The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, September 20, 2015 9:21 PM


Jess Zimmerman:  "ARGs aren't virtual reality games; they take place in the real world, and they often require no tools except for the internet and maybe a phone. They're not augmented reality games, where a phone app (for example) reveals hidden digital elements in real-world locations. They're more like living in a novel. "
