All my life I've wondered about the big questions. Why is the universe like it is? Why does the act of observation change a wave into a particle?
When I read an article about procedural software generation the pieces came together. The universe must game, defined by the participant's actions.
With that understanding I realized that I must be the player, with everyone else just being constructs. So why not have some fun? I collected my guns.
Meanwhile, across town, Sam cleaned his new sniper rifle. He'd just joined the SWAT team and really wanted to shoot someone.
