In an article published on Eurogamer today, EVE Online devs CCP have compared their game to religion.
“”We thought, in the eighties and nineties, that virtual reality would be lasers drawing pictures into your eyes, or like The Lawnmower Man. But we have virtual reality; we have realities which are shared,” said creative director Torfi Frans Olafsson.
“There are religious sects which have lower numbers than EVE Online. They can’t touch their world any more than an EVE player can, but they believe it. Reality has become virtual.”
