The Night Mind Index

I am a huge fan of the YouTube channel Night Mind.

I would never be one of those people that would go all “I was following these guys before they were cool,” I’ve been a follower for a long time. I love to see the care and that they put into their videos and analysis.

So when I learned they were putting their work into a user-generated collection of ARGs and unfiction, I was very excited.

It’s been live for a while and I do like checking in and seeing what’s going on.

If you have any interest in interactive fiction, ARGs, or horror and mystery, this is a great resource to check out.

You can find it HERE.

I had no idea that the new Vampire: The Masquerade video game was announced with an ARG

I don’t play video games like I used to, which is unfortunate. But it’s E3 season, which means I’m drooling over new trailers like Charlie Bucket smashing his face up in the window of the candy store. I want it all, but there’s no way I can afford it.

But in a weird crossover, one of my favorite YouTube channels, Night Mind, recently posted a very in depth breakdown of the ARG “Tender,” a promotional campaign for the new Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2.

It’s long, but worth a watch. They really breakdown the different elements of the game and how they fit together. It’s a good analysis of an ARG and a good case study to look at if you ever think of creating one of your own.

There’s also a really good interview with the writer at around the forty minute mark where they go into detail about the process of creating the ARG and what it was like working on it.
