ANNOUNCEMENTS

Hello, everyone. In this time of unusually high ARG-related activity, I would like to remind you that this ARG's continuation will be confirmed by Alex Hall himself (most likely via his Twitter) when it happens, and that information will be relayed here. Some things may happen, and I'm not going to go into any detail, but I politely ask that when this becomes relevant, do not pester Alex about it. Do with this information what you will!

Yesterday, Night Mind uploaded a video that gives a pretty detailed rundown of this ARG. This video is the absolute best one so far. The amount of detail and work put into it makes the work done here on this wiki worthwhile. Funnily enough, there's a part late in the video in which he talks about the "How long until this blessing becomes a curse?" cipher, and the reason this is funny is that the full version of that cipher has only recently been added to the page it's found on. Just a cool cause-and-effect I've noticed, and I'm glad this wiki had the opportunity to be a small part of it! You can find that video here.

Just make sure you show appreciation to your content creators. They do a lot for the fans, and they deserve recognition for it. Night Mind pumped out a fine video, some mysterious dudes are currently running a related ARG, and Alex Hall gave us this game we're still waiting on still talking about! There are many others who have kept this topic alive on their own YouTube channels, so if you happen upon any, give them a shout and make sure they know how important their work is.

I hope you guys have fun. - CircleHunter, 6/23/16

ABOUT THE ARG

The Haunted Cartridge ARG (commonly called BEN DROWNED) follows the story of a malevolent entity called BEN, which a college student under the alias "Jadusable" discovered in an old copy of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Initially posted on 4chan, the story turned into an alternate reality game when the players unknowingly helped release BEN onto the Internet. In their attempts to stop it, players stumbled across the Moon Children, a cult that somehow had ties to BEN. Various characters and players - Ifrit, Rosa, Alex, and Ryukaki - tried to take on BEN and failed, sacrificing themselves so we may have a chance to defeat him.

Quick Overview of things to keep in mind as you view the wiki:

  • The ARG is on a hiatus. The creator of the ARG, Alex Hall, put the project on hold in July of 2011 to work on an indie movie project. He has expressed the will to return to the ARG once the movie is complete.
  • Much of the ARG's information has been lost or destroyed due to websites and forums being taken down. Alex claims to have a majority of the website information saved but will not release any of it until he returns to the ARG. The forums had no back-ups and the information is permanently lost.
  • Several relevant videos have been taken down from the ARG's YouTube pages. They can still be viewed on the wiki.
  • Within Hubris, which was taken down due to a police report, has been recreated by the community as a "general interests" forum. Please note this is not canon and is not supported by Alex Hall.
