MeiGeist - best ARG of 2007


MeiGeist Alternate Reality Game, developed by Hazel Grian  during her Watershed/HP Labs artist placement last year, was named as the most outstanding ARG of 2007 by players and critics. It triumphed ahead of World Without Oil, The Lost Experience and Year Zero, huge Alternate Reality Games with million dollar budgets.

US-based ARG producers commented: “MeiGeist was pretty amazing” (Marie Lamb of World Without Oil); “MeiGeist came out of nowhere. It was so well done, definitely a nice surprise for the year.” (Brooke Thompson).
