Speculative science fiction at its finest, MetaGame by Sam Landstrom is a ?future gamers? field guide and a philosophical cyberpunk adventure. In this original and disturbingly irreverent prospective world, gaming is more than a diversion ? and gamers are, literally, in it for life. The OverSoul, an enigmatic, unifying force, offers winners points that add up to currency. Reigning champs are given the gift of immortality ? while losers are condemned to aging and death. D_Light is one of the best players in his Family and will do anything to win, even if it means committing murder. When he''s invited to a MetaGame ? an exclusive, high-stakes competition ? he jumps at the chance. But after the first quest, D_Light''s overly ambitious ways brand him a renegade. With a warped sense of freewill that is needed to prevail, D_Light must either kill someone he''s grown to love ? or lose everything.
From the Publisher:
In sci-fi author Sam Landstrom?s MetaGame, he creates a believable but disturbing world with fewer than six degrees of separation. In fact, every single person, product, pastime, and proclivity humans take part in is interconnected. Life is the Game ? and winners never die. In the Game, points amount to currency and top scorers are eligible for immortality. A mysterious, unifying force, the OverSoul, calls the shots, and an individual player?s health contract can be indefinitely extended ? and with the offer of a permanent twenty-year-old?s body and health, it?s with fanaticism that gamers play the Game. D_Light is one of the best players in his family and will do anything to win, even kill. When he?s invited to a MetaGame ? an exclusive, high-stakes competition ? he jumps at the chance. But after the first quest, D_Light?s overly ambitious ways brand him a renegade. With a warped sense of free will that is needed to prevail, D_Light must either kill someone he?s grown to love ? or lose everything.
