Picture this: you're in Uganda, trying to find out what the impact of climate change is. Where do you start? What information do you need? Who's a trusted source? How to check information? This documentary doesn't give the answer. It only sends you into the field, to explore these questions for yourself.  

Concept

On The Ground Reporter® is an awarded series of documentary games. You play a reporter who is sent to different parts of the world. Your assignment? Only return with a good story. The games are put together with interactive video footage and 360 degree photography. It's a way to tell a complex story. The aim of the game is to collect as many pieces of information as possible. In the end you produce your own version of the story you've been covering.

Editions until now: Afghanistan, Uganda, Darfur, The Netherlands and Indonesia
