What is Media Wars?
Media Wars is an Alternate Reality Game.
An Alternate Reality Game (ARG for short) combines the best elements of viral media, role playing games and blending fantasy with reality.
The key feature of an ARG is that it does not present itself as a game per-se: it gives the outward appearance of being a real-life adventurous situation, just something the player has stumbled upon. However, an ARG is distinctly a game. The games consist — for the most part — of tracking down clues scattered across the real and virtual world and assembling them to solve a mystery.
The way Media Wars is played is quite unique and really, first of its kind. Majority of the game takes place on the website, MediaWars.co. The game is centered around social media. Within the site you will find news stories, videos, blog posts, emails and even a Twitter like feature, called Buzzer.
