Building DeviantArt's ARG
Before DeviantArt Eclipse would be revealed to the world (or even officially named!), the Marketing team was already contemplating how to publicize it. What could we do that was exciting, fun, and community-oriented...while not being able to reveal anything about what we were promoting?

The way to "Win" the ARG was to lock away all the Djinn that escape. To lock most of them away requires several steps: Figure out the unique "key" for the djinn, a six-character code Search for that key on DeviantArt Put the :Eclipse: emoji on that post Some varied from that, but here's basically the steps we went through: Any good ARG has to at least be interesting. So, we made an awesome character and brought in artist @Iamjustino to create a five-panel comic to kick things off. Through this, our goal was to introduce our heroes, Ari Banks and Bunny, along
