Description (in English): 

Speculation is an alternate reality game that explores the culture of Wall Street investment banks in the context of the 2008 global economic crisis. From cryptographic puzzles and online simulations to live performances and geocaching, Speculation incorporates a wide range of media to build a transmedia world in which the logic of capital has accelerated beyond control. In the process of discovering, decoding, reconfiguring, and remixing Speculation, thousands of players transformed the game into a collaborative platform for speculating on the future of finance capital.
