News Updates

You’ve seen many examples of how, during the course of the original game play, various “news updates” were provided, usually in the form of specific Web sites being updated on a weekly basis, but also changes and developments in characters’ actions that caused them to either make new “posts” to their Web sites (for example, Martin and his diary entries) or the delivery of new e-mails, and so on to players of the game.

At this point in the game (which, incidentally, was nearing the end of the game in the summer of 2001), there were several news updates. While perhaps none of them presented any critical information to players, they are interesting to highlight here if, for nothing else, to show how the designers of the game went to such great lengths to develop such a cohesive (and complicated) narrative. Figures 4.104.13 highlight these “updates” as they originally occurred.
