Dying to be undead, 30 Nov. 2011
This is a book about a Wizard. Or at least a novice wizard. Did I mention he's dead?
Set in "Mogworld", an MMORPG, where no one can die. This also means no one can be born. So the main character will have to do something about that. For what ultimate goal you may ask? So that he can finally die properly...
Reading this book, I thought of Pratchett, Gaiman, Adams and more, but edgier. The jokes are brilliant and cynical, but go a bit further than the whimsical nature of the aforementioned authors. The only reason I would not read this book is if you have no foreknowledge of MMORPGs. Some knowledge is required for the pure joy of the jokes.
So to sum up: If Yahtzee writes another book I will preorder 5 years in advance. If he does not write another book I will spend my life making video games that I know will annoy him.
