Several of you may have heard from this series and now i make a Thread for it on here, so we can discuss on a civil basis about the ARG.

So what is "Porcelain Spiders?"
From the \"Porcelain Spiders Wiki": wrote:
Ingame:
"Porcelain Spiders" is about a young woman named Jane who was given a bunch of tapes by her friend Alexa. Alexa was filming a movie when she quit rather dramatically and out of nowhere, saying she wanted to burn the footage and never talk about it again. Jane talked Alexa into giving her the tapes to hold on to, but after a year without contact Jane decided to turn them into an independent study project. As she began to watch the footage, however, she started to learn what had actually been going on while she and her friends were filming.

OOG:
From the \"Porcelain Spiders Wiki": wrote:
"Porcelain Spiders" is a re-imagining of how the events of the YouTube series Marble Hornets would come to pass if the identities of the characters were different. While planning to make their own slenderseries with a focus on diversity and representation, the cast and crew were told that fans of the genre didn't want more diversity because "it doesn't matter/won't change anything" and "any attempt at it will be obvious and feel shoehorned"; as if diverse casting was somehow both pointlessly unnoticeable and obnoxiously noticeable at the same time.

"Porcelain Spiders" allows the cast and crew to create their own brand new, fully unique ARG while also demonstrating why casting and character identities matter. They decided to do a re-make of an existing series because they want the audience to see the strings. They want people to be able to catch subtle characterization, plot and dialog decisions while also realizing that underrepresented identities can play out just as naturally as those in the original. In short, the decision to do a re-make allows people to compare and contrast, which you can feel free to do on this wiki.

NOTE: The cast and crew of Porcelain Spiders DO NOT THINK MARBLE HORNETS DID ANYTHING “WRONG.” This project is 50% meta demonstration of how naturally a diverse cast can fit into the genre and 50% homage to the series that started it all.

More infos can be found here, here, here and here. (all of them are OOG)


Here is the first video:

 
And you can find a playlist for the first 6 videos here.
and the rest of the already released videos:
 

Right now there are already 13 videos on the Porcelain Spiders Youtubechannel.
Here is the most current one:


This ARG also now has a Sidechannel named "latro", which has uploaded its first video a few days ago:

video description: wrote:
1031000102102002 133133 2013
can somebody please help trying to solve this code?

Ok, to summarize, here are the current  most important links (as of january 19th):
In-Game:


  • Porcelain Spiders YT Channel
  • "Latro" YT Channel
  • Tumblr-Blog of the main Character named "Jane D."

OOG:

  • Porcelain Spiders Wiki
  • (100+) porcelain spiders | Tumblr Tag
  • 1@+r0 - Porcelain Spiders Fan-tumblr
  • Slendy-Week PS tag

Please keep the discussion civil and leave arguments or trolling out of the thread!
And no, i am not working with anyone of the cast of this ARG, i just provide the infos and news!
(which is not hard to understand, since i basicly run a slenderverse-news-blog!)

Not many series are really creative with the names (just look at the MANY series where at least 1 of the characters has the name Alex Very Happy)

Thanks for posting Nidoking, because now i can update Very Happy

Ok, time for the update:

First of all, there was a post on Janes Blog from yesterday:
Jane on her blog wrote:
Just checking in, cause I don’t want any of you to be worried. Everything has been quiet, though that doesn’t mean I’ve slept well at all in the past week. None of the videos I’ve gone through since Entry 12 have anything of note on them, so at least there’s that. Hopefully it stays this way.

http://amaryllisjane.tumblr.com/post/73905956549/just-checking-in-cause-i-dont-want-any-of-you-to

Yeah but shortly after the post "latro" posted a new video:

There was another code in the video description, but this time it was a completely different from the one that was used in the first video:

Code in the description wrote:
NRMW GSV HKZXVH YVGDVVM

Apparently this code was already solved by some fast tumblr users.
And this comes out:
Quote :
MIND THE SPACES BETWEEN

And i tried to analyze the latro-video:

In the meantime Jane posted her reaction to the video on her Blog:
Janes reaction wrote:
Another video was posted to that youtube channel. It’s really distorted like the other one was and I couldn’t understand all of the audio but I don’t feel comfortable watching it again to figure it out.
I don’t know who you are but just stop making these videos and leave me alone.
http://amaryllisjane.tumblr.com/post/73945231256/another-video-was-posted-to-that-youtube-channel



can somebody with some audio-editing knowledge please try to seperate the whispering from the video and clear it up so that we can hear what it says?

I personally think it's a neat idea. The idea of purposefully remaking a Slenderseries is a pretty original idea.

New post on Janes blog:
Quote :
Sorry I got quiet again. I’m still fine in case you were worried. I just wanted to let you all know that I finally remembered which nursing school Tammy went to (I think) so I have a coworker trying to look her up for me on Facebook since I don’t have one. Nothing’s come up yet but I told him it’s pretty important so he’s willing to message a student or two to ask about her. I gave him a screen shot of her from Entry #9; hopefully that helps. He’s doing it in exchange for me covering two of his shifts though, so expect me to either be in class, at work or asleep for pretty much all this week.
And thank you again for all your support and feedback.
So she will try to contact Tammy (Tims counterpart) first? And Tammy was (or still is) at a nursing school? Interesting^^
