Echo Hunt: When Video Games Invade Reality
Over the course of our lifetimes, many of us will clock hundreds, if not thousands of hours into our favorite video games. From shooters like Halo and Modern Warfare to RPGs like Final Fantasy and Mass Effect, there are limitless possibilities to what can be experienced through the use of a controller.
But what if those experiences were taken out of the TV screen and thrown into your everyday life? That's the basic setup for Echo's Revenge: The Ultimate Game.
The story centers on brothers Reggie and Jeremy, expert Echo's Revenge gamers who have discovered that ECHO-7, a new and indestructible game predator, has developed the ability to reverse the rules of its own video game and hunt the boys down in the real world.
IGN recently got a chance to speak with the book's author Hart Getzen, who offered some insight into the continually sprawling world of Echo Hunt, as well as the gaming community at large.
