15 Years Celebration



A major milestone has been reached! Together, you’ve collectively spent 15 years playing The Black Watchmen! That’s 15 years of research into the darkest corners of humanity, 15 years of deciphering ancient occult texts, researching fake websites, tracking down NPCs on social media and LinkedIn, and 15 years of solving some of the most complex puzzles on the internet.

To mark this occasion, agents, we want to collect your fondest memories since you joined the agency. To show our gratitude, we will give away a mystery crate. Handcrafted with the help of Agent Blacklake, this mysterious mystery crate is filled with mystic mysteries for your mystification, that will deeply impact the lore of The Black Watchmen and set the stage for Season 3.



Please send your stories using the following online forms. Every story we receive will be entered in our unique giveaway! We'll be taking submissions until March 31.

New DLC





Agent, you're expertise are needed immediately for a special operation. The successful completion of Operation ROLLINGVIPER has lead us to uncover a new threat - The Crimson Library, a site found only on the dark web, that shows unimaginable evil. Exposure to this site is known to cause insanity and violent outbursts. With the help of Agent Wheeler and NITE Team 4, you must investigate the source of the site and stop the spread of this madness. In the Alone in the Dark Web DLC, you’ll need to complete all 24 in-client puzzles in a whole new mission set that brings you to the brink of the dark web—and insanity.



This DLC is unlike any previous The Black Watchmen content. We are experimenting with new puzzle mechanics, alternative narrative approaches and human subject… well, let’s just say we’re trying something new, and we would love to get feedback on your experiences. You can tell us all about it, and meet your fellow agents, here.



The difficulty level of the DLC is higher, as it is aimed at more seasoned TBW agents. We encourage all our players to enjoy the DLC, but would suggest not starting with this Spec Ops.

Recensioni

“If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, The Black Watchmen is an excellent introduction to alternate reality games, successfully merging an engaging fictional world with real-world activities and challenging puzzles that are best solved collaboratively with other players.”
4.5/5 – Adventure Gamers

“The puzzles are clever, the storyline is engaging, and the eerie background music and creepy videos help set the stage for sinister happenings.”
5/5 – Gameinformer

“It gains a fantastic sense of a world, a real mystery to sink into, a web of secrets on the web, a sense of being part of something bigger.”
Positive – Rock, Paper, Shotgun

Informazioni sul gioco

Warning:


This is not your typical game: The Black Watchmen is unlike any other game on Steam. You will have the opportunity to complete tasks unique to PARGs. You must be prepared: There is no virtual world, and you have no in-game avatar. You have an agent name, your wits, and the support of the community, that is all. The game exists in the real world, and many times during missions you will be interacting with real world entities (players, businesses, organizations, etc.).

You will not be able to complete this game alone. Only with the help of the community will you be able to rise through the ranks, and become a veteran agent of The Black Watchmen.

Pricing

You are buying Season 1, which gives you access to:
  • 25 in-game missions
  • 65 puzzles to solve
  • 5 hidden missions (unlocked by obtaining “puzzle pieces” or secret answers in-game)
  • Community sandbox missions

Season 2 is an optional DLC and includes:
  • 30 in-game missions featuring an expanded narrative
  • 82 puzzles to solve
  • 5 new hidden missions

The World of The Black Watchmen


The Black Watchmen are a paramilitary group dedicated to protecting the public from dangerous phenomena beyond human understanding: ritualistic murder, occult secret societies, and paranormal activity, to name but a few.

As a global organization, The Black Watchmen offer a wide range of skills and services for covert missions anywhere in the world, on behalf of any group, corporation or government that can afford them. Often called in as a last resort, The Black Watchmen pride themselves on their discretion, strength and efficiency.

To maintain objectivity in the field, you, as an agent, are never informed of the identity of the client. You are given only mission parameters and told how to distinguish friend from foe, but the lines are often blurred…

Gameplay Overview


A traditional video game has clear parameters - it is played on a screen, within a virtual world, and exists solely within that space. A PARG (Permanent Alternate Reality Game), like The Black Watchmen, uses the real world as its game world, blurring the lines between fiction and reality, turning everyday interactions into game mechanics.

Gameplay Features

  • Gameplay: Different missions require different skill-sets.
    • Crack ancient codes and investigate bizarre occurrences
    • Join a squadron of soldiers raiding a rupture site
    • Hack through the virtual defenses of your enemies
    • Research an occult group and uncover hidden connections
  • All Around You: The game is played using coded websites, wikis and real world references.
  • Mission Hub: An interface that acts as a hub for information, mission briefings, puzzles, and more.
  • Agent Map: See the locations of your fellow agents around the world, and keep an eye out for potential location-based missions.
