I posted this somewhere way back when, but I thought I'd post it here. This is just a little ARG history for entertainment purposes.
I have an old friend from Seattle who works for a internet media company. His company did a 'cyber-mystery novel' back in the late '90s, when most folks were on 28.8 modems.
Anyway, it's worth checking out, from a historical perspective. I finally found a link to a place where it's stored:
Each numbered directory is one episode (.../cypher/01/..., .../cypher/02/..., etc.). This was originally released episodically every week, with a total of 12 episodes.
I think it was very well done, especially considering the limitations at the time.
Anyway, it's kind of fun to take a look at something like this from the beginning of the internet era.
