Jesse Piñero plays video games for a living.

But as cool of a job as that may sound, it barely makes ends meet. So when a state of the art, virtual-reality game that is way beyond his price range emerges onto the scene, he turns to... questionable means to pay for it. Unfortunately for Jesse, those questionable means demand that if he wants the game he must play it not as a man, but as an adorable, little girl! And to make matters worse, once he gets in the game, he can't get back out!

From that point on, it's all downhill for the poor girl-who's-not-actually-a-girl. Bloodthirsty player-killers, obnoxious role-players, eerily clever A.I.s – whatever this crazy virtual world can throw at him it does so in full force. Friends quickly become enemies, enemies quickly become friends, conspiracies and plots are everywhere, and absolutely nothing seems to go quite right.

Joshing you 62 ,

A really great show!

This is a great show and I binge all the episodes they had in a day. I couldn’t stop listening. The show is really well done, great editing, with fantastic voice acting, characters, and great and interesting story. The pacing is great and I love the balance of drama with moments of humor. The main character is great, flaws and all. I’m really enjoying this podcast and I can’t wait to her more! I hope this goes on for a long time (or that I get to hear more from the creator with other projects). Keep up the great work!
