Added DiffLines:

-->''About a month ago, a free copy of this game was delivered to your doorstep. A small, independent gaming company produced an MMO along with their own accompanying virtual reality technology; they're local, apparently, and basically everyone in the city got the exact same bundle on their doorstep.''

-->''It hasn't even gone on sale, yet. It's 'still in beta', is what they're saying, and you've all essentially been given the chance to be the ones to test it. You don't think anyone outside the city has even '''heard''' of it, yet.''

-->''You're no idiot. You know it was a suspiciously awesome thing to happen to you.''

-->''But, hey, you've been playing it for a month, and so far...it's pretty fucking cool.''

In the PlayByPost version, you are '''Alexander Heron'''; a growing boy of 22 who, in-game, goes by '''Wingspan'''. You've been gaming with these people for the last month:
* '''Hellblazer''', your BadAss BloodKnight with a HairTriggerTemper.
* '''Gunmetal''', TheBigGuy who serves as the Tank for the group.
* '''Whiteflower''', a ShrinkingViolet who plays as a WhiteMage.
* '''Newts''', the group's BlackMage and BadassLongRobe.
* '''Knifebaby''', your resident rogue who DoesNotLikeMen.

Following the game, a [[VirtuallyReality2NewGamePlus sequel]] is currently in the works (located [[http://theonlythingtofear.b1.jcink.com/index.php?showtopic=2144&view=findpost&p=79208 here]]), featuring a new cast.

Please note that this contains '''trigger warnings''', listed in the spoiler tag: [[spoiler:Sexual assault, self-harm, infant mortality, gore.]]

!!Tropes displayed in ''Virtually Reality'' are:
----
* [[spoiler:AssholeVictim: '''Knifebaby.''']]
* BadAss: '''Hellblazer'''.
* BodyHorror
* BreakTheCutie: '''Whiteflower''' is probably hit hardest by this trope.
* ClusterFBomb: '''Hellblazer''' is very fond of this trope.
* [[spoiler:DownerEnding: Overlaps with PyrrhicVictory. The protagonists don't 'win', but neither do the antagonist(s).]]
* MeaningfulName: '''Heron''', going by '''Wingspan''' in-game. [[spoiler:A couple of other players chose their avatar names this way, as well.]]
** In the Mythos version, '''Whiteflower''''s becomes obvious, for those familiar with the modus operandi of The Smiling Man.
** The name of the game itself, 'The World Beyond the Doors', is the first clue what's really going on in the game.
* TheMostDangerousVideogame
* MoralEventHorizon: For '''Heron''', during the quest ''Wanderlust''.
* PyrrhicVictory: Pretty much every quest.
* {{GIRL}}: '''Wings''' plays using a female avatar. [[spoiler:You later find out that '''Newts''' is the reverse; a girl, playing a male online.]]
* WeirdnessCensor: On '''Whiteflower''', during ''Darling Valentine''. [[spoiler:Becomes GlamourFailure when she's forced to collect the last 'flower', and she starts seeing things for what they are; that each flower is a human heart.]]
* [[WhatTheHellHero What The Hell, Heron?]]
