“Storm Area 51” video game released
The video game is based on a planned raid of the supposed UFO compound scheduled for September
It started as a joke on Facebook, but ultimately gained a serious following. A Facebook user suggested, somewhat offhandedly, that people should get together and try to take over Area 51 to try and uncover any secrets about UFOs or aliens the government may be trying to hide. The event was scheduled for this September and, despite not being a serious suggestion, has already received 1.3 million respondents saying they would participate. For those that would like to participate but can’t out of fear of repercussions or geographic restrictions, there is now an alternative – the Storm Area 51 video game.
The game is reportedly being developed by vlogger Keemster, who posted about it on Twitter. His post included a screenshot of the game, which looks surprisingly realistic. Keemster also is looking for audio input for the game, saying in a video, “Respond to this tweet with a Twitter video of you saying ‘Let’s see them aliens’ or ‘Aarghhh’ or ‘Get ’em’ or ‘Stop’ or ‘Let’s go, USA, USA!’ Or make up your own audio, it doesn’t matter. Respond to this tweet with your voice acting and what it would be like if you really were to imaginarily [sic] in this game, storm Area 51. And if we use your audio from your video, you will receive a free copy of the Storm Area 51 game, coming out very soon.”
The “Storm Area 51” event is supposedly scheduled for September 20, if it actually happens. Since the military base is an active training facility, anyone who thinks taking part in the excursion is a good idea should probably reconsider. There’s nothing stopping the Air Force from running munitions testing that day. Or, the individuals could simply be shot, just like the man who illegally entered the base this past January. Security personnel opened fire, killing him on site.
