Forget Frontier Ville; NewsGame may end up capturing the hearts of wannabe reporters around the world and stealing time away from other social games by tapping real journalists to create content for the game world. Players will enter a journalist’s shoes and “report” from various locations around the globe and face the same dangers that real journalists face. (We’re currently petitioning to get paid for the hours we log in the game, but so far it looks like a no-go.)
