PWNED is a gamer book that everyone can enjoy. Set in the robust world of professional Starcraft 2 gaming, it combines all the twists and turns of a classic thriller with unstoppable geekery.
Sean Boxer, professional gamer, is headed to The GSL Starcraft 2 Tournament in South Korea to go head-to-head with his rival, Norman MacArthur. When Norman decides to play dirty and sets Sean up as the subject of an FBI investigation, Sean is stuck in America until the red tape is cleared. Which could take years.
Faced with the choice to either play nice and let Norman win the tournament, or defy The Man and escape the country, Sean chooses defiance. Drawing on the help of his teammates ProfPlum and Mercedes, he sneaks out of the country with the FBI hot on his heels.
Getting to the tournament turns out to be the easy part. Sean has to dodge FBI agents all while trying to figure out a way to clear his name, so that when he returns to America, it isn’t in handcuffs.
One of the few video game books that will appeal to a wide audience, PWNED has all the intrigue of an international fugitive story with just enough gamer goodness to keep things interesting.
