Last night, numerous ARG community members received unsolicited phonecalls (cue Mystery ARG Theatre theme music). The voice on the other end of the line said something like, “the City of Domes is now accepting citizens,” then hung up.
After much discussion in the #unfiction chatroom, players discovered www.cityofdomes.net, which, based on keywords in the source code, seems to be laying the groundwork for some sort of game based on the 70’s sci-fi film Logan’s Run. Players who emailed the site received an autoresponse with a small puzzle that led to an AIM screen name.
In addition, the domain registration is masked by an anonymous proxy service, which is usually a dead giveaway to an ARG-related website. Speculation points to VirtuQuest’s previous announcement of a summer ARG, but it’s obviously way to soon to come to any conclusions. Although, if I was a betting man….
We’ll keep an eye on this one and keep you posted.
