If you have arrived here, you’re probably wondering what’s going on.
Simply put, you’ve arrived at this web page because you stumbled upon something related to “The Double Date”, a custom Alternate Reality Experience. “The Double Date” is a seemingly real, interactive experience crafted specifically for two individuals who were the winning bidders in a very real charity auction in May 2011. Those two people are the “participants” in “The Double Date” experience.
“The Double Date” consists of fictional characters, companies and events, all of which reside in the real world and are slowly being discovered by the two participants. The participants must uncover clues, solve puzzles and navigate the experience, all in order to reach a once-in-a-lifetime double date in September 2011. The fact that you are reading this page likely means you inadvertently stumbled upon one of those fictional characters, companies or other elements, and then clicked on a “What’s this?” link to try and figure out just what the heck was going on.
Curious? Want to play along?
After “The Double Date” concludes in September 2011 and the two participants have completed their custom experience, detailed information about how “The Double Date” worked, the challenges and puzzles the participants faced, and more will be posted and shared here. In addition, a sequel to “The Double Date” will be designed specially for the winner(s) of a second charity auction to be held in Fall 2011.
So watch this space and perhaps you could be the next person to experience a custom “Double Date” adventure.
