Alongside his pocket change earned while working in a local pizzeria, Marinez earns around $60 a month with RuneScape enough to buy cornmeal to make arepas and rice for himself and his younger sister. But for Marinez working on the internet isn't just about the arepas. It's about escape. believes the medieval-themed online game can be boring.

In the midst of one the most severe economic slumps over the past 45 years, excluding a war, he and others in Venezuela are turning to playing video games as a way of surviving and potential migration. It's not just about sitting in front of a computer screen. It can mean movement. Hunting herbiboars in RuneScape could help finance the food we eat today as well as the future in Colombia or Chile the countries in which Marinez has family.

Over to the Caribbean Sea in Atlanta, about 2,000 miles from Marinez and the home of Bryan Mobley. As a child playing RuneScape frequently, he told me via phone. "It was enjoyable. It was a way to clearly skip doing homework, shit like that," he said.

Aged 26 now, Mobley is a different person to the game. "I do not consider it to be the same as a virtual reality," he told me. For him, it's an "number game simulator" something akin to virtual roulette. A greater amount of money in the game is an injection of dopamine.

Since Mobley began playing RuneScape during the 90s the black market has been bubbling beneath the computer game's economy. In the lands of Gielinor, players can trade items--mithril longswords, yak-hide armor, herbs harvested from herbiboars and gold, the in-game currency. Then, players began trading in-game gold in exchange for actual dollars, a process referred to as real-world trade. Jagex, the game's developer, prohibits these exchanges.

Initially, trades in real time took place informally. "You might buy some gold from a friend at high school." Jacob Reed, one of the most popular creators of YouTube videos on RuneScape who goes by the name of Crumb wrote in an email to me. Then, demand for gold outstripped supply and some players were full-time gold farmers, or even those who make in-game currency to sell for actual money.

Internet-based miners have always been a part of enormously multiplayer online games, or MMOs which include Ultima Online as well as World of Warcraft. They even toiled away in several text-based virtual realms, said Julian Dibbell, now a technology transactions lawyer who once wrote about virtual economies in his journalistic work.

In the past, a lot of these gold miners were mostly situated in China. Some hunkered down in makeshift factories, where they slaughtered virtual ogres as well as looted their bodies during 12-hour shifts. There were news reports about the Chinese government using prisoners to build gold farms.
