Publisher: Brinestone Press
* * THIS BOOK CONTAINS EPISODES 3 and 4 * *
In the center of Long Island's zombie wasteland, overseen by a megalithic corporation known as Arc Properties, is a virtual reality gaming arcade:
It's here that the rich pit the Undead against each other in a high stakes game of violence, money and power, all for the entertainment of the masses.
On a whim, six young computer hackers decide to sneak onto the island, hopeful of catching a glimpse of the uncontrolled Infecteds, victims of the outbreak there a decade earlier. But while breaking into The Game is easier than any of them could have ever imagined, getting back out turns into one hell of a killer.
EPISODE 3: Deadman's Switch
Unable to escape from Long Island because of the failsafe device implanted inside their brains, the group digs in until they can devise a way to neutralize it. Jessie is anointed as their leader despite Jake's claims that she is unfit. A final desperate attempt is made to leave, setting into motion a sequence of events that will result in one of them dead, another infected, and all of them running for their lives.
EPISODE 4: Sunder the Hollow Ones
A mutiny in the group splits the members, leaving Jessie out in the cold. As she continues to struggle to fulfill her promise to bring everyone safely home, a chance encounter with one of Gameland's residents dredges up deeply buried memories, leaving her feeling haunted and doubtful about her future.
