The Game is the scene of the crime!
One of the strongest guilds in a fictive MMORPG is embarking on the last expansion’s final raid to become the highest ranking guild in game. The event is so tremendous that even the MMO’s lead developers at Gizzard are watching the raid on live-stream. Things start to slowly fall apart when the guild’s outcast “Cookie” makes his return sporting an illegal race and bringing power-grinded companions. Friendships are put to the test, internships are on the line, and the gamers are forced to take action in the “real world”.
The characters within the game are unusual and memorable. They develop during the game, and reveal sometimes surprising sides. The story touches not only on the players in the MMO, but also on the developers making the MMO and the lives of the people who play the characters in the game. It is filled with off-color humor and puns about taboo subjects as well as pokes at the games industry itself. The lines between real life and game are at times unclear, and parallels are easily drawn between the two.
