The fourth and final scene of Deserted is somewhat embroiled in controversy. On first appearance, the scenery seems to be a fourth American desert location. However, as the interaction within the scene is explored it becomes clear that the landscape is in fact the lunar landscape of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
Upon closer inspection, one will discover a number of anomalous artifices that leads one to question the depicted scene. Playing upon the moon landing conspiracy theory of whether NASA really did land on the moon, a number of key ‘pieces of evidence ‘ from the conspiracy theorists can be uncovered within the otherwise hyper-realistic scene.
