All hail the Alternate Reality Games (ARG) Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Independent Game Developers Association (IGDA)! Yes, that’s the ARG SIG of IGDA. I’m happy to be a founding member, and I’m even happier to not be involved in the running of the SIG, given my vanishingly small amounts of free time. However, I’m looking forward to taking part, and I think that the SIG has the potential to truly improve alternate reality games. It really demonstrates how far ARGs have come in four years, that we have our own dedicated SIG for the genre now.
