It is springtime at Bolin College and death is in the air. In this fast-paced virtual reality thriller, a group of gay, nonbinary, and straight college nerds on the Virtual Campus Challenge team are racing toward a mandatory system demonstration in order to remain in the international competition.

Virtuella, the SaikoVR AI game engine, fights back to eliminate the threat to her company. Can Robby and his friends defeat Virtuella, save the world, and find love in the BEST GAME EVER?
Praise for Best Game Ever
“The Best Game Ever is the science fiction Hogwarts, full of adventure and wonder, that you’ve always wanted—complete with cyber-tech instead of magic, virtual reality gaming instead of quidditch, and a diverse, queer cast of exciting characters.”– DON SAKERS, AUTHOR OF DANCE FOR THE IVORY MADONNA
“Angell has captured college life in all its horrifying, glorious complexity, set against a future that’s frighteningly possible.”– CAT RAMBO, AUTHOR OF BEASTS OF TABAT
It is springtime at Bolin College and death is in the air.
The Virtual Campus Challenge demo is one week away. To make matters worse, Robby hasn’t had a boyfriend since freshman year and his gender-fluid friend is making that all too clear.
When Robby and his team uncover a link between suicides and virtual reality games, Virtuella, SaikoVR’s AI game engine, fights back. Can Robby and his friends defeat Virtuella, save the world, and find love in the BEST GAME EVER?
