Revelations is an Alternate Reality Game (ARG) that follows the enigmatic trail created by a single man: Talib Saad. The game took place in Hyde Park, on the University of Chicago campus, in December 2011. On this journey, players could individually or collectively progress through a series of puzzles in order to uncover the truth behind a number of unsettling and “coincidental” events of 1969. This ARG was developed to take place over a few days without intervention from the puzzle master. Revelations makes use of a wide variety of media, both digital and physical, to construct puzzles and convey narrative. The game included an online survey, a recorded phone message made with an internet phone service, a flyer, a blog, marker graffiti, a live video feed, a poster, a small craft project comprised of pencils, strips of paper with writing on them, a cardboard box, two websites, an existing art installation, a defaced used book, and an email.
