For those who are interested in the backstory of the game, especially the backstory of kingsmouth island, one of the locations in the game:
Notable twitter messages are going from:
I have to say that its quite exciting to read and feel the events as if they are actually happening in the real world. ARGs of TSW are surprisingly done well and it offers the would-be-players a view into on how it all(the story and lore) began - from Amundsen's expedition into arctic(which smells strangely similar to H.P.Lovecraft's "At The Mountains of Madness"), to the affairs and manipulations between various societies(including the npc ones) to the kingsmouth.
I have to give props on whoever is designing it. The "photos" and visual material in ARG feels very creepy.
From the latest tweets it seems that the next "big thing" in kingsmouth will happen this sunday.

Yeah I was following this game for a bit till I realized I wasn't smart enough for it.
Drop the next-gen marketing and people will argue if the game itself has merit.
The middle road is the place to be!

Ah, I remember the ARG (= alternate roleplaying game, had to look it up the first time I encountered the term) and the Kingsmouth tweets from last Spring, but then it got really quiet, no activity for months on them.
So you're saying they've started again? Hmm, gonna take a look at the official site then.
edit: I checked the official forums, couldn't find any recent updates of the Kingsmouth tweets, neither about the big news that was supposed to happen this week. If someone has info about it, a link'd be appreciated.
