The group of people who created the website is called “The Welcome Home Restoration Project”.

Their collaborative efforts aim to revive the memory of this lost media.

They strive to create a friendly and welcoming community similar to the charming and colorful neighbors in their beloved Home.

The website skyrocketed in popularity after YouTubers like LoeyLane, Inside A Mind, and Night Mind made videos about it.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to play Welcome Home ARG, a project based on a children’s television show with a horror aspect to it.

There are 6 main pages—Welcome Home, The Neighborhood, About Us, News, Guestbook, and Links.

You can click on the various houses to see who lives in them.

For example, the house in the middle of the neighborhood belongs to Wally, the main character of the show.

The overlapped text on the page says, “When I unwrapped the first letter, I felt it. I heard it. Open. Open. Open. I want it out. I’m going to get it out”.
