ARG- alternative reality game - shows where you can change the plot real time and it uses real life as a platform like: pixza time pizza and the sunvanished
ARE - alternative reality experience -shows which use reality as a platform, but you cannot change the plot what so ever. Like: Marble hornets and Everyman hybrid.

Does anyone remember Torment? Used to be really big back on old /x/ (as well as other assorted forums) because some fucktard decided to hack the creator's email account.

I was just always drawn to it, driven mainly by curiosity. Area I grew up in had quire a few urban legends about ruins, hills, ponds, and rivers located nearby. 
Then when I entered early teens things like the X files, Blair Witch, and so on were popular. Around the same time my country had a somewhat popular show focusing on paranormal and other odd phenomena or mysteries. Music related. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pg7BLyZx_3c

Basically, everyone who grew up around that time (late 90s - early 00s) had at least a passing interest in paranormal and mysterious happenings. I was just curious enough to get more invested into it all.

Blair Witch 2 has been given two fan cuts that improve it greatly, one I can't find and the other is on Bitchute and doesn't load for me.
Torment was an ARG/crypto game that was launched way back in 2007, I know that much.
There was nothing inherently special to it - you had a website where each page was a puzzle with a specific answer. Entering the right answer led you to the next page/puzzle, etc. Entering a wrong one would either lead you back to the main page or, worse, to a "red herring" - which looked like another puzzle, but had no proper answer.

The actual natures of the puzzles varied, but I faintly recall one was a classical instance of cryptography/codebreaking, another was based on a picture crawling with insects with some vague comments on their shells, and a third required intimate knowledge of Shakespeare.

It was pretty popular on 4chan's /x/ back in the day and also had groups trying to solve it in various forums (fairly sure there was at least one dedicated website or at least online forum). Then one of the players went apeshit and hacked the email account of the creator Grngecko. The latter thoroughly flipped his shit and took the entire thing offline.

He later started a second, similar project called "Tormentum" in 2010, but that one fizzled out, too.

I actually found an old thread 
As well as a YT vid, even if that's in Spanish.

Is there any remains? I mean that if there isn't a site that hosts or has the game for download or whatever? Because this sounds intresting.

Another thread from the forum I linked mentions some sites still can be called up via the Wayback Machine, but most are missing the images.
I don't think Torment has never been rehosted anywhere. It's pretty much gone.
