Finshed: Twin Towers issue
« on: 19 Jan 2019, 07:50 »
Hi

I am in production of a conspiracy / myth game (Maelstrom Obscura)..

One of the subjects is the Twin Towers.

Do you think that it could be to soon or offensive and a sensitive issue?

Cheers

I say yes to all three, Slasher. After almost 20 years is still part of our collettive memory and probably won't fade for a lot of time.

Plus, there are already tons of conspiracy theories about this issue. Hard to be original.

I mean there's literally a conspiracy theory that the twin towers were evaporated with a giant invisible laser that won't ever be replicated ever and was dismantled and hidden for some reason.

I'm not sure you can do a conspiracy theory with it that hasn't already been done. Best to avoid it, and stick to fictional events.

I was thinking along the lines of the unaccounted trillions of dollars that could not be accounted for..

I don't think it's too soon.
