Everything has a secret

I have a new game that I'm hoping to debut at State of Play IV - Singapore. (The conference on virtual worlds is still looking for sponsors, if you want to support the most interesting conference lineup I've been a part of ever!)

Here's how my participation is described by the organizers:

7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Dinner: Ubiquitous Metaverses
Traditional dinner talk, benign conspiracy or mind-bending event that threatens to unravel your understanding of reality? During this special session, the innovative pioneer of genre-defining alternate reality games (ARGs) and urban superhero games explains how pervasive communication technologies enable the creation of virtual worlds that immerse players in the physicality of real-world people, objects and spaces.

That's a rather daunting description to live up to, so I'm REALLY glad I have a crazy new idea I can't wait to deploy!

So what's the crazy new ubiquitous metaverse game? It's called Something Secret, and it has a future home. There's nothing here yet, but the URL is now mine:

I can't wait to post details, although it might wait until after I deploy (because I want to spring it on the State of Players and catch them unawares!) But for now... Think: benevolent conspiracy meets urban superhero games meets blobjects.

Sounds intriguing! I was immediately reminded of a great quote that has become one of my favorites -- "Anything will reveal its secrets if you love it enough" -- and then I remembered that I first read this on your homepage (doh!)

BTW, do you know about PostSecret?

"PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard."

Good to see you're ready to unleash some dark play on the unsuspecting public.
