Would You Spend $67 on a Book About Alternate Reality Games?

by Dan Koelsch

No need to clean your glasses, you read that headline right. There have been books and guides on Alternate Reality Games before, but the newest one carries a doozy of a price. The book, offered on Amazon, was released on November 23rd, and has the exceptionally long title “Alternate Reality Game: Narrative, Artificial intelligence, Video game, Multimedia, Internet, Perplex City, I Love Bees, Halo 2, Lost Experience, Lost (TV series), The Truth About Marika”. Sounds interesting, but it’s a whopping $67!





What could justify this cost? It’s hard to tell. The book is paperback and only 148 pages long, two things that usually lead lower prices. The description of the book just explains the concept of ARGs in a paragraph, so that’s not much help. If you find out why it’s so expensive, let us know!
