"Go Viral" is an online game where you pretend to spread misinformation. You can get your misinformation to "go viral" by knowing how to manipulate emotions and cite phony "experts".
To do well at this game, do not select the choices that the real you would select. While you're playing, you must get into the mind of a sociopath who doesn't care about hurting other people in order to get attention and enjoy the power of influencing weak-minded people.
After playing, please post comments about the game here. Note: I am not the creator of the game and I have no affiliation with the web site.
24,440 was my final score. Top 14%.
Chaos gonna chaos.
The "Go Viral" game site is still up and running for anyone who wants to play. To score high, choose evil and avoid boring.
24,099. Interesting game. I guess we are an information bubble here.
The questions and survey make me wonder if someone isn’t getting some good anthropological/sociological data from this game. Nice find.
I played this game once again, for the first time in almost a month. My score: 23,533. It's a matter of choosing the options that are the most evil, the most misleading, and the most exciting.
21,546. Takes a bullshitter to recognize bullshit.
I figure I could go back and play it again, and get a completely different score.
Is that the point of it?
I got 22,688. Honestly didn’t understand some of the choices for responses. Did, “mkay” get me farther than a “big oof”? I feel like I could have been more manipulative if I‘d understood the meanings of some of those. Also, I really wanted to go buck wild on aliens right outta the gate. Was so hard not to.
I got 23.430but then I thought that could be manipulation. Just want me to think I’m all that! Thanks Per that was fun
So I got 19,264 likes in the game, made the news, launched international protests and riots. Hey Don Pardo, what do I win?
