Playing computer games is a way of life for Steve R. R. Carpenter, a thirty-six-year-old virgin who still lives in the basement of his parents’ house. But he’s had it with all the lame multiplayer online role-playing fantasy games pumped out by gaming companies, so he decides to create one of his own. Needless to say, it’s an instant success and a moneymaker to fund his real dream: To use one billion dollars to create another game that would redefine the genre and put all its competitors out of their misery. It’s also a way to have revenge on the greedy corporate assholes who are responsible for the state the fantasy MMORPG industry is in today, which is a welcome side-effect for our protagonist.
The author of this book, Steve R. R. Carpenter, is a thirty-six-year-old virgin still living with his parents who spent most of his life playing computer games. That, along with the “R. R.” (which he added to the middle of his name because that’s how you can tell a literary genius), makes him uniquely qualified to write a book like this.
