Default BBC game challenges young people to spot "fake news"

It is a "choose your own adventure" game, created by Aardman Animations, which challenges you to make your own decisions on which sources, political claims, social media comments and pictures should be trusted as you contribute to the day's news output.
It's actually quite nerve-wracking! I'm afraid my accuracy was pretty poor by the end of it... only about 50%. But I did max out impact and (almost) speed.

This is the direct link to the game, although you can also get to it from the article:
