I have entered into the rabbit hole once again with the alternate reality game (ARG) The Black Watchmen.
I along with many others first encountered The Black Watchmen as part of The Secret World MMO launch ARG event, I wear my Black Watchmen hoodie in game at every opportunity.
This ARG was designed by Alice and Smith it was spun off to be independent from TSW and kickstarted into it’s own entity, giving it a more permanent feel and a very expanded world, now with three DLC released and a strong online community the game continues to grow in strength.
Unlike titles like Orwell the game doesn’t confine itself to the software that is being used, it expects you to jump out and navigate to and interact with websites, trawl over the clues and data.
I will give you a warning that the game features images, videos and topics that may be mature in nature, such as violence, gore, blood, and other grotesque themes.
The game has 50% off in the Steam sale that runs out tomorrow, so if you fancy giving it a go then act fast.
