We are Gichi Gami Games. Gichi Gami Games are an Alternate Reality Game Studio and GichiGamiGames.com is an Alternate Reality Game Website.
We are a game development studio but we do not make traditional 'video games'. Our games are unusual as they most likely are either text-based or they are what is called an ARG - an alternate reality game. In some cases our games require you to read.
