As the world descends into chaos, she begins to unravel the secrets of the people who created the technology, including one which promises to destroy them all.

Jessie’s Game (Book 2): Dead Reckoning is a 127,000 word novel from the world of GAMELAND. It follows Season One.

For ages 16 and older.

What is S.W. Tanpepper’s GAMELAND

The highly-rated epic cyberpunk series was first released in monthly episodes between May and December 2012. It follows the exploits of six young adults as they break into the Long Island arcade hoping for a rare glimpse of the undead survivors of a decades’ old outbreak. But while breaking in was easy, getting back out is a killer.

6 Hackers, 1 Game... 10,000 Undead.
Everyone loves Survivalist, a live-action, virtual reality show based on Arc Entertainment's The Game, where cybernetically controlled zombies do battle in a video arcade in the middle of a Long Island wasteland. It's to die for.
If you're rich enough, you can buy your way in. If you're desperate enough, you can volunteer to become one of the Undead Players. Jessie Daniels and her gang of computer hackers plan to break their way in.
