Abstract

This MQP is a persistent alternate reality game. Alternate reality games are innovative games played across a variety of media in real time with the intention of immersing the player. Persistent alternate reality games are ones in which any player may start playing at any point in time. We wrote an original story, adapted it to the sequential style of the game, and created puzzles through which the game is played. When the game was fully-playable, we recruited playtesters and had them test the game. Finally, it was released to the public.
