The Apocalypse Games is a state of the art virtual game designed to entertain doomsday preppers, gamers, and cosplayers. But not everyone is here to play the game the way the creators intended. Some players don't belong at all and some are there just to escape reality. Whatever the reason, over 100 people enter simulation pods and hook up to the computer with one goal: survive 24 hours of an apocalypse. Instead of game over at the end, they’re plugged straight into a new game. Then another. It’s clear the computer has malfunctioned. What's not clear is why.
Welcome to the Apocalypse - (CyberNexis # 2) by D.L. Richardson
The Apocalypse Games was meant to be fun, but the computer malfunctioned and trapped over 100 players inside their simulation pods. Now they're out, but they're hundreds of miles away from the building where the game was played. Getting out of the virtual game used to be all that mattered. But with the world dramatically changed, now all that matters is getting back in. Outside, the cities are on lockdown, transport is limited, communication is gone, and evacuation to the safe zones is fraught with danger due to a primitive-like species attacking populated areas. All the signs for these attacks are pointing to CyberNexis, the creator of The Apocalypse Games. They're hiding something out in the desert. The trick is to make it there alive. If they thought the game was tough to survive, outside is worse, because it's real. There's no Game Over.
