In the world of massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), the science fiction game EVE Online developed and published by CCP Games, has a tiny footprint — not even a million players. For comparison, Runescape has over 200 million registered players. But in Iceland and EVE Online’s birthplace, the game is huge. So huge that there is a real-world monument in Reykjavik dedicated to the game with the names of all active players engraved on its surface.

The monument is five meters tall and includes a bizarre ensemble of three differently shaped obelisk standing on a wide platform, about half meter tall. Its surface is dense with thousands of names of every player active as of March 2014. The monument, the first of its kind, is located on Reykjavik’s harbor near the offices of CCP Games. It was designed by local artist Sigurður Guðmundsson, and was unveiled in 2014 as a celebration of the game’s 10-year anniversary.
