The Animism ARG begins here with the University Campus Map. The map is a hub that points players to potential puzzles to solve, and reflects player progress as they unlock buildings and work towards bringing balance to the University.

Solving the puzzles the buildings point to will result with codes the player can enter to unlock the buildings. Unlocking a building will assert a Spirit’s full influence over the building, and will unlock an Avatar for the player to use that is associated with that deity.

Each building the player unlocks will reflect the color of its associated Spirit; Blue for Wetiko, Red for The Mother, & Yellow for The Trickster. There are three views of campus, each reflect one of the deities' unique perspectives.

There is a pyramid’s worth of Avatars that reflect a progression up to the Spirits themselves, three tribes comprised of seven Avatars each. The higher up the pyramid players reach, the more challenging the puzzles become.

The ultimate Avatar to attain is that of The Trickster, and true to form, there are two ways to attain him. Either solve all puzzles tied to the university buildings he influences, or unlock one of his siblings, Wetiko or The Mother, to unlock The Trickster’s hardest puzzle for his Avatar.
