The internet jumped to action this past weekend when supposed screenshots were leaked for an upcoming survival horror game titled No Escape. However, the leak was quickly deemed a hoax when it was revealed the terrifying, desolate landscape was simply Detroit, Michigan. Although many found it hard to believe the depressing images were actual photos, residents came forward to admit it was true.
Some theorize that the entire idea for No Escape was developed as an elaborate ruse to deflect the paralyzing fear that this is an actual city in the United States. Whether the game is a cover-up remains to be seen, but the pictures did provide a sense of awareness for the former industrial capital, as supporters came out in droves to raise funds for the fledgling city. - Mike Burdette
