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.
Definitely a classic sci fi audio drama!! Decades since it’s release and it still holds up
This podcast absolutely rocks!
If you like The Matrix, Ready Player One, Neuromancer, or Snowcrash, you will LOVE this podcast. Probably one of my favs of all time
now. Crazy that its 21 years old?!
I’m neither an author, podcaster, voice actor, nor sound designer, but every once I stumble upon a story I find so enjoyable that I wish I had the talent to pen (keyboard) something as well written (and, yes, every other aspect of this is great).
Were there thumbs instead of stars, I would give this Homer Simpson’s highest rating: Eleven Thumbs Up.
