The Twilight of the New Gods refers to the period between December 25, 2005 and December 24, 2007 when the Internet was closed to all non-crucial traffic by the WNC. The ban on traffic was created as a result of the Pluto's Kiss virus. During this period ALTIMIT OS was turned into the dominant world wide operating system by the WNC. It also marks the period that Harald Hoerwick did his programming for the game Fragment which would later be released as The World when the ban was lifted during the first Virgin's Kiss holiday.
The "New Gods" referred to in the title is a reference to technology.
