Australian ARG “Artefact” receives AFC funding

Thankyou Colin for the heads up on this great news. “Artefact”, an alternate reality game developed by Mini Studios, Stephen Sewell and Vudu Mobile, has received Strand V funding from the Australian Film Commission. The project is described as follows:

Famed Australian playwright and feature writer Stephen Sewell (Stephen Sewell) and Mini Vudu have teamed up to develop “Artefact”, a thriller sci fi Alternate Reality Game combining the traditional techniques of film story telling with Game Play and national live events.

Merging producer generated and user generated content, time shift delivery through on demand platforms and Kaos(TM) interactivity, “Artefeact” is the future of Telco based media entertainment.

It sounds like it may be an interesting EDU-type ARG too. Congrats Steve Kearney and Leanne Tonkes. I look forward to finding out more about this project.
