The Broken Word




An extremely original, off-beat love-story about a computer game that doesn’t exist.

Our narrator's life is slowly coming apart at the seams. The Pizza job looks shaky, the best friend Brainiac is getting depressed and the live-in girlfriend is increasingly restless. Somehow, when he most needs to focus, his attentions are elsewhere. He's writing an online guide to a computer game called The Broken World is an engrossing, possibly addictive, adventure that takes him from town to town in a struggle with zombies, agents, puzzles, robots and mysteries.
