While I suppose there's only so much you can do with the concept of "You're in a simulated reality, not unlike our reality, fighting for the survival of humanity," I can't help but notice how much This Is Not Happening bears a striking resemblance to a certain recent movie franchise.

Elements like the Focus powers (example: Running on Walls) and the Guardian Program seem directly lifted. Anyone know if there was an intended partnership that simply didn't happen?

No I think it was just a small company trying to do things on the cheap. Still, it's worth the cash for the Psycho Clown disk alone!!!

It's not like The Matrix is the only story line ever to feature cybernetic alternate realities...

...And now I have to buy it.

It sounds like this expansion would help to integrate superhero type characters to the game. Would those who have played agree?
