Sven watched as the game-world of Titan’s Trinity lit up with a fire so big and intense, he could hardly see. Some of the game’s characters burned up in the flames. Others seemed to be playing in it. One Raider fanned the fire, helping it spread, breathing in the smoke and exhaling huge clouds of black ash.
“Come have fun with us, Sven!” The Raider taunted. “Come play, Ulrik!”
His brother! He needed to find his brother. “It’s just a game, it can’t hurt you,” Sven reminded himself and walked into the flames.
It didn’t take him long to find his brother. He was curled up on the ground, terrified. “It’s okay, Ulrik, I’m here.” Sven reassured him, picking him up and moving him as far away from the flames as he could.
Now, to find a way out. Closing his eyes, Sven scanned the system. He had to figure out where these images were coming from.
Was it a virus? Or a hack? Or a…
Beeeeeep. The scan detected something. Someone was uploading video files into their game!
He had to find the source. Going online, Sven followed the video files back to their source. They were coming from a computer in… the Academy?!
Sven hacked into their computer, took control of its camera and saw… a part of the Academy he had never seen before.
