Assistance wanted for fandom-based ARG launching soon
be involved as much or as little as you want
I've been building an ARG for the last few months entirely solo and am trying to make myself admit that I could not only use, but would like, some help. So I'm going to give this a shot. I want to minimize how many details I give out in public... but will say that it's a fandom-based ARG, and therefore I'd like to recruit other fans since I think they'll enjoy it the most. Because I'm trying to keep it a complete secret, I will only say that it's not a US-produced property but does have worldwide exposure. If you think you may be interested, PM me and I will give you the project codename in confidence. If you're a fan of the property in question, you'll get it.
Commitment time frame: game needs to launch in some capacity on May 21st - could run through early next year. Will run at minimum through July.
I have only two real requirements:
- be committed to keeping secrets
- don't flake out without good reason
Some skills you might have (but are not required):
- web design (particularly if you can handle more complex coding work)
- familiarity with social media (Twitter and Tumblr specifically)
- graphic design (PS, AI)
- puzzle design (would be great if you have experience, but passion is okay too)
- good communication skills and/or creative writing skills
If you're interested in being a partner and not just a minion, that'd be ideal. I'd love to have other people invovled in the PM work, as much or as little as they have time and interest for. I've been laying out plans that are flexible depending on how much interest there is from players/number of players, and this could ultimately be quite large-scale.
All of this can be carried out online, with one exception:
I am looking for assistance for a PHYSICAL EVENT at San Diego Comic-con (pending being sure I've got my is dotted and ts crossed). If you will be attending (I will), that would be a big bonus.
I may in future ALSO be looking for clue planters, based anywhere in/near a reasonably large city. If you're interested in just that, feel free to contact me and I'll have you on file.
Basically leave me a message here or PM me. Feel free to ask questions.
