As we see in the real world, with increasing numbers of conspiracy theories, 2012 doomsday myths and more. What if the reason behind the world's collapse was not the conspiracies, aliens from outer space or the planet Nibiru crashing into us - but rather our fear of these things happening. I.e. that these fears shackle us to our individual stati quo and prevents us from rising above our base surival instincts?

What are your thoughts about Matrix-like esoterics? Is it suitable for game development or can it risk passing the players by, if not handed to them? I mean, I've discussed the Matrix movies with some people who needed to see the third movie to understand that Neo was actually never in the "real world", even though it's hinted in both the first (barely) and especially the second movie (blatantly).

So I'm in the making of a post-apocalyptic game, but I'm trying to find a great story behind the apocalypse that isn't just the average "viral plague" or "nuclear war". Then suddenly, as I moderated my somewhat defensive reply in another thread, I actually gave myself an awesome idea!

What if the reason behind the world's collapse was not the conspiracies, aliens from outer space or the planet Nibiru crashing into us - but rather our fear of these things happening "any time soon". I.e. that these fears shackle us to our individual stati quo and prevents us from rising above our base surival instincts?

I think the idea is ingenius. Kinda like The Village, except that it's global (or is it?!! *dramatic music*). Plz boost my ego by agreeing *whimper* Posted Image

On a more serious note, what are your thoughts about Matrix-like esoterics? Is it suitable for game development or can it risk passing the players by, if not handed to them?
