The Guardian is a 190-year-old British newspaper but in 2016 it setup an in-house studio dedicated to making 360 video and interactive VR. With 12 pieces now under their belt, the team quickly learned a developer's mindset while working out how to stay true to their journalistic roots.


Members of the gaming community who are interested in where VR can go in journalism will see how the
journalistic production pipeline is developing around building VR, understand some of the ethical considerations when it
comes to telling a story as a game, and can connect with some other like-minded gamers and journalists who are
interested in how to combine the two fields to build immersive, hard-hitting and engaging VR journalism pieces.
