The JadedMedia Experience, while not itself an Alternate Reality Game, deserves a spot on the ARG compendium through its relentless education of participants in skills and problem-solving abilities that may be required while ARGing.

JMX was a puzzle trail game, built to be solved collaboratively rather than singularly as had been the norm at the time. It was a progressive challenge incorporating many different forms of data-hiding techniques, including obfuscation, cryptography, steganography, and pure evil. We totally loved it and the six stages are still available to play through today.
