MegaCorp is a VR game playing in the future, where the society is ruled by powerful corporations. The Player has to infiltrate a AI controlled facility to save the mankind from medical enslavement. After the mega corporation ‘Entity’ has announced their new world changing medical product, a remote controllable nanite based serum, the player is send by the other pharma and health insurance corporations, which fear for their loss in power though this technology, to infiltrate and destroy the laboratory in order to stop the release.

MegaCorp covers interesting real world political conflicts about the power of corporations in the medical sector and the need of people of available and affordable healthcare systems. Especially because most big pharmacy company are acting on global level today, they have a lot of influence against governments of different countries, and the people living in there. Even today are cased uncovers, where those company take advantage of the populations of poor countries. But the political conflicts don’t end there, our technology advances so fast, that we reach every year new situations where we have to make legal and ethical considerations. One good example is the FDA aprovement for a sensor pill which digitally tracks if a patient has taken their medication. The public media reported about that with their worries about a biomedical ‘Big Brother’.
