Everything you've read on the 'net is true.
The Eclectic Meme conspiracy is a postmodern website/ book/ RPG online game that depicts a post peak oil world where occult magic, fairy slavery, nanotechnology and genetic mutations have changed humanity as we know it. Drawing from popular culture and the mass media, it serves as a chronicle of the volumes of information we consume daily.
Drawing from the works of Robert Anton Wilson, Noam Chomsky, ColdCut and John Oswald, Baudrillard, James Joyce, Umberto Eco, Stan Lee and Walt Disney, we appropriate the every day imagery that iconifies our lives into little squares of social media content.
Built on our JiGS game engine, the game is designed to grow over years adapting to the players and creators as they spin their virtual narrative.
We are proud to announce the launch of the prototype of our new Joomla Interactive Game System, and the first universe to be built using this system - The Eclectic Meme Conspiracy - based on the online book/soap opera of the same name.
Building the game has allowed us examine user experience, content management and data from ways we would not expect to encounter on normal CMS type websites and you can check out the various posts we written on the more general aspects of virtual world development from muds and moos to MMORGs.
While the code is still unstable and more importantly insecure,rather than put the code onto the JED (Joomla Extension Directory, we will host it on Github, where a certain level of expertise is expected to installing this engine.
