    Peoples, the reason this reminds you of SAO is because SAO Is generic, and that’s coming from someone who liked it when they first saw it. That being said, if you want to watch SAO but interesting check out SAO Abridged by Something Witty Entertainment.

      “Sword Art Online” was not the first work of fiction to tell the “people trapped in a video game” story. Movies like “Tron” and animes like the “.hack” series told it long before SAO ever did. So if “Maker’s Game” is attempting to be something else, it wouldn’t be SAO, it would be “Tron” or “.hack.”

      Or, to put it even better, all of these shows and movies fall into the same genre – the “people trapped in a video game” genre. And when you’re telling that type of story, you’re always going to have similar starting points. You have to set up the video game world, show how our characters get stuck in that video game and the dilemmas’ they have to face with being stuck in the game, among many other things. So “Maker’s Game” is not attempting to be like SAO, “Tron” or any other story of that type. The only thing they all have in common is being in the same genre.

      Sam has said that, while “Maker’s Game” will start out similarly to SAO, they will take two very different paths very quickly. Honestly, I cannot wait for that to happen so people will stop unnecessarily comparing this comic to SAO. It was annoying on page one, and it’s still annoying now.

        Agreed. With all the SAO I finally decided to watch the anime. It was nice, but nothing ground breaking in the genre and the characters were rather flat and stereotypical and in line with most anime. Sam has done a much better job developing her characters in past stories and I’m sure we’ll soon be invested a lot in these ones too. Plenty of trapped in a computer stuff out there, but not much in developed TG and exploring what it means to inhabit an online avatar that is different than your own body.

        As I’ve said elsewhere there are too many people in this world who on finding something annoys people will go out of their way to keep doing it because “the reactions funny” (at least till they get smacked with a laptop) rather than stop.

        Ok but SAO is developp in the young society recently.
        And we have the same sequence that SAO (“Why logout bouton not active ?”, etc).

        Even the helmet reminds the universe. We can not say that there is no inspiration.
