dc.description.abstract We describe Bar Chart Ball, a game where players indirectly control a ball by modifying a bar chart that the ball rests on. The bar chart displays real-world demographic data about the UK, and the player modifies the chart by selecting which aspect of the data to focus on. By making data selection a core game mechanic, in fact the only game mechanic, we advance a novel and simple way of building game content from data, and of making data visualisation playable. en_US
