Chapter 4. Past Reality: An Annotated ARG, Part II

Chapter 4. Past Reality: An Annotated ARG, Part II

This chapter continues the discussion of how the original ARG, the Beast for the A.I. film, was played out and solved by the Cloudmakers. While there is no inherent requirement that you read the chapters of this book in specific order, it’s probably in your best interest, at least with these two chapters, to read Chapter 3 first, followed by this one.

What will you discover as you read about how the puzzle that was the game was eventually solved? To begin, you will see that the game entered the real world when the puppetmasters staged actual events in the real, physical world. While this is becoming more of a common occurrence in ARGs that are being played out today (most notably, of course, the spectacular production of “The Art of the Heist,” which you read about in Chapter 3), this concept was still very new in the spring of 2001 when this game was unfolding.
