Virtual I : Hologram
What is the difference between reality and virtual reality?
In the year 2046, Virtual is the Reality. It started as a game.
A game where we could be anyone, do anything. It was a fantasy world filled with wonders long forgotten, like Wonderland but just a lot better.
But a single glitch changed everything. Suddenly, Virtual was cut out of Reality. We, the players, were stuck inside. We were warned not to log out by force or risk certain death. At least until the program is fixed...whenever that will be.
We had to create our own Reality. Schools, homes, anything anyone could ever need. And soon, Virtual became our life. Our Reality.
But our story doesn't just end here. No, that'd be boring. Our story - my story - is just beginning.
Because behind the scenes of Virtual, underneath all the beautiful lies we were told, there hides a sinister organization called the Empire, protectors of a deadly secret.
The Empire created Virtual. They were the Creators of this world. They can't be trusted.
Sounds complicated, right? How can you trust anyone when you can't trust the Creators of the world you are living in? The answer? You don't.
This is not some fairytale with a guaranteed happy ever after. This is life. This is Virtual. This is our Reality.
Here, nothing is impossible. It's not going to be all 'Faith, Hope and Pixie Dust'. No, because if you die here, you die in Reality.
Welcome to Virtual. Hope you have a pleasant stay.
Oh, and do try to survive.
