“Frammenti” was released in 2009 and it was Italy’s first Alternate Reality Game. It consisted of a television series and an online game of solving enigmas collaboratively. The development of the project is here retraced basing on interviews lead with its director, screenwriter, game designer. Since the budget was limited, production had to get creative and resourceful in the way they strengthened the emergent narrative by getting involved in first person with the players, both in the virtual and real world.
