Update #6

The Game is Live

3 comments

The past two months we've been spending all our spare time designing, coding, shooting, writing and testing the numerous elements of the ARG. And we're happy to announce that all aspects of the game are now operational.

Enchanting & Obsoletus

Rex Higg's site is live with tons of backstory about his collection as well as the history he has discovered on J.H. and Jane Winthrop. Plus you can learn about the events of late May and early June that led to Rex's assault & ultimate disappearance from the public eye.

Once Rex skipped town to protect himself, Appoline, along with some of Rex's friends, stepped in to solve the mystery. Rex left behind the Time Switch he built based on the patent he found, but he hid the device in an unknown building in Miracle Mile in Los Angeles. Appoline & friends managed to post a live video feed showing the Time Switch and encourage anyone in LA to assist in retrieving the messages that are being broadcast.

Also on the site are private message boards where Appoline, Rex's friends and our players can gather to discuss the latest happenings. In order to protect this information from AIC, the forum does require the viewer to register before entering. But we must all be careful with a company like AIC out there!

Agent Intellect Corp

Earlier this month, the AIC site came online. With its description of risky investment practices and a history of unprecedented returns, AIC appears to be a financial corporation worth watching. And, lucky you, they are open to accepting new clients via a form on their Investor Relations page. 

Many employees of AIC have been identified on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, despite the corp's discouragement of social media connections. We feel that these employees may be putting the company at risk by exposing too much inside information as well as leaving it vulnerable to social engineering attacks.

Cassandra

A third party has emerged in the struggle between Rex Higgs and Agent Intellect Corp: Cassandra. Little is known about her besides her extreme interest in AIC's activities. We expect there is more to come as she encourages people to 'Fight AIC'.

Backer Rewards

They are coming soon! Getting the ARG up and running was priority number one and why you pledged in the first place. Now we are finishing up the materials for rewards and will be shipping very soon. Remember, if your address has changed, please message us through Kickstarter or send an email to miraclemilearg@gmail.com with correct information.

Thanks for your support & we hope you'll dive in to the game soon!

      Got my package in the mail today (finally!) While it contained both of the t-shirts I ordered, it was missing Rex's card and the promised MMP sticker. The letter from Jane was a happy surprise, but I hope the missing items don't indicate a lack of attention to the details. We have a lot more to discover, and I want to hope that the game continues to be rich, deep, and involving, even to those of us not in LA. Looking forward to my phone call as the game unfolds.

      will we be too far behind if we wait for the reward to use the card a the rabbit hole?
