Data Dealer, the bitingly clever game about personal data & privacy. Run your own Tracebook & crush those whiny privacy critics!

Data Dealer is an award winning online game about collecting and selling personal data - full of irony and gleeful sarcasm. It´s about surveillance, privacy, the social impact of technology, and fun. What if you had control over millions of Internet users' personal data? Ever wanted to run your own Smoogle & Tracebook, track your users & ruthlessly collect loads of detailed personal profiles? Now you can!

Data Dealer lets you 'play god' with personal data. It's a browser game, 100% free to play and released under Creative Commons. Let's call it a bastard offspring of certain shiny 2010 Facebook Games and the 1990 TV simulation game Mad TV, reborn with the souls of South Park and Bruce Schneier. Or simply: PRISM. The Game.

  • The good news: Data Dealer is not just an idea. We've already got a nice playable demo online (check it out on datadealer.com!), received lots of awesome feedback from the online community & media, and: the full-featured multiplayer version is already 80% finished!
  • The bad news: We've been working really hard for the past two years to reach this point. But: Without a final budget injection we won't make it.
  • The really good news: If we succeed with our Kickstarter we can finish the full-featured version of Data Dealer within 2 or 3 months!

Final day! It's going to be a really close call!

Our campaign was off to a flying start, then took a little nose dive before it covered a vast distance last week! We really need to shift our efforts into overdrive to succeed.

Yesterday we made it into ...the NEW YORK TIMES, today we'll make the missing amount and reach our goal. Hell yeah. So, please:

Take a look at our videos, play the demo, check out all the other info we provide & help us to finally bring Data Dealer online! Whether you contribute $1, $10, $100 or even more, any amount helps.

We prepared lots of neat stuff for you: From funky stickers, whistleblower whistles and our famous LowTecDataErasers to exclusive t-shirts, our very special "Data Buddy" plushie and handmade avatars...check it out! You can find a complete list of rewards a little further down our Kickstarter page!

Data Dealer has been created by a small group of developers, game designers, open source advocates, researchers and digital rights activists hailing mainly from Vienna, Austria. We're assisted by wonderful US supporters like Nick Farr, Alli Treman and Heather Kelley (one of the "five most powerful women in gaming," we're told).

Btw. Data Dealer will be playable on datadealer.com, but of course also via Tracebook! Oh...the irony. Have a look at our lovely page address:

But also follow us on Twitter!

Awesome media coverage! In the last couple weeks the New York TimesNBC NewsThe New YorkerFast CompanyProPublicaDaily Dot, the Guardian, the Washington Post, Le Monde and many more wrote about us. And Mashable did a super-awesome article+video.

Data Dealer is a browser/social/serious/edu/impact game about running your own Smoogle & Tracebook, collecting and selling personal data, tracking people, surveillance, privacy - and fun. It's a nonprofit project published under Creative Commons that aims to raise awareness about personal data and digital privacy issues in a new and fun way.

Privacy? Screw that. Turn the tables!

"Become a data dealer and get all the dirty details on your friends, neighbors and the rest of the world. Learn how to trick your users and make cash with their personal info! Legal? Illegal? Whatever."

In Data Dealer you take on the role of an unscrupulous "data dealer," collect personal data all over the internet, and learn how to turn this information into cash. You run all kinds of companies and online ventures - from dating sites and mobile apps to search engines and your own social web. On the way to becoming the world's most powerful data tycoon, you obtain data from a variety of sources – whether legal or illegal - and ruthlessly sell it to insurance companies, human resources departments or governmental agencies. You also need to defend your growing data empire against competing players hacking your database, complaining citizens, critical media and pesky privacy activists.

PRISM as a Game!
PRISM as a Game!

Why are digital culture, personal data & privacy so important to us?

In today's digital age virtually everything we do is recorded, monitored or tracked in some way. Nearly every device we use is connected to the Internet. And it's not only about today's uses of personal data, but also about those we have yet to imagine. What kinds of personal data exists? Who collects it? And who controls it? If we continue down the current path, the control rests with a few companies - who are free to exploit all the value, and exert a huge degree of influence on the decisions we make in our everyday lives.

So, why did we choose to create a game out of this serious issue?

We've been thinking about the social impacts of technology for a long time. Today it's mainly corporations and governments who benefit from the great amounts of personal data out there. Let's talk about it! We asked ourselves: What is to be done? Renounce today's communication tools? No! We're not Ted Kaczynski. We love digital technologies! What about all that data protection and regulations stuff? No! We're no lawyers (though it might be necessary to think about that too). That's why we decided to go for knowledge, education and awareness! We believe that it's crucial for people to understand "personal data" and its value before they will be able to make a self-determined use of it. And as nobody is interested in those lame pedagogical "be a little careful what you're sharing online" approaches, we tried to find another way…and Data Dealer was born!

From research to practice: How to gamify personal data business?

Data Dealer is based on lots of research. We compiled a 15 page report about the economy of personal data in the digital age. Or have a look at the TEDxVienna talk by Data Dealer's Wolfie Christl. It's about self tracking tools, health insurance companies, data brokers like Acxiom or Lexis Nexis Risk Solutions - and about the creation of our game:

(Hint for the intro joke: Someone put buzzword bingo cards on all the seats in the audience. It contained the word "gamification". Hehe)

So, it's a serious game?

No. Neither "serious" nor "educational." Data Dealer is solely for your entertainment! Ever wanted to run your own dating platform, some crappy mobile apps or your own Smoogle & Tracebook? Collecting data for fun and profit? Now you can! :)

But, but, but...it's true: By playing you could also discover some answers. Who has your data? Does it matter that they have it? And what are the risks, both to you, and to society? What the hell is this data-driven future we're creating? Data Dealer is also an interactive exploration of the personal data ecosystem, based on in-depth research.

In 2012 we released the German demo. Many people liked it. After that we continued development. Recently we released the English demo, and the full-featured multiplayer version is about 80% finished! But there is still some production, as well as a ton of polishing and testing, left to do. We want to take our time and make the game as good as possible.

We ran the numbers and found that $50k is the amount we need to finish the full-featured multiplayer version and bring it online. Data Dealer is a nonprofit project, all team members are working for an average hourly rate of $15. Yes, that's low, but enough to make a living - and enough to enable us to finish our project.

So it's pretty easy. Contribute $15 and you'll make 1 hour of work happen. Contribute $1200 and make 2 weeks of work happen! :)

Data Dealer is a nonprofit project. It will be playable for free and there will be NO virtual goods and NO enhanced gameplay for cash. We're not Zynga, after all! Therefore we can't offer you a "product" reward of the game itself. The main reward of backing us is that you help make Data Dealer happen! Of course we know you love those warm fuzzies, but we still invented a whole bunch of nice things you can receive in addition. Have a look!

It's been a long journey.

We started work on Data Dealer in 2011, alongside our daytime jobs. However, after the successful release of the German demo in 2012, one thing was clear to us: We needed to work on Data Dealer full time to really finish it. Luckily we managed to get funding from Austrian government agencies and private foundations, and we continued development last autumn. Interested in details?  Here's a fancy chart.

Data Dealer was started by a team of four in 2011. Last October our amazing core crew expanded to thirteen  - not to mention all the great friends helping us in every possible way! We're a group of web developers, game designers, artists, open source advocates, researchers and digital rights activists.

Our CIO (Chief Illustration Officer) Pascale created some wonderful team headshots. The reason why we're looking a bit groggy is probably because we were partying all night long before she sat down at the drawing table. Kidding - it´s because of the Data Dealer style of course!

We´re mainly based in Vienna, Austria - but some of us also in Germany, Switzerland and the US. We love digital technologies, but consider the investigation of the social impacts of information technology as crucial for a future society in which people are able to make a positive and self-determined use of it.

Our demo shows the basic gameplay: collecting profiles from different sources, importing them into your database and re-selling them again. And then there's a few other things to play around with as well. But we've already got a lot more than you can see in the demo. The full version will be...much, much bigger:

  • In the demo you're starting with some pre-loaded game progress. In the full version you'll experience the glamorous life of a data dealer from scratch.
  • Login via datadealer.com or (for those who are into sharing) via Facebook, Twitter, Google+ etc
  • Continuously grow your data empire over days and weeks
  • Much more content & stories!
  • Better game mechanics & balancing
  • Missions, goals & achievements
  • Multiplayer: Share profiles with your data dealer buddies and team up to hack the databases of your not-so-buddies.
  • There's some nice sound in the video trailer, but not in the demo. In the full version you'll be able to hear all those sales ringing up.
  • Better image/risk system and more ways to put the blame on complaining citizens, critical media and pesky privacy activists 
  • Much more content & stories: You'll be able to run mobile apps, self tracking tools, search engines and your own Tracebook!

Sneak Leaks Part I: What´s new in your Database?

Full version new database features: Zooming, combining attributes, powerful super scores...take a look at some of the things we've been working on really hard in the last couple of months. Data Dealer's interface design & animation hero Ralf has created a super-duper late-night screencast showing the current alpha of the full version:

Sneak Leaks Part 2: What's new in your data empire?

Take a look at your new empire: besides agents, there are now three more types of items available to help you gradually build up your data empire. First you can expand your influence by establishing your business in the world's greatest metropolises, like NYC, Vienna (ehm) and more. From there you can unlock and build handy bogus companies (you don't want to be traced down too easily by some gung-ho journalist). Bogus companies also let you acquire and manage your ventures and online firms:

You now also have your sales taskforce, namely your data-pushers. Apparelled with cybertronically enhanced glasses, they can see right through the needs of your clients and make sure there's always someone to foist your data upon:

Look at Scotty: how happy he is to deliver your precious goods to the National Railway and cash in on the Health Funds! Here you can also have a look at parts of the new user interface: We did a complete code rewrite to allow players to manage up to 150 items in the empire screen and also made many other improvements (zoom!)

In the full version you will be able to run much more different types of nicely nepharious companies and online ventures, for example your own DNA laboratory:

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We´ve been doing open source web development for more than 10 years. So it was clear for us to base our game on open and not on proprietary technologies. As a result we're using HTML5 instead of Flash (which is what most browser games still use). And as there was no open source game engine that fit our design, we've built our own. Those two parts have been especially tricky, and still continue to be.

However! We've been fully committed to working on Data Dealer since 2011. Since autumn 2012 we've been working on the full-featured multiplayer version. It´s about 80% finished now. We’ve already overcome all sorts of obstacles …and we've nearly made it! The way we see it, the risk of not completing Data Dealer is about 0%.
