About This Project


Rich Crum

A conspiracy theory is a belief that some covert but influential organization is responsible for a circumstance or event. Whenever someone thinks of conspiracy theory the first thing that comes to mind is the US government’s Area 51. Area 51 is the biggest conspiracy theory out there; over 45% of the United States population believes in it according to the Huffington Post. My video game reflects on this idea. You play as a character that does not believe in conspiracy theories. Once inside you find out things are not as logical as you thought and it becomes a matter of escaping and surviving.

Like many other college students, I grew up playing video games. I loved getting lost in an enormous foreign landscape. After years of playing games I became interested in the development of video games and decided to create a game.

I created Area 51 to be played as an entertaining video game that reflects on today’s society. It is not a bad thing that we doubt and question the unknown such as Area 51. I am not doubting the existence of aliens and Area 51, I am simply reflecting on how some conspiracy theories get so big that they basically become fact.
