The GameLit Bundle – Curated by Anthea Sharp
Did you love Ready Player One? Laugh out loud at the new Jumanji? This StoryBundle is for you!
Books inspired by gaming have been around for decades, but GameLit as a recognized genre is relatively new. Also called litRPG, many of the books include stats, play-by-play boss fights, and characters gaining levels and skills right there on the page. As one of the early writers adding MMO-type gameplay to my stories (starting with The Dark Realm in 2011) I’ve been watching the development of this genre with extreme pleasure, and am delighted to bring you nine books from some of the best GameLit writers in the field.
(A flash of golden light surrounds you)
<<Congrats! You have gained the title *Epic Collector of Stories*>>
<HERE for loot description…>>
The GameLit StoryBundle explores the breadth of the genre – from futuristic worlds reminiscent of Ready Player One (The Park Online, Massively Multiplayer) to MMO-inspired portal fantasy (The Bright Court) to the wonderfully imagined tale of a teddy bear leveling up his sentience (Threadbare Volume 1: Stuff and Nonsense).
You’ll get not one, but two StoryBundle exclusives, with The Park Online and Temple of Sorrow. There’s a USA Today bestseller, several award-winning authors, and enough stats, levels, boss fights, and epic loot to keep any gamer happy.
Not a hardcore gamer? Don’t worry! At the heart of all of these books are engaging stories about characters struggling to find their place in the world, to do good, and to figure things out. I hope their adventures entertain you, give you a laugh, and inspire you to face your own particular battles with courage and strength. Happy reading. – Anthea Sharp
