The nightmare game system

A game designed to shatter the minds of the people who play it.
A thief on a mission to save his sister.
An ambitious demon masquerading as an artificial intelligence.

When Ramzan steals from the Chechnyan Mafia to create a better life for his sister, he knows he’s pissing off the wrong people. They want their money, and they’ve created a diabolical method of extracting information from their enemies. Full Immersion Virtual Reality sounds great, until he learns the horrors this incredible technology can cook up.

Now, he must keep his wits up and his sanity points high as he battles hordes of fearsome abominations on his quest to escape. Zombies, lycanthropes, slime monsters and more stand in his way, controlled by a devious programmer that doesn’t play fair.

Can Ramzan protect his secrets and maintain his sanity against this psychological onslaught? Will he succumb to the terror, and become the monster he set out destroy? He’s gotta stay sharp, and he’s gotta stay sane, if he has a hope of escaping…

Sample text:

Chapter Two
Character Mutilation


Ramzan held his breath and waited with resigned dread. He felt like he was strapped in the electric chair, waiting for the switch to be flipped. Any second now and 2,200 volts would pass through his body.

“What a delicious thought,” came a voice from the darkness. It was almost male, but slightly effeminate, flavored by an American accent. Not Russian, that was good. Americans were weak and full of sympathy.

“Yes, that is a wonderful idea. Let’s do that!” He swore he heard muffled, as if the person expressing the sentiment was wearing gloves.

Ramzan’s body was racked with a jolt of electricity that fired through every nerve. His jaw clenched so forcefully that he bit through his tongue. He wanted to scream, but he couldn’t open his mouth. Pain crashed over him like a tidal wave of burning oil.

Through it all came a gender-neutral voice.

The damage from the electricity and bleeding continued for an eternity, until the voice stopped detailing the damage he was taking, and said:


You have 3 out of 2,000 Health Points remaining.
