Trivia

The game bears many similarities to Red Dwarf: Better Than Life (1988), although it is never identified by this title. The idea of participants spending years immersed in the game, cared for by attendants, is also featured in the novels with respect to Better Than Life, and is also revisited in a deleted scene from Red Dwarf: Duct Soup (1997) when Kochanski mentions spending most of her teen years hooked up to a similar system during her schooling.
