I noticed that in the bottom left corner of the soma website (http://nextfrictionalgame.com/) there are five Chinese characters. My wife is Chinese, so I asked her what they meant.
She read them and started laughing. I asked her what was going on, and I guess they're an old and pretty well known Chinese adage that roughly translates into "The sky is very high and the king is far away".
In context, people in China would say that in regards to committing illegal activities. China was/is huge, and there is a ton of trouble you could get yourself into, and since the Emporor was only one man and so far away, his gaze would only reach so far and could only concentrate on a small number of issues at once, meaning that there was often no repercussions for your wrongdoings.
So, basically, it means "Do anything you want because the law can't touch us"
...which is super creepy, when this game appears to take place on a space station or space ship of some kind, assuredly beyond the grasp of whatever government or ruling body makes the laws on Earth. I get a very Dead Space/System Shock/Event Horizon/Alien series feeling from this.
