ABOUT GameDetectives

Game Detectives

Hello and welcome! The Game Detectives community aims to be an engaging, inclusive, friendly platform dedicated to playing and solving ARGs (Alternate Reality Games) and other cryptographic or puzzle-based events and games. Our community was originally called Steam Sale Detectives and existed as a subreddit dedicated to uncovering the mysteries surrounding the Steam Winter 2015 Sale. This investigation proved very popular, and a Discord chat server was created for real-time investigation discussion.

In a short time, our community had grown to over 14,000 members. Shortly after the Steam sale event concluded, we changed our name to encompass a broader spectrum of ARGs and mysteries, including those separate from Steam. To facilitate this, an entirely new subreddit was created, which today is known as Game Detectives.

Since then, a committed community has rallied and solidified, seating themselves as a distinct force in the puzzle-solving scene. Major ARGs we have contributed to include the Eye Sigil ARG, Frog Fractions 2, Sombra ARG, Battlefield 1, Waking Titan, and many more. The core of our community is a Discord server which contains discussion on current ARGs, as well as various community chat topics.

Hi, I'm commenting about the weird sigil-thing found in over 15 indie games. I think it looks a LOT like the key card from DooM 3, does it not?

Nice design, gotta agree! Petition to have it as a Steam badge! :D
