The game had finally started, all the NPCS were now in full force as they ran their stands and shops. Most NPCs wouldn’t be too useful in terms of information; they would know only their job.

Delve Online was programmed as a game that you needed to learn concepts. It was programmed to be hyperactive realistic. All your senses synchronized up with the game.

Other games before it were on basic monitors with nice graphics, but the actual VR portion hadn’t been mass marketed. Most of the attempts for VR stopped during beta testing.
