Virginia wrote about this on Screens a little while back but I only just stumbled across it. It is a bit of an interesting project that HBO seems to experimenting with. The videos can be found at - www.hbovoyeur.com
By themselves they are very cool. You watch the stories as if you are a peeping tom peering thorough people’s windows with binoculars. I haven’t had a chance to watch all the videos, but I’m impressed with what I’ve seen so far. There are also rumours that more videos will be added as time goes by. The ARG element comes from “artifacts” that characters have left on the web and in the real world that allow you to better understand the stories.
There is also a blog entitled The Story Gets Deeper that is run by HBO at it is the portal into the ARG aspect. I have glanced over it and it seems to have become a little meta recently. The author claims to be a digital writer that HBO hired to document the project, but recently the characters from the videos have begun contacting him.
I’m not a big ARG fan, I think the concept is interesting I just haven’t come across one that really appeals to me yet. I do really like HBO though so I think I shall keep an eye on this one.
