In a virtual reality game called OtherVerse, Jackson spends his time questing and leveling up his avatar until an epic battle with his best friend makes him realize that his actions in the game have real-world consequences.
Jackson and Decker race home from school each day, eager to log into OtherVerse. They create their avatar, put on their VR glasses, and dive in. As a 10th anniversary gift, the game sends registered players a new version of the glasses — VisorX — for free. Unbeknownst to the players, the special glasses fuse with a user’s DNA and triggers real-life consequences. Decker is killed in the game and logged off. But there are repercussions in real life, too. Soon, other players are also going catatonic. Together, Birth and Jackson must face the game’s creator and save its players from the ultimate logoff.
