This is an in-depth article explaining the fictional religion in Dead Space.
i love this game and it managed to rub some muck off of EA's name for me
If you take a look at the otherwise fictional religious belief that is Unitology....isn't it rather striking the similarities it shares with Scientology. Now, I am no religious historian by any strech of the imagination but if you take a look at the very basis of the scientologist belief you will see that they both have an alarming kinship to Alien derivation. True, you could say that about all religious beliefs but I found it interesting none the less. This is by no means meant to offend anyone of the Scientology belief. But yes.....I hear the game is great and I still need to pick this one up, along with Afro Samurai.
I was impressed that they used the PS3 as the lead platform and that it looked and played damn well and we didn't get a gimped version like some other EA titles. You can read the unitology religion stuff from the extras in your log after you beat the game once. I think it's funny how its basically thinly veiled mimic of SCIENTOLOGY and all the whack jobs who pay for their rank.
