Activity: Talk or presentationLecture and oral contribution


Alternate Reality Games (ARGs) feature collective and immersive participation in a gameplay that takes place in the real-world setting of the players. ARGs are games that are designed as a mix of performance, puzzle-solving, city exploration, and immersive participation, often engaging thousands of players. The ARGs are unique for their way of interacting with the players making them heroes in their own world based on advanced collective puzzles-solving in a conspiracy setting, that they never know if is real... - or just a game.
