    After some debate, we found that our early new company name was too limitative and not enough inspiring...

    So we are please to announce Alice and Smith as the new company name. Nathalie Lacoste will step down as President of Human Equation and will take the lead of Alice and Smith full time. With her initial funding, she manage to assure to full viability of the company (staff and offices) for the next two years. Therefore, all money raised for The Black Watchmen (or other Alice and Smith project) will be 100% invested in the project artwork, content and technology.

    This is a major opportunity as not many start-up can have the chance to remove the sales pressures in the early stage. It's also a great risk that she take and is a clear testimonial on how much she believe in the future of Alternate Reality Game and Trans-media production.

    Nathalie Lacoste was behind The Yellow Curtain as co-puppet master and worked also on The Secret World and Behaviour's Warhammer 40k ARG. Joining her in the company is Vanessa Gosselin Grenier as Executive Producer and Frederics Forgues, father of the situation room, as our techno-creative artist.

    Super cool. So should we no longer refer to our dev team as Human Equation (hE) on the forums but A&S? or is it a mix of both companies?

    Also, it's nice to know whose logo is now on the front of my phone! Haha

    Well then, I'd better change that section of the intro post.

    Great new name indeed!
    Seeing as that fateful day is approaching, what you just wrote in the OP would be gold for the kickstarter; seeing as it's a quite clear sign that the funding isn't for the administrative side of things, but purely for the sake of the game!

    And with the staff that follows into A&S, we (generalization folly!) who know you, know it's in the best hands a project like this could be in!

    And that black box is still intriguing me to no end; so inviting to find and sit in.

    *looks around for Admiral Ackbar*

    Great news! Offices still in the same location? You know, for 'planning' purposes.
    Also, the box. Handcuffs hanging from the bare bulb, hardened briefcase, the large machete/knife, the boots.... looks like something is afoot!
