    have you ever felt that perhaps we are in a gaming world established by some select few which has metaphysical powers and can travel time which makes them relatively immortal?
    think of the abrahamic religions? they sound like they are from the same god and mention the same prophets, has similar issiues.

    Perhaps they are working on a world which is created by the actual god and given to them.
    Sounds rather paranoid I know but I cant help thinking about this option recently after watching a tv programme.

    No, no, I can't say that I have ever for a moment thought that. Paranoid isn't the word I'd use to describe such an idea. Bizarre comes to mind, though. >_>;

    Sounds like scifi, heavy on the -fi.

    As being on the cutting edge of the gaming world, no sir, I do not.


    Welcome to life, it is not always pretty, and it can be confusing, buckle up, it can get rough.

    Pretty badly designed game, if you ask me. The designer also has a strange notion of narrative structure and engagement.

    There's a reason why Desert Bus is regarded as among the WORST games of all time.

    It's a sci fi idea but it's not all that different from the broadly believed concept of Maya, that the world is an illusion, a dream.

    At least the graphics are halfway decent, but immersion and game play could be better.
    Where are all my epics???
