H8RBL - Fighting Hatespeech
Funded by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, the iRights.Lab is developing a computer game against hate on the net
We go deeper into game development and answer questions like: What are the reasons for Hatespeech? What are the mechanisms involved in its spread? How does hate speech spread online affect the real world? And above all: What can be done about it?
In a computer game developed as a prototype, the relevance of the problem is to be experienced in a new way. The game is a serious game that does not raise its index finger, but conveys the topic in a playful, attractive and at the same time informative way.
Our primary concern in this project is to create an appealing gaming experience that goes beyond the actual game itself. The world of experience of the game should build a bridge to the use against hate, defamation and personal injuries in social interaction. It is also intended to stimulate and promote public discourse to combat an aggressive debate culture.
We want to network with stakeholders in the field of digital serious games. Anyone who would like to contact us is cordially invited to do so, for example via e‑mail to: email@example.com.
