It could be a MUDD[1] where you're set to follow as part of a mob. It
could be an IDLE RPG[2]

The game could be paused but might terminate your session if it
doesn't remain connected.

A game which causes you to go back to a respawn point on start can be
very frustrating if you're just flipping away for a bit.
