That reminds me - there was an article in the New Scientist a few weeks
ago about "newsgames". These are essentially journalism in an
alternative media (rather like photo journalism is): telling a news
story through a game rather than a traditional linear narrative.

e.g. You are a detainee in Guantanamo Bay and are innocent of the crimes
of which you have been accused. Your mission is to get out by any means
possible. The point the journalist wants to make is conveyed as the
player discovers which, if any, techniques (reasoning, bribery,
tunnelling, disguises) are successful, and which result in failure.
