For all our efforts, modding is still a niche sort of thing. True, we’ve had the occasional commercial breakout like Counter-Strike and now Garry’s Mod, but by and large we don’t have much to do with the wider world. We don’t yet have any notable cultural significance, and nobody from outside the gaming community takes much of an interest in our work. Certainly, you’d never expect a globe-spanning conspiracy involving six different mod teams, NDAs, signed contracts, IP theft and Deus Ex designer Harvey Smith. From May to November 2005 a shady group of con artists ran an attempt to trick modders into developing a game for free. Mod DB investigates the twists and turns of The Atharon Conspiracy.
