VR games. The new frontier in human endeavor. Samsara, the most elegant and beautiful artificial universe created. Yet for him, the real universe is infinitely elegant and beautiful than what we can dream of. A personal tragedy, a growing rift between him and his beloved. He could have lived with it till she leaves him for some 'gamer'. Gamer ! that ridiculous epithet, bandied about as some sort of achievement! In anger, he decides to take up gaming, to beat his rival and prove to her that the game is nothing but that, a stupid, silly game!
He chooses the hardest race to play, more to prove his own superiority over the game than anything else. What he finds waiting for him is no game but an experience akin to rebirth into a new life. He plays as an Asura, growing powerful with no regard to the consequence of his actions. Little does he know that his most powerful opponent is not the one he initially thought. As time passes, the lines between him and his character blur. Who is the reflection? Who is real?
Look into the Asura's Mirror. What do you see?
