Retrograde (Ubu Experience #1) (Paperback)
BOOK 1 from the UBU Experience for Youth (ages 10 and up)
It's 2084, and you've spent about half your life solving virtual problems in the worlds of Alpha Q. You're good at solving problems. You're getting close to doing something no one believes anyone would ever do, and that's cracking Mythic Mayhem's famous code. Mythic Mayhem was--you could say "is"--the brilliant but disturbed founder of The Alpha Q Project, and creator of the infamous game you're playing now, Back to the Forever Future. The original came out in 2020, 64 years ago. In all this time no one has cracked the code of Mayhem's endless virtual world, and you think you're going to be the one?
Only Flux Capacitor Events lead you to 1 of 13 possible The End's. The only way to create a Flux Capactitor Event is to first find an Electrostatic Reverse Oscillation Chamber. Unfortunately, the results of the Event randomize your outcome. It cuts your chances about in half for a Utopian ending.
There are 27 Game Over's, which means either you've been caught in a time warp, or are permanently banned from, Mythic Mayhem's Back to the Forever Future virtual reality game.
Achieve ultimate greatness by discovering all 13 The End's. It's just a game. What could go wrong?
