whitten with love of the topic (if not great writing)2017年1月11日に英国でレビュー済み
I would be wrong to say this is a great book, it would be wrong to say Mr Szulborski was a great writer, however it's the best book on the topic you're going to find, and it does give a real hands on account of being a creator of alternate reality games by someone with total passion for the topic.

A solid, if dated and biased, look into the ARG genre2015年7月18日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
This is an insider's look at the early days of alternate reality gaming, as the author apparently was a major creative force behind many of the ARGs of the early to mid 2000s. He does a good job of chronicling the notable highs and lows of the first waves of the genre, as someone who saw most of it unfold. Because it's now a decade old, and the ARG 'phenomenon' still seems like it's finding it's way, the book does feel dated, and the sample ARG he created as a companion to the book (in Appendix G) is no longer functioning (likely because the author died in 2008). Szulborski's writing is generally good but just a bit informal or amateurish in places for me, in part because of his obvious love for the genre and belief in its potential - this is not a dispassionate view of ARGs as a medium. However, I still found it a solid and useful introduction to the genre.
Great book on ARGs2010年10月4日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
This is Not a Game is an interesting take on the ARG/Transmedia genre's early years (1999-2005ish) from the perspective of a player turned independent ARG designer. While not exactly encyclopedic and covering every game from that time period, it does a good job of looking at the early foundations and some of the big names as well as their aftermath and a case study of a couple indie-games that came afterwards. Its a great into to people new to the genre, that may have missed The Beast, Majestic, and any others from that time period.
Really good explanation of an esoteric subject2013年6月24日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
I enjoyed reading this book, even though I did not learn much from reading it, since I was already familiar with AR technology. This is a good introduction to AR and its possibilities. If you are not much into post-modernism or post-post-modernism and think reality is static and unchanging, beware...this book will challenge your assumptions!
