Continuum: The Alternate Reality Game:
Continuum: The Alternate Reality Game breaks the fourth wall between story and audience, allowing players to engage with narrative through a variety of digital devices and real-world events.Events in the alternate reality game will closely mirror the events of each week’s episode Players of the game won’t need to watch every week, but it will certainly help. The object of the game is to be part of a nationwide online community that is trying to complete a visual puzzle.
Pieces will be assembled online by players from across the country.
Despite the national focus, special attention will be paid to Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, and Toronto. Various location-based gaming mechanisms will be deployed, including photo-matching of well-known areas with a rendering of their futuristic/2077 “counterpart” and augmented reality markers that act as clues.
