Bright Light Web

Siana Mihova

Web Game

Bright Light Web is a game that allows users to recognize their degree of literacy in noticing dark patterns — interfaces that are designed to persuade the user to perform or avoid a certain action. To familiarize the user with the phenomenon, the game consists of ten different levels, each based on real experiences. Upon each challenge completion, users are informed of the dangers or disappointing strategies they have just gone through. The sum of these experiences will enable users to identify and circumvent the many tricks of dishonest and persuasive design in the future.
