The Tulse Luper Journey
Allow me to merely introduce this next game to you without a more lengthy review. I will leave the reviewing for the trail-blazing adventurers among you to populate the comments with your discoveries. A game that claims to offer 92 puzzles should keep many of you busy for quite some time to come; 18 months, in fact, is the duration of the game, which started maybe a few months ago...
The Tulse Luper Journey is an "online adventure game through modern history" that is part of an ambitious series of multi-media projects initiated by film director Peter Greenaway and based on the adventures of Tulse Luper: "a man who spends most of his life as a prisoner, mistaken as someone important - a spy, lover, artist, writer and observer."
It is being described as a "multiplayer" game, one that features 92 puzzles to solve and a community of players whose assistance you will need to seek for reconstructing the life of the mysterious lead character through pieces of a film.
"In the last century, an extraordinary man called Tulse Luper archived his entire life in 92 suitcases. It seems he was a witness to several key events in the 20th century."
It appears that the purpose of the game, and other supporting media, is to experience the 20th century Tulse Luper story through means of new media, thereby leveraging the connectedness of our 21st century society for its unique dissemination. And though it appears to have the characteristics of an alternate reality game (ARG), I did not find any mention of it on ARGN.com.
And with that I will leave you to ponder and to explore this mysterious game produced by Submarine channel.
