Two of the players of the Charlotte is Becoming Real ARG are frantically packing their bags for a free, last-minute weekend trip to Berlin, Germany. Others are cursing the fact that they let their passport expire four years ago (ahem).
It all started a little over a month ago when several ARGers received scuffed up cassette recorders in the mail. On the microcassette inside each recorder was a portion of an interview with an author who is suffering from a curious condition. Her condition seems to be that everything she writes in her books comes true soon after. It didn’t take long for players to connect the tapes to the recently released book, Therapy by Sebastian Fitzek. The interviews were excerpts from the fictional book.
