Don't worry, it's not dangerous, and the site is very transparent about it. From the bottom of the article;

Quoting: MisterPaytwickBeing the work of Master Boot Record, it's far more on point with several aspects (digital versus physical support theme for example is brushed on, with the Magnetic Police), and overall a love letter to the cyberpunk genre without just going chrome: graffiti became virtual, a band actually playing on set is something, a secret message on a floppy and so on.
I immidiately wanted to write about MBR :D The game is not in my taste, but their music is... you know how good it is :) I rarely play point and click adventure games, but I love cyberpunk setting, and MBR, so... maybe it will be a good opportunity to shake hands with this genre? Last time I played point and click was... Syberia? I think so :P

This is a graphically impressive and remarkably lengthy adventure game, which sadly suffers from poor writing, bland characters, and a very repetitive soundtrack. I guess i can't complain since it was free, but I was disappointed when halfway along the plot, the game just throws cyberpunk out of the window and becomes something closer to Star Wars. You can also tell it was made by Scandinavians, because the characters won't shut up about the demoscene and how influential it was for computing in their own view.

It may be, it kind of lack a bit of what made for example Full Throttle such an easy to get into point and click (except that wall puzzle, fuck that wall puzzle), which include it's not overstaying it's welcome. Now I think VirtuaVerse does work just well enough to feel too long, but at the same time it has puzzles that may come off hard for newcomers (IMO, we more experienced players simply have accepted to get pointers at specific times, or have know far worst suffering and we don't care anymore...). Now there is a story mode, and it should help alleviate some issues.

Which is funny because MBR is Italian. But, it is what it is : what can you do about being Scandinavian?
