The Lost Experience Time Capsule...

Welcome! We wanted all our visitors to know that we've abandoned this blog as a "time capsule" or a tribute to The Lost Experience. Many readers and commenters developed a sense of community through the Experience and we wanted to help this wonderful aspect of the game continue on past the summer. To facilitate the proliferation of the Lost community, we've created a new blog dedicated exclusively to episode by episode discussions of Season 3 of LOST. Click HERE to visit The Lost Community. Everyone is welcome to join us!

Who knows, we may get to un-mothball the site, if TPTB ever start giving us more updates on what is going on with Mittlewerk and THF-V.3! Oh yes, and Ms. Blake-Hanso.

I've some thought on Lost you all might be interested in. Essentially, Lost is a Creation Myth for the new millenium. Henry Gale/Ben is the Second Christ, identified by the Christ wound given him by Danielle and the Bros K book - in Dostoyevski's classic the Prisoner is the Christ - Google Quigley in Exile.

The LOST Experience was an alternate reality game (ARG) that supported Season 2 of the hit ABC television show LOST. The resulting campaign was one of the most complex multi-channel campaigns ever attempted that blurred the line between fiction/reality and offline/online. This experience took LOST fans through a parallel storyline revolving around the fictional organization, The Hanso Foundation.

Storyline Authenticity: Above all else, the ARG should feel real. Cleverly placed product placement can enhance the storyline rather than detract from it by blurring the line between game and reality. ARG gamers tend to resent overt commercialism but are willing to "put up with" and sometimes fully embrace marketing tie-ins as long as they support the game, create intrigue and keep the spirit of the game in play. To present a believable story world or alternate reality, everything within the game reality (e.g. phone numbers, websites, etc.) must react appropriately to reinforce that this is not a game (TINAG). True ARG gamers appreciate and react favorably when the ARG "puppet masters" (game facilitators) go to great lengths to make it seem real.

ARG Intelligence: Maintain role as "Puppet Master" running the game from behind the "Curtain," by constantly monitoring the gamer boards, identifying key gamers, and mining intelligence data from them without revealing yourself while the game is running. Be willing to follow the lead of the gamers. Some of the best content and ideas came from monitoring gamer speculation/theories and then developing content to support the best theories.

Controlled Congruency: Creative and strategic coordination, including cross-promotional opportunities, are necessary among all partners and sponsors. It is imperative that all members of the ARG team/partnership know what the others are doing -- at all times. ARG gamers are VERY savvy and are constantly trying to "break the game" by finding inconsistencies in the ARG execution. The more layers of authenticity, the more they dig. The more they dig, the more layers of authenticity they should find.

Flexibility: Being able to alter the storyline is crucial. The ARG story is broken into pieces which the audience must find and assemble. For example, having the ability to tell some back story first, then execute in present day, and revert to back story at the end allows the game to flow naturally.

Creative Curiosity: Not all of questions need to be answered, and introducing a "red herring" can actually enhance the game experience (e.g. the vintage Jeep TV spot on youtube.com that didn't lead to anything, but did engage the gamers for some time). The key is to balance the dead ends with elements that keep the game moving.

LetYourCompassGuideYou.com "The Playes" comments

I'd never heard of ARG's till The Lost Experience and was blown away by it's scope -websites, telephone numbers, published books, fake newspaper ads.

—— Posted by Annie @ http://wilwheaton.typepad.com/wwdnbackup/2006/05/the_lost_experi.html

It’s the most sophisticated product placement I’ve seen yet. Hats off to Lost and Jeep for drawing me in for 45 minutes and making it time well spent.

——Posted by Deanna Zammit @ http://adweek.blogs.com/adfreak/2006/05/losts_plot_thic.html

"let your compass guide you...... anyone think to check the Jeep website and looking at the new 2007 Jeep Compass to see if there's anything there..... i think it's excellent marketing strategies.. i haven't found one clue but that Jeep compass is pretty nice... lol"

Some interesting "confidential" documents between Hanso Coporation and Chrysler

——Himbo @ http://lost-forum.com/showthread.php?t=39800&page=3

“Thanks very much! Now they're coming to get me?!?!”

I rather like Lost's approach. The advertiser is weaved more seamlessly and believably into the storyline, plus the most important part of those site (subLYMONal & letyourcompassguideyou) are the passwords to additional Persephone messages on the Hanso Foundation site.

I like it.

—— Posted by Seth @ http://wilwheaton.typepad.com/wwdnbackup/2006/05/the_lost_experi.html

Just an observation on sponsors and marketing...."Please Help Me" video was posted on youtube just a few hours ago and has been viewed over 1,000 times.

Other videos on the jeepchannel have only been viewed around 30-50 times, even though they've been up several weeks.

Just a proof point that hiding clues at the sponsor site does drive traffic. I probably know a lot more about the Jeep compass than the average person after combing through their site repeatedly.
