The Extra Leg

Friday Fictioneer!

Every week, we get a chance to write a 100-word story about the photo prompt shared by Rochelle. This week, the photo is provided by J Hardy Carroll. Check more takes on the prompt why clicking here.

The mysterious game was designed to give the player the best virtual reality experience. All Andy had to do now is clear Level 235 – ‘The Extra Leg’. He knew that it’s game over if you touch the leg. This was the time he was collecting all those points for. He spent all of them to ask the system for a hint. Someone whispered, “This is not the leg the game is referring to.”

.

.

It took some time to sink in. His avatar needs to cut one of his legs. The problem? the character only imitates what he does in real life.

    1. Indeed it is. But that’s what people are demanding now. It should be as real as possible.

    1. Right! I left it open ended as this character could be one of those who would do anything to clear a level. There was a game called Blue Whale which created a mass suicide hysteria.
