The God Game
A NoveleBook - 2020
"Smart, propulsive and gripping, THE GOD GAME. You are invited! Come inside and play with G.O.D. Bring your friends! It's fun! But remember the rules. Win and ALL YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE. Lose, you die! Worship me. Obey me. Complete a mission, however cruel, or the game reveals their secrets and crushes their dreams. Tasks that seemed harmless at first take on deadly consequences. Mysterious packages show up at their homes. Shadowy figures start following them, appearing around corners, attacking them in parking garages. Who else is playing this game, and how far will they go to win? And what of the game's first promise: win, win big, lose, you die? Dying in a virtual world doesn't really mean death in real life, does it? As Charlie and his friends try to find a way out of the game, they realize they've been manipulated into a bigger web they can't escape: an AI that learned its cruelty from watching us. God is always watching, and He says when the game is done.
