The end of The Matrix

posted by Jason Kottke   Jul 31, 2009

Usually MMO games that reach the end of their usefulness are ungracefully shut down. The Matrix Online has cleverly built the closing of the game into the narrative of the world.

Ashes to ashes, decompiling sky to deletion. The Matrix Online is reminding us all that it’s slowing coming undone as the system becomes more and more unstable with each passing day. Ashes raining from the sky, eyes being seen in the clouds, zombies, agents, angels, and demons all appearing out of the system’s corruption to wreak havoc across the Mega City.
