BEST GAME EVER is a queer science fiction novel of virtual reality games and augmented reality in which college students must battle an AI game engine to save themselves and the gaming world. Here’s the teaser:
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 he is distracted by a gender-fluid friend.
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?
