New e-mail:

Dear Ones,

Our story begins again in a new destination. Michelle and I are on a train heading there now. Our job is to take down a multinational corporation, whose identity must remain secret at the moment for your protection and ours.

This coming week I will summarize the story up until now and also give you some more background information about my traveling companion Michelle. Then the real work shall begin.

In the meantime, please tell me your favorite place to visit, either to travel to or in your own city. Then I can look ahead to something pleasant after all this is over.

All my best always,

Very welcome!
In general, for every forum, external hosting for images/files (like imgur or Google docs) is always preferred. Especially when this forum becomes more active and more people will upload files, it might get messy. But feel free to upload!

(I will no longer clutter this post with my tech talk. D )

Might have to manually delete older attachements in the future, but that’s for then to worry about.  ;D

Any idea what file size we’re talking about?
The forum has a default for 192kb max, which probably has fo do wirh stability and security.
Are we talking a couple MB max or more?

Will look into it.

Have to look into the file size thing.
Maybe meanwhile upload those externally and link to them?

Let me know how I can help.

In the Media... / What's Transmedia Storytelling? (Wikipedia)
« on: August 13, 2017, 03:53:29 PM »
From Wikipedia:
"Transmedia storytelling (also known as transmedia narrative or multiplatform storytelling) is the technique of telling a single story or story experience across multiple platforms and formats using current digital technologies, not to be confused with traditional cross-platform media franchises, sequels, or adaptations.

Henry Jenkins, author of the seminal book Convergence Culture, warns that this is an emerging subject and different authors have different understandings of it. He warns that the term "transmedia" per se means "across media" and may be applied to superficially similar, but different phenomena. In particular, the concept of "transmedia storytelling" should not to be confused with traditional cross-platform, "transmedia" media franchises,[1] or "media mixes".

From a production standpoint, transmedia storytelling involves creating content[2] that engages an audience using various techniques to permeate their daily lives.[3] In order to achieve this engagement, a transmedia production will develop stories across multiple forms of media in order to deliver unique pieces of content in each channel. Importantly, these pieces of content are not only linked together (overtly or subtly), but are in narrative synchronization with each other. In his latest book,[4] Nuno Bernardo shows TV and film producers how to use transmedia to build an entertainment brand that can conquer global audiences, readers and users in a myriad of platforms."

In the Media... / What's an ARG? (Wikipedia)
« on: August 13, 2017, 03:51:41 PM »
From Wikipedia:
"An alternate reality game (ARG) is an interactive networked narrative that uses the real world as a platform and employs transmedia storytelling to deliver a story that may be altered by players' ideas or actions.

The form is defined by intense player involvement with a story that takes place in real time and evolves according to players' responses. Subsequently, it is shaped by characters that are actively controlled by the game's designers, as opposed to being controlled by artificial intelligence as in a computer or console video game. Players interact directly with characters in the game, solve plot-based challenges and puzzles, and collaborate as a community to analyze the story and coordinate real-life and online activities. ARGs generally use multimedia, such as telephones, email and mail but rely on the Internet as the central binding medium.

ARGs are growing in popularity, with new games appearing regularly and an increasing amount of experimentation with new models and subgenres. They tend to be free to play, with costs absorbed either through supporting products (e.g. collectible puzzle cards fund Perplex City) or through promotional relationships with existing products (for example, I Love Bees was a promotion for Halo 2, and the Lost Experience and Find 815 promoted the television show Lost). However, pay-to-play models exist as well."

Finished Games / Projects / How it works
« on: August 12, 2017, 10:07:43 PM »
For those new to communities like these:

First up, welcome!

The Trailheads/Rabbit Holes board is where you can post links to any potential trailheads or rabbit holes. (No spam.)

When a thread is active and it seems to be an actual ARG or Transmedia project the moderators will move it to the "Active Games" board.

When the Game/Project is finished, the moderators will move it to the "Finished Games / Projects" board.

This is also the reason you can only reply to existing posts in the "Active Games" and "Finished Games / Projects" boards at this moment.
(This can be changed if needed.)
