Val Kozel wants people to know him. That's why he started vlogging and doing live speed-runs. Working alongside best friend and fellow streamer, August, he works toward internet fame. It finally looks like his efforts won't be in vain; his speed-running is helping him build a name for himself. He couldn't be happier.

For an early Halloween event, he and August take a request to play a seemingly childish indie game, known for the disappearances of its previous players. The only reason they accept is to debunk the rumors once and for all. What they don't realize is that might be easier said than done.

Soon enough, Val regrets even having downloaded the game in the first place. In a matter of days, life as he knew it has fallen apart before his eyes. In fact, it might be about to end. Alas, his viewers are oblivious to his horror. Because it's Halloween, they all think it's no more than a dramatized event …

A fictional suspense novella by Noƫlle McHenry about two streamers who make a fatal mistake.
