The Wikipedia article of the day for October 31, 2016 is Drowned God.
Drowned God is a science fiction adventure game developed by Epic Multimedia Group, published by Inscape and released on October 31, 1996. The game advances the conspiracy theory that all of accepted human history is false and the human race's development and evolution have been aided by extra-terrestrials. The player attempts to uncover the truth within the game by traveling to different worlds, interacting with historical and fictional characters, and solving puzzles. The game is based on a forged manuscript written by Harry Horse in 1983. After facing legal trouble and fines when he attempted to sell the text, Horse shelved it for more than a decade before deciding a first person adventure game would be the best way to tell its story. Producer Algy Williams hired a team of multimedia artists and programmers to help Horse develop the game. Upon its release, it sold well, but faded in popularity due to software bugs. Its concept and visuals were widely praised, but its gameplay, audio, and puzzles received a mixed reception. A planned sequel never came to fruition.
