The day after Hurricane Dante hits Port Douglas, players have their hands full running the city’s online news magazine, The Daily Byte. They must get important news out to a community in need by reviewing key articles, identifying critical information, and managing a staff who are themselves dealing with the effects of the storm.
Players are faced with an unexpected challenge when one of their staff members goes missing while out on an assignment. To track him down, they need to review the clues he left behind while continuing to run the magazine, publishing articles that matter to the community.
When The Daily Byte‘s lead reporter comes to the Editor-in-Chief with a tip that the Mayor is misusing relief funds, players find themselves in the midst of a potential political scandal as they sift through contradictory evidence to determine whether to publish her article.
The Daily Byte is facing a financial crunch in the aftermath of the storm. Players need to sort through the magazine’s finances, revenue opportunities, and the needs of their staff members to make the necessary changes that will ensure the stability of the magazine in the long run.
When a new position opens up at The Daily Byte, the enthusiastic but inexperienced intern decides he’s perfect for the job. Players must take a hard look at job descriptions, cover letters, and professional brochures to determine the best candidate for the position, balancing the needs and resources of the magazine with the competing interests of multiple staff members.
