** However, the ''Pronunciation Book'' ARG is believed to be a continuation of ''This is My Milwaukee'', due to similar themes and the fact that both [=ARGs=] share the same creators (which people had already guessed even before it was revealed, thanks to domain registrations). It helps that ''TIMM'' is referenced in the adventure game ''Bear Stearns Bravo'' (which is [[WordOfGod explicitly]] part of the same project as ''PB'').

* ''This is My Milwaukee'' is a WebOriginal video for an ARG with a somewhat humorous bend. Appears to have died, unfortunately.
** However, due to similar themes and links between the believed creators (domain registrations being the main cause), the ''Pronunciation Book'' ARG is believed to be a continuation of ''This is My Milwaukee''.

* ''Film/{{Cloverfield}}'', come on. It all started with the short teaser trailer preceding ''Film/{{Transformers}}'', scaring audiences with a huge roar and the head of the Statue of Liberty. Even news channels ran stories about the mysterious advert, with only information being the release date as 1-18-08, and that J.J. Abrams was producing it. Later, the 1-18-08 site was updated with photos, some of which had messages written on the back. Then www.cloverfield.com with a text message number on it. And the whole slusho site, featuring cartoon characters with thought bubbles to completely random things (a fish dreaming of a hammer, etc.). Tagruato sites were put up, its backstory being a drilling company that provided the secret ingredient to Slusho!. Parallel to it was [=TidoWave=].com, an ecoterrorist group opposed to Tagruato. The ARG contributed to the experience as much as actually watching the film would.
** Its SpiritualSuccessor, ''Film/TenCloverfieldLane'', had an ARG of its own. It follows John Goodman's character, Howard Stambler [[http://tagruato.jp/employee_of_the_month_2016_february.php is an employee of Tagruato]] and his job as a telemetry analyst involves involves [[ArcWelding working with satellites]]. Following a URL from the t-shirt on his picture (Radio Man 70) leads to [[http://funandprettythings.com/ a website that belongs to his daughter Megan]] that contains a few hidden messages, revealing that he has a history of building bomb shelters and seems to know something huge enough that he's warning her of it and wants her to get into one of the shelters he built.

* The Buy n Large website, released by Creator/Pixar in the months leading up to the release of ''WesternAnimation/WallE'', was part this and part ViralMarketing. Although it didn't have the Game aspect, it was very heavy on the Alternate Reality aspect.

* The [[http://fantendo.wikia.com/wiki/Fantendo:Main_Menu Fantendo]] wiki had ''Little Lenny Penguin Breaks the Fourth Wall'', which possessed many ARG elements and was frequently updated during its heyday.



* ''[=ThisIsNotTom=]'' is one that was put out by Creator/JohnGreen. It required the player to solve a series of incredibly difficult puzzles just to find the next chapter of the story. It very much relied on the game part of ARG, as not participating in the game meant not being able to read the story part at all. Just to give an example of how difficult some of these puzzles were, one week the regular update didn't come. Why? Because even though the ARG had thousands of followers, not a single one had noticed a secondary puzzle hidden in the previous week's chapter, and the new chapter wouldn't come until the puzzle was solved.[[index]]
* ''ARG/{{Trick}}''. Made by a Fantendo user, it tells the story of candy people and their Halloween parties. It starts normal and funny. Then it get more darkier and edgier as it progresses. The users interact with the characters in order to make the story progress.[[/index]]
