|“Prime Empire is not just a video game. It's a ticket to another world. A world so immersive you'll think it's real. Prime Empire isn't going to change how games are played, it's going to change the world as we—.”|

Relations with Reality
When a player surpasses level 13, they may enter Prime Empire. However, the consequences of exiting it are never acknowledged by any of the characters or by the story, therefore many of the things inside Prime Empire can also be brought to the One Trillion Realms, and vice versa.
Clothing and Avatars
The players of Prime Empire may keep their appearances and looks that they obtained inside the game. Sometimes, if characters edit their apparel, they can keep those changes in the real world. If a player buys an Avatar inside the game and then exits Prime Empire, they will lose the avatar, and keep their real clothes, or the ones they had before entering the game. Nonetheless, this is different for NPCs or the citizens that populated the game. They all kept their same clothes inside and outside the game.
Leftover Parts of the Game
The character who exits the game still possess some of their items or weapons that they had inside Prime Empire.
Powers and Abilities
Time and Age
In Prime Empire, time is not applicable or active, but the difference is that people inside the game do not age.
The arcade game was created by at an unknown point in time when Milton Dyer was in the Vast Industries. He and Bob, his intern, worked at the Dyer Mansion's game room, making the game more difficult for players to play when it releases. After Milton Dyer made unauthorized changes (creative differences) to the game, involving magic to trap gamers, the game was called out and was never released. His bosses weren't happy, so they fired Milton Dyer. When an incident occurred the eve of the game's release, Milton went into hiding at Buddy's Pizza (in which he called it "Videogame City") for 30 years.
