The Epsilon Program is a
fictional religious cult that is referred to in a number of Grand Theft
Auto games in the 3D Universe, and appear in the HD Universe,
prominently Grand Theft Auto V. Led by Cris Formage, the cult first
emerged as a teaser site for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and more
recently a twitter account for GTA V.
The cult is an obvious scam,
intended to gain money by brainwashing its followers into paying large
sums of money, parodying real-life cults in the late 20th century. In
Formage's own words, it is "a fellowship of like-minded adults who
tithe money in exchange for salvation and merit badges".
Epsilonism seems to be a
parody of Scientology, which is followed by Hollywood celebrities, and
is likely to be a central theme to Vinewood celebrities in GTA V.
