As the axiom goes, art imitates life, and it is commonplace for developers to include remixed renditions of real-world events in their games. Franchises sometimes put unique spins on such incidents since sticking to the source material might not make for optimal storytelling, but the cultural importance of representing an event supersedes total accuracy. AAA games like Assassin’s Creed 3 have enjoyed great success with their depictions of historical happenings, and Red Dead Redemption 2 employed a more nuanced approach to achieve similar results. With several seemingly innocuous cutscenes and missions littered across the map, not many gamers know the lore behind some of the Rockstar brainchild’s features, and the Vetter’s Echo cabin is one of such places in the title with real history.
