Lightbulb (ARG) Alternate Reality Game
I wanted to create this thread to see who in the GuildCafe community had taken part and has interest in Alternate Reality Games.

For information about what an ARG is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternate_reality_game

I've taken part of a couple ARG's in the past, most recently the ARG that Trent Reznor created for the Nine Inch Nails album "Year Zero". The ARG was so compelling and interesting it made me buy the album (which I ended up liking). The detail he went into with the ARG was astounding with several phone numbers, over 20 websites, thermal ink on the CD that changes with heat, etc. It was just awesome

Anyways, please tell us about your ARG experiences and if you're interesting in them

I've only particapated in the Cloverfield ARG. They put so much detail into it and designed such a deep backstory that can only be seen there, not in the movie. I'm buying me a Slusho! T-shirt

I'd like to play some more ARG's though.

I, too, participated in the Year Zero ARG. It was the first one I had ever participated in. I gotta say, 42 Production knows their shit when it comes to making ARGs. I already knew I'd like the music on Year Zero before I bought the album, because I'd listened to the tracks they leaked as part of the ARG. But, I also think I liked the music that much more once it had been released, just because I knew the story and the meaning behind each and every song, because I'd gotten to know the world each song was talking about.

And it makes me scared for the future, haha.

Actually GuildCafe has an ARG of its own in our super secret underground lab where we create transforming robots from GamerDNA.

Hmmm transforming robots...yummy.

But what do they transform into if using gamerDNA? Couches? Cake?

On a ARG game note I was one of the five people who played and really enjoyed Majestic and was sad to see it die.

I am a part of a group of designers and writers working on ARGs. I would love to discuss anything ARG related with those interested...

I've played a few ARGs before, but after awhile they get kinda corny with the way they go with their storyline.
