Scotoma is an Alternate Reality Game about human trafficking which is played using the Internet. It blends reality and fiction by using real world media as a platform for telling a fictional story that pretends to be real. In Scotoma, you are given the possibility of becoming an investigative researcher trying to find a missing person, but you’ll have to descend into the dark parts of the Internet in order to find out what happened. So get ready to sharpen your eyes, you will need them down there. After all, seeing is believing, isn’t it?
