Some of you know that I have friends that also write serials. I have a habit of mentioning them here in the interest of bringing you guys new material to read that may be up your alley.
So, on that note, my friend Maddirose, who wrote Twisted Cogs, and now goes by Inky Llama due to their diversifying into art/drawings and the like, also has a new project that is a little different.
You have all seen my love for the LitRPG genre, and this is in that vein but not quite. Its called Beta Key.
Here is the blurb.
Eight years, five months, three days, two hours, one minute and one second ago, an event occurred that changed the world as we know it. In the blink of an eye the screen of reality glitched, and the humans saw the lines of code that ran the world, saw the stats and numbers and tags that had been hidden from them for so long.
For the first time, mankind could access their character sheets, they could see their experience and life bars, and they realized how discrete the rules of reality really were. They realized they could game it, that it was a game.
The humans called it “The Phenomenon.” The glyches called it an opportunity. The world core called it her birthday. But for Keegan Wright, a nobody in his dead-end job, it was just another way to measure how much of a loser he really was. He had no clue that his world was about to change, just as drastically as the world around him had.
