Anyone here who is following Telltale Games’ excellent new Sam and Max mini-series for PC will probably have downloaded the newest game/episode: Reality 2.0. If you haven’t, here’s the basic gist of what it’s about.
The newest episode consists of a new video game being invented that absorbs you into a virtual world where “Everything is superior to the real world”. The game also hypnotises the user into refusing to leave the game…no matter how terrible their experience within the game may be, it’s impossible to escape. Sound familiar?
I’m not necessarily saying they stole Red Dwarf’s idea, but it’s an interesting coincidence.
