Fictional newspaper article: the first clue of the series.

Nowheremen is a alternate reality game and web video series that is centered on the fictional disappearance of Derek Francis Border.[1] Players must solve interactive puzzles and treasure hunts across various mediums, including clues that are embedded within the video series.[2] As users discover more about Derek's disappearance, the story becomes commentary about modern U.S. security efforts, recruiting techniques and the nature of modern surveillance.

Started in September 2007,[3] clues were delivered to users approximately on a weekly basis. The series, however, did not premiere until January 22, 2008.

Though a title card for "X12 Productions" appears before the series trailer (released January 8, 2008), it is still unclear if there is a larger company or other interest behind the game.
