The internet has grown into a fully immersive virtual world known as the Ambit. It's a chaotic conglomeration of parks where people can indulge in all kinds of games and fantasies – for a price.
Gilles stumbles upon some unused gold UNI cards, but when he uses them, he gets caught up in a blackmail scheme that sends him on a new career path.
Forced into tracking for Facia Corpse, Gilles breaks into an Ambit park to steal code from a demonic teddy bear.
Working on his own for the first time, Gilles sabotages the opening of a new Ambit park, bringing him more fame – and more dangerous enemies.
Gilles takes a job to bring a 'spectre' offline from the Second Ambit, but when he learns that the guy's actual body is no longer working, Gilles has to decide if forcing him offline is really another name for murder.
Gilles tracks his friend's murderer to the Event Horizon of the Second Ambit and discovers that things are quite what they seem in the digital world.
Gilles doesn't know who to trust, but when he is abducted by the Corporate Consortium (the government), he begins to realize the magnitude of the conspiracy – and just how bad his own situation is.

A MUST LISTEN.
Despite being made in 2001, this audio drama is of an equal or higher quality than most modern dramas. This podcast deserves to be held in as high a regard as the most revered modern audio dramas.
It took me far too long to come across this one...do yourselves a favor and check it out!
Excellent and immersive
I found this podcast by accident while wandering down the rabbit hole. I'm SO glad I did! Immersive and complex, excellent sound design, interesting and well written story line. I was mostly happy with the voices, although having one person voice all the characters did get a little silly at times. Other than that (very) small quibble I loved this and will look for more by this creator!
Interesting, well acted, different
I wasn’t hooked immediately as I thought it was going to be an adventure an episode and computers/AI are only mildly interesting to me. But then it developed into an overarching story line that was fascinating. I listen to lots of podcasts, and am tired of the smart mouthed young adult saving the day against forces of evil. This was much more nuanced, with natural sounding dialogue and a complex storyline. It also had a very satisfying ending. I think it will be worth a relisten at some point and will look for more from these creators.
