Alphabound: The Game is the End

Some curiosities. Please take a look at the following funding request for what is presumably an ‘ARG’ called Alphabound: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/alphabound-the-game-is-the-end

There is currently an ongoing discussion at Unfiction with some interesting thoughts.

This may be of interest to some of you: no discussion of this ‘game’ is currently allowed on GLP. All links connected to the images below and the main page are autobanned. Strange, huh?

According to speculation from Unfiction, decoding the wheel that appears on the game’s page leads to a site called Sleep Longerunder the dubious heading ‘Trisomnem’. This is another very strange site that warrants its own blog entry.

The description is as follows:

Goal

Create an apocalypse that will abide by the structure and modalities of a video game, allowing players to transcend this earth and become godlike beings in another world.

The end is coming. Will you be called to play?

We are the ones who will create worlds. We are those who dream. Help Alphabound and join us on an adventure of friendship and discovery to become a new god– or don’t, and doom yourself to remain on the dying husk of the earth when the destined have all departed. 

Of particular interest, if you scroll further down:

Methods

With the money we raise we will use all methods available to us to research and create this reality changing game. The more money we receive the more avenues we will be able to explore, including:

  • Advanced AI Programming and Computer Graphics
  • Quantum Physics
  • Theoretical Physics
  • Lucid Dreaming
  • Astral Travel
  • Metaphysics
  • Recursive Genetics
  • Applied Memetic
  • Ancient Prophecies
  • Witchcraft
  • etc

Now there are a variety of ARGs that hit upon these very notable themes, and I don’t think they bear overlooking. Because I understand that typically ARG pages tend to disappear as the game progresses, I have saved the pictures appearing on this website for future reference.
