Summary: Reality is an iPad game that puts you in the shoes of a freelance journalist in a culturally and politically diverse city. Use time and money wisely to talk to sources for a complete story and then try to sell that story to one of the city’s newspapers. The rewards are also balanced; increased popularity and money can come at the cost of a more divisive and intolerant society.
