These fully-fledged ARGs are confirmed to be the "real deal"; they may include puzzles, characters, and plotlines which the community can interact with. Active ARGs are currently being discussed within the Game Detectives community, and are frequently yielding new developments. Closed ARGs are those that have been completed, cancelled, or are otherwise inactive.


Official ARGs tend to be fairly high-profile, and of generally high quality. Official ARGs may involve existing media; for example, a game developer may include clues to their ARG inside one of their games. As a result, official ARGs tend to attract a large audience.

Unofficial ARGs are typically smaller in scope than official ARGs. Some were created by members of the Game Detectives community, or were made with Game Detectives in mind. Unofficial ARGs tend to have a smaller audience than official ones.

These are trails which have been investigated by the community, but have yet to conclude in anything substantial. Alternatively, these may have concluded in the discovery of an easter egg rather than a full-blown ARG.
