The Gam3 by Ephemerality


The Earth is changing. The alien invasion brought social upheaval, advanced technology, and an armada of peacekeeping robots. But Alan, a college student pursuing a now-useless degree, cares little about all of this. He has only one thing on his mind: the Game.

A fully immersive virtual reality, the Game appears to be a major part of the invading civilization. Alan can’t wait to play, recklessly diving into the digital universe. Soon though, Alan realizes the Game is anything but simple, and the stakes are higher than he ever imagined.

Note: The Gam3 contains some graphic violence and harsh language.

A serialized novel, updating weekly

The Gam3 short review.

By VonRidel, member

Aug 6, 2016: LitRPG science fiction. This is a well done Web serial about Alan, a human who is playing The Game, which is an intintergalactic game between multiple races. Earth is new to the game and has a very small Window to become proficient in the game before other races can start attacking earth. Whoever controls earth in the game, controls earth in real life.

Pretty damn good scifi/vr

By Blaise Corvin, member

Jul 20, 2016: I really enjoyed this story. I’m not sure what the first book is like online since I bought the Kindle version, but I enjoyed it from beginning to end.

The MC is believable and his motivations are relatable. He’s consistent and the world building is consistent.

I’m a big fan of litRPG. I even write one. I’m always on the lookout for new litRPG stories to read and The Gam3 delivers.
