The world of gaming is ever-expanding, with new genres and sub-genres cropping up all the time, and fresh facilities making game creation far more accessible to up-and-coming indie talents. And, with all of this advancement, a new form of interactive storytelling has been quietly evolving in the background and is slowly beginning to make itself known to the mass populace – ARGs and Unfiction projects.
As someone who has been a part of the ARG community for many years now, I’ve been chomping at the bit to finally talk about it at length. So please sit back, grab the nearest cryptid for a cuddle, and make yourself a warm cup of elder blood, as we dive into what exactly ARGs and Unfiction are, how to differentiate between the two, and why I think they’re one of the most exciting phenomena to enter the gaming world. Of course, I’ll also recommend some of my favourite ARGs, and provide a couple of great content creators to guide you through them.
