Run Your Own Newspaper: The Westport Independent

I'd run a whole paper of Garfield strips

I've been ██████ ██ writing this post about The Westport Independent ███ ███████ ████ ███ ███, with everything █████ ██, thinking about it ███ ████ ████████. It looks quite splendid ███ █ █████ ███ ███ ████████ █████ ███ ███. See, The Westport Independent is about running an independent newspaper that's soon to ██ ████ ████ ██ a government bill. Picking and editing stories line-by-line you can print safe news or, as a last hurrah, take █ █████ █████████ ███ rebels undermining the government. You can imagine ███ ████ █████ ███████ ██ a shower of ████████. Come watch the trailer!

The news you report can █████ ███████ ██ the world, which of course changes the news you ███ report on. ████ staff are all people with their own █████ ███ concerns, though, so some mightn't ████ ███████ ██ risk their lives by covering ███████ stories.

"Whose truth will you print?" ask developers Double Zero One Zero.

They started making The Westport Independent in a game jam earlier this year, and you can still play that old version online. No release date yet ███ ███ ████ ████ ██ ██████ ██ Windows, ███, and Linux.

"█████ ██████ and instantly brought Republia Times to mind, which I always forget about until something like this reminds me," said Adam Smith, ██, of ███ █████. This ███████ week.
