Three short stories explore the video game as metaphor. The Naifs delves into the unsettling rituals of a sterile Virtual Reality world that veers dangerously away from its connection with nature. Don’t You Believe Me follows a time traveler who journeys through time battling a mysterious and devastating adversary. He eventually lands in an arcade where a video game is being played for the survival of humanity. Lastly, Hysterica is a story of rapacious consumerism and the dizzying sense of value it bestows upon us. These stories will have you thinking about video games—and life—in ways you never have before.
