Incidents[edit | edit source]

In March 2010, a couple in Suweon, South Korea were arrested for allegedly neglecting their three-month-old premature daughter, resulting in her death by starvation. South Korean police said the couple fed her once a day between twelve hour sessions at an Internet cafe at which they played Netmarble's Prius Online. According to police, the couple became obsessed with nurturing and caring for a virtual girl within the game named Anima while their daughter starved to death.[1]
