Voltramax: Unlocking the Conspiracy's Mysterious Past

Is it possible that a canceled video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System is secretly responsible for some of the world's most notorious conspiracies? Could the very contents of this game be enough to take down the President of the United States of America? Somebody contact Alex Jones, because he's going to want to hear about Voltramax.

While everybody talks about the Bilderberg Group and the Illuminati, you rarely hear mention of Voltramax. Even now, a quarter century after Capcom secretly killed the 8-bit project, it is nearly impossible to find any concrete evidence proving that Voltramax exists. However, after countless cold calls and doors slammed in my face, I believe I have uncovered the mysterious origins of this oft-rumored project.

Based on documents leaked to Defunct Games, Voltramax was a 2D side-scrolling action game designed to introduce children to the wonders of what would later become the NSA spying program. But what started as an innocent case of brainwashing quickly turned into something nefarious when a dark investor got involved with the project.

"I've never seen anything like it," recounts a former developer who says he fears for his life every day. "They fired most of the staff that day and brought in their own guys, none of which had any prior experience making games. We stopped working on the game entirely and spent a lot of time talking about wrecking the world economy and creating a one world government."

The documents suggest that Voltramax could be responsible for much more than initially thought. It's possible that without Voltramax, there would have been no attack in Benghazi, Solyndra would have succeeded and Lindsay Lohan would still have a thriving career. While none of this has been definitively proven, the former employee was quick to offer up the proposed cover art and a word of warning: "Stay away from Voltramax before it's too late."

Before you write this off as just another conspiracy theory, I would like to draw your attention to this video from The Young Turks. There are also unconfirmed reports that Voltramax has caused havoc with the popular web show's live feed and lighting. One thing is clear: This conspiracy is larger than anybody could have imagined.

After Voltramax was canceled, Capcom used some of the assets to create another subversive game about the 1%, it was called Disney's DuckTales.
