Problem

- Liveability means something unique to everyone.

- It's your story, but you can't tell it at the moment

- Liveability rankings exist for Melbourne, but in such a diverse state, how do you know which area suits you best? Would a Weekend in Warrnambool suit you best, or or maybe a lifetime?

Beat the Press is a frenetic action game that challenges players to match news headlines, science data, descriptions of artwork, and other data descriptions to their corresponding images.

Players take control of colourful news broadcasters and their rocket-powered news desks, competing against each other to collect images from the level and throw them onto the correct headline or description in the news ticker. Various datasets are used, pairing descriptions and names to images.
