|The Petscop ARG involves a playthrough of an obscure, unreleased PS1 game.|
The Petscop ARG revolves around an obscure PS1 game called Petscop. The game was unearthed by a YouTuber named Paul, who has sporadically been uploading videos of the game on his YouTube Channel. As Paul's playthrough progressed, it became clear that there was far more to Petscop than initially met the eye.
This ARG is currently being investigated by the /r/Petscop community, who can also be found on Discord. A comprehensive Google Doc of the progress so far can be found here, and the Wikia can be found here.

On May 31st, 2017, the tenth video was uploaded to YouTube. This is the second video (after #9) to feature footage of a demo play of the game before actual play footage indicating that the camera was left recording while the game was idle on the start screen. All demo plays keep up with what progress Paul has done in the previous videos.
