In the beginning, a world was created within cyber space. A small group of humans created a utopia inspired by what their dying world used to be. They created continents, oceans and skies, tundra, vast deserts and lush meadows.
For lack of a better name, they called it the Digital World.
If it was a success, they would launch it onto the internet as a virtual game for children all over the world...
The Creators would create a program that would protect their digital utopia from viruses, a program with which they could interact. A member of the group, an avid gamer, suggested a digital creature, much like those from a tamagochi. So they worked through the days creating the creature, a Digital Monster or Digimon as they soon called it. The result was an egg, a digital egg much like that of a tamagochi. But within the egg would hatch a Digital Monster that would gradually gain experience and evolve into more powerful forms in order to protect the Digital World.
