The Great MacGuffin
by Rachel Ford
A fully immersive virtual reality system. A beta testing opportunity that’s the stuff of dreams – or a nightmare that may never end.
Jack Owens has logged tens of thousands of hours on Marshfield Studio games. So he’s not surprised when the company hires him to be one of their first beta testers for the newly developed Dagger of Doom series.
Jack doesn’t think twice when the techs strap him into a VR apparatus and transfer his consciousness to the new world. He’s got a return switch. He can come back any time.
Except, he can’t. A bug in the software has trapped him. And the only way out is to finish the game.
Step one? Find the great MacGuffin. Step two? Get the h*ll out of here.
