Networked

Video game designers Nick and Dan find their half-finished project suddenly replaced with a game that is finished - and brilliant. Soon players everywhere find themselves immersed in an incredible new virtual world. But events in the game become increasingly sinister, taking over the lives of players and blurring the lines with reality.

As Nick's life is thrown into turmoil he fears for his friend Dan, and his wife Lily, both of whom seem to be drawn to the game to escape their own troubles, and he finds himself increasingly asking: Where has the game come from? Who made it? What is it for? And most importantly... What does it want from them?

Networked is a compelling tale of three people - one who just wants to take care of his family, one who feels isolated and angry, and one who is trying to be free from depression, and their experiences with one incredible game: A game where they ultimately find themselves questioning what it means to be human, what it means to be alive, and what life is.
