Location: Pine Barrens, NJ
The Conspiracy: Pine Barrens is a ghost town in NJ. But what makes it so interesting is there is only one building- that would be Ong’s Hat. It is said that the town was bustling in the 1860s. Though it is unknown if there were ever any additional structures. Regardless the town has been documented on maps for years. The conspiracy is that some believe professors at Princeton University used the town to conduct quantum physics experiments. And legend says that they even made a man disappear for 7 minutes and he claims he went to another dimension into another version of Earth.
Seriously, I know nothing about game development, but really believe that that “legend” would make for a truly creepy playable game!

Has the oppressive August heat had you pining for the woods? Well, If you take the New Jersey Turnpike to exit four and follow Route 70 east, you will reach Route 72 at Four Mile Circle. If you take the sharp left from the circle you’ll find Ong’s Hat Road and a desolate, murky trail that may lead to Ong’s Hat, an abandoned place with an interdimensional portal hidden deep in the Pine Barrens.
The legend of Ong’s Hat includes tales of arcane texts, jilted lovers, lively watering holes, mad physicists, interdimensional travel, and a gateway to other dimensions.
