We Tell Stories
As well as being six stories by six Penguin authors, We Tell Stories is an ARG, designed by Six To Start, set to be launched once the six interactive fictions have all been published over the coming weeks. There are, though, already some little ARGish clues peppered through the map text of the first story: the addresses of container companies, prominent mentions of easily-visited places (various rooms in the Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh for example), and a ‘phone number: 020 8133 8141.
I rang, and heard this:
I’ve made a terrible mistake. I need your help.
I have a story to tell you, but it will only make sense in the right place.
If you stand face to face with the statue of John Betjeman in St. Pancras station, ring this number: 020 7193 3154.
Then I’ll be able to explain more.
As luck would have it, I’ll be in St. Pancras Station tomorrow morning…
