Overview

Fully revised and updated 2/11/13

SERIES DESCRIPTION:

In the center of Long Island's zombie wasteland, overseen by a megalithic corporation known as Arc Properties, is a virtual reality gaming arcade:

GAMELAND

It's here that the rich pit the Undead against each other in a high stakes game of violence, money and power, all for the entertainment of the masses.

On a whim, six young computer hackers decide to sneak onto the island, hopeful of catching a glimpse of the uncontrolled Infecteds, victims of the outbreak there a decade earlier. But while breaking into The Game is easier than any of them could have ever imagined, getting back out turns into one hell of a killer.

This book contains episodes 1 and 2 out of the 8 in the series.

EPISODE 1: Deep Into The Game
Jessie and her gang of game jackers discover a way to break into Gameland, but it requires the assistance of outsider Jake Espinosa. His inclusion raises tensions within the group, particularly between Jessie and her boyfriend, Kelly. After a nearly-fatal accident during preparation, emotions run dangerously high, but it only makes them all the more determined to succeed. What they don't know is that one of them has a secret reason for going, and it doesn't involve any of them returning any time soon.


EPISODE TWO: FailsafeJessie and Kelly clash after one of their group gets stranded among the Infected Undead, prompting Kelly to make a rash decision which will ultimately deliver the hackers into the hands of those who would turn them all into mindless players in The Game.

Combined length approximately 100,000 words.

    Ģдŧєş őf Фłŷm&rhoцş Part 4 ~§єЂ

    Comments at the next res. Character Aps at result 6.<p>
    Breakfast was pretty much ruined for me right then. I sat there for the next five minutes pushing my favorite egg omelet around on my plate. Even though l was upset about who l got paired with, l srill felt selfish for how l was acting. I mean look at Frank over there, he has a partner almost as bad as me getting Slash, and he seems to be holding up.<p>
    "Alright everyone! Breakfast is over! Get your weapons and head out to the Arena! It's time!" Jack called out. The way he said 'It's time!' Makes it seem like he's saying something he looked up to for his whole life.<p>
    I got up and walked out with Frank. Neither of us said anything. He went to grab his sword while l went to my cabin to think about every fighting technic l knew. I was going to need them all.<p>
    I heard a knock on the door. "Come in!" I yelled.<p>
    "I would rather not." The voice called. "You know... because of your traps. Oh its Kenny by the way."<p>
    I walked to the door and opened it, wondering what Kenny could possably want. "Hey why are you here?"<p>
    "I wanted to give you some advise from one of the few people who has actually beaten Slash." Kenny said.<p>
    "Uh.. no thanks. I got it on my own." I replied a little unsure about kenny helping me. "Thanks though kenneth."<p>
    "Call me Kenny. Anyways. He is all offence no defence. You should go all defence and some offence." Kenny said as if he hadn't heard me. "You know. Where him out a little."<p>
    "Yeah. I think l will get worn out faster though." I told him.<p>
    "Anyways. I got to go fight Lukas. So... see ya" he said a little akwardly.<p>
    I thought about what Kenny said the whole way to the arena. Maybe what he said is true. Flash is the most aggresive person at the camp. So maybe he does fight with more offence. I guess l will find out.<p>
    "Alright! Everyone is fighting at once! So l will be referee. Remeber, blades only! No killing! And please try not to injure someone beyond repair." Jack said.<p>
    "You ready to lose?" Slash sneered. "As you always have!" His buddies laughed like that was the funniest thing they ever heard.<p>
    "No. You ready to lose like you did against Kenny?" I spat back. Oh man that was a mistake. I couldn't hold it in though.<p>
    Flash's eyes slanted. I knew l hit a nerve with that. "He got lucky, pu<_>nk. You won't be so lucky." He said as he pulled his sword out.<p>
    His sword is scary enough. With its blood red Celestic Bronze blade with a black hand and a half grip with a ruby on the bottom, but with him holding it, it was pretty nerve wracking.<p>
    "Fighters get ready!" Jack called. I pulled my sword out.<p>
    Next to Slash's sword, mine looked as deadly as a toothpick. My sword was standard gold with a handgrip that was just black tape wrapped around. "And... FIGHT!"<p>
    More will be at the next result.
