Are you living the dream?
In the year 2020 Dreams0ft released their hit game DreamB!t on Cortex device. Under virtual augmented reality, players engaged in combat E-sport and relaxed in idyllic gamescapes. Media attributed its sensation through “sci-fi punk in neon rave culture”. Cortex devices were easy to use: just wear one on your head and find a nice play to lay.
DreamB!t stood out among competitors by touting as sleep therapy. On “Lullaby Mode”, it restricted players to a chosen play duration before sending sleep waves via Cortex. The game world served as a platform for destress to prepare for sleep. This function became popular with young people who wanted controlled relaxation.
“The DreamB!t project is not just an entrepreneurial venture. We tailor everything from design and ergonomics to the modern lifestyle and youth scene. Video games are therapy!”

But are you ever truly awake regardless? With advertisements telling who you are, the lies on your social media telling who you are, and society interested in your role as a cog..maybe there’s no difference.
Not even when a crazed hack prevent you from logging out, forced you to murder other players to get out or live in the game forever, deciding when you’re asleep and awake.
