The Write Recipe: GAME ON!
It was like any other day when you were plugged in to your favourite game. Outside, the rain was coming down in sheets and claps of thunder punctuated the sound effects from your game.
All of a sudden, a flash of lightning tore across the sky and the room went black. At the same moment, you felt yourself being pulled by a force forward and there was no stopping it. “Ahhhh!” you screamed as you felt yourself travelling at the speed of light through a tunnel of blur.
As suddenly as it began, it stopped. You blinked as you looked around and you realised. You are no longer playing the game. You are in the game.
The good news is you are not alone.
In order to exit the game, you need to acquire several skills and your game masters, Ms Xie and Ms Quek aim to:
