The Westport Independent.png

The Westport Independent uses the Ludum Dare 29 theme of "Beneath the surface" figuratively. Developers Pontus Lunden and Kristian Brodal have crafted a newspaper censoring game, where you decide what the public hears and how much you appease the loyalists.

There are only a few weeks left until the dismantling of all non-government owned paper companies. Depending on how you edit, and then print or deny the stories submitted, you will nurture a public which sympathizes with the rebels in the stories (white bar) or even have the loyalists grow suspicious of you (black bar). Faiure to censor "properly" will lead to an unhappy loyalist government.

Pick up your pen and decide if you will print the truth, the whole truth, or nothing but government propoganda, in The Westport Independent.
