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.

Quotes

Lister: I'm not Lister then? I'm not me, am I?
Kryten: None of us are who we thought we were, sir. This is going to take some getting used to.
Rimmer: I'm not Rimmer, then?
Kryten: No.
Rimmer: I'm not a hologram. I'm not Rimmer.
The Cat: Well, if we're not who we thought we were, who the hell are we?
Lister: Some kind of sad acts who want to spend four years playing a computer game. Either running away from God knows what, or had nothing worth living for in the first place.
