World Data Cup

La Stampa


What would happen if the 32 countries that play in the 2014 Football World Cup challenge each other using data?

Starting from this question and selecting data from institutions such as World Bank, UN, International Monetary Fund and CIA Factbook, we created a newsgame based on penalties. The user can choose the team to play with and the software randomly selects the opponent, then it’s time to shoot five penalties, choosing among 14 parameters related to topics such as economy, environment or human rights. Fingers crossed, shoot and… you will discover amazing stuffs!

The newsgame has both Italian and English versions.
