content online.

Gaming industry executives, designers and artists will convene with investigative journalists to explore how gaming platforms can be used to reach and engage citizens in investigative journalism. In addition to participating in discussions with industry leaders, conference participants will be divided into teams and challenged to develop pitches for news games that connect players in radically new ways. The winning team will receive $10,000 worth of development time from Coco Studios to jump-start its idea with the Center for Investigative Reporting.

This conference is co-presented with the Online News Association and Public Radio International, hosted by IGN at its headquarters in San Francisco. For registration information, please contact Kristin Crawford at

Location: IGN Headquarters
