I've always used video games to get me through the hard times, especially throughout my mother's terminal illness. Tasked as not only her caretaker but my little brother's as well, I long to give them a better life and save my mother's in the process. This is why, on the day of the Kingsman Online Regional Championships, my ranking in the horror shooter Dystopia is so important. But just when I think I have my ranked placement in the bag, a rolling blackout sweeps the city, leaving me not only devastated in the present but hopeless about the future.
However, it seems things are not completely lost.
When a strange man claiming to be from Kingsman Online arrives and offers me the chance of a lifetime, I can't refuse it.
The gaming company promises a completely immersive experience for their players in the regional championships.
Little do I know, I'm falling straight into a trap.
