A solid, if dated and biased, look into the ARG genre2015年7月18日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
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 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
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 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
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!

Lots to learn here from Dave Szulborski(RIP), who has recently been named "World's Most Prolific ARG Developer" by Guinness World Records 2012 Gamer's Edition.
