What is this?
CXD is an alternate-reality game created by Mike (Auggie) Augustine. CXD began as a 6-month project funded by a grant from local philanthropy lab People's Liberty, and footage of the original experience can be found HERE.
In its current iteration (the vending machine), the game lives on as a self-funded project.
Why is this?
The intent of CXD is to provide a unique, fun, and intriguing experience that helps people to explore their neighborhoods through a narrative adventure.
When and where will new missions be released?
Although both Training Modules 1 and 2 faced many unexpected setbacks (from the pandemic to supply chain issues to infrastructure delays) I am hoping to release full missions every few months. Depending on its success, there is also a major update that may occur in the later half of 2023 that I think would be very exciting.
I am also hoping to expand to nearby cities in 2023 (fingers crossed!)
Who else has been a part of this project?
Auggie would like to give special thanks to friends who have tested the experience and offered their expertise, including Jesse Deegan, Kelli Lang, Brian Garber, Scott Stubblebine, Dan Egnor, Michael Andersen, Tommy Honton, David Spira, and more.
