SLAY - Brittney Morris

Okay, so Kiera is saying that she’s built the game over three years (starting when she was 14) using textures and character models crowdsourced (for free) from artists and coders in the player base. I guess it’s possible, but given the in-game descriptions, it’s still got to be in the future. Or an alternate Earth where VR socks are a thing. So far the most believable thing I’ve read about the gameplay is characters and their in-game pets glitching out and falling through the map. Why isn’t this marketed as sci-fi? Why make the Ready Player One connection in your ad copy and not follow through in your genre categories?
