Description

Would you be prepared to work for free? How would you like to bust your hump for a large corporation 60-plus hours a week without a wage or a single day off for the vague promise of some mysterious perks in the distant future?

You'd refuse point blank, wouldn't you? But what if the job in question was playing a state-of-the-art fantasy MMORPG game? And what if this was the only thing you're really good at? Especially considering that your in-game partner is someone really special to you - and this person already lives a virtual life?

Knowing all this, would you consider the mysterious future bonus worth your while?

Different and Good LitRPG

First, I thought the title, “Video Game Plotline Tester,” sucked, in fact I almost didn’t buy the book because the Title seemed too institutional and sterile, which is the exact opposite of the story, which I found creative and refreshing with a different perspective on the LitRPG genre. It does describe perfectly, however, how the main character, Timothy, begins the story as a “Dark Herbalist,” for a video game plotline test.
With so many LitRPG coming out all of the time now it seems a challenge for writers to be different and still fulfill all of the needs that make a great LitRPG. In most of these we follow the main character while he/she quickly levels and eventually becomes the hero of the realm. What I like about “Video game plotline tester,” is it doesn’t go by the usual script. Timothy, by design, has to play a low- life character that, by design, has difficulties leveling up.
I’ve listened to the three “Audio,” books that have come out, so far, and I have to say this series tells a good tale inside the digital world and out in the real world of the story, with twists and turns that has me wondering how Michael Atamanov is going to continue in the next book; but I can’t wait, this is very entertaining.

A fun read!

I'll definately be getting the next two books in this series. It does have some flaws, but nothing that can't be overlooked. The biggest thing is it seems like english isn't the writers first language, a lot of text is pretty simplistic, almost like you know the language but not a lot of synonyms to change up what is being written. Still the characters are pretty cool, and it keeps you interested. I listened to it all the way through in one sitting. Definately give the book a try you won't be sorry.

Well done! Top 10 of litRPG.

This series has some real potential! It balances well the “technical” growth of stats with action and adventure. Love the use of an unconventional character. I have listened to the first two books and I am hooked! Definitely worth the credit. Don’t get turned off by the silly and cartoonish cover.

Absolutely loved it.

I read this book and it makes me wish I could have that job. The world is very interesting and the PC and NPCs are very well thought out and mysterious. leaves you with a hunger for more.

Solid litRPG

What happens when you are put into the worse class with the worst stats and your job depends on making it fun? You think better...

Great story with a blend of R/L and RPG mixed in and an engaging storyline of a guy doing his best in a bad situation. Great for those MMO players who are not your standard golden triangle types and want a person who succeeds by his wits (along with some helpful misfits) Looking forward to the ongoing series very much!

Definitely worth a listen

Engaging characters, interesting conflicts and a very cool world. I think that last point was the biggest draw for me, though in general it was a fun and relatively stress-free romp. The ending did fall a little flat, but I'm certainly eager for the sequel.

Ready Player One, but less AND more epic

The sub-genre of sci-fi/fantasy that is developing around videogames is fascinating. I've read a few books because of that fascination. This book. Well, it has elements that made Readu Player One great, but it doesn't have the flaws that made that book hard to read. The title is anti-climatic, but the content made me want to stay up late to listen. This is worth your time. Especially if you've enjoyed books like Reafy Player One. It relies significantly less on reference and nostalgia, and stands firmly on its own as a good story.

highly amused

What did you love best about Video Game Plotline Tester?

I like how big ears has an unusual character and seems to succeed at it which is what you figure will happen when you follow a character around.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Video Game Plotline Tester?

There were a lot of memorable moments. I found it interesting they get in capsules to physically be in the game. I liked him meeting up with his sister in game and she is disabled and can't walk in real life but in the game she can and she feels whole in the game. I caught myself smiling through some events and chanting in the background for other events. LOL

What does Eric Michael Summerer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I like the way he did the voices of characters and the inflection he used while reading. I had a hard time pushing pause to go to sleep or answer the phone at work.

Any additional comments?

I hope there is a book 2 to continue where we left off. We aren't even lv 30 yet so there is a lot of room to make a 2nd book. I almost didn't get this book because the title was a little ambiguous and it seemed like a book for kids, I'm glad I took a chance on it though because in my mid 30's I really enjoyed this audio book! I loved that it was a longer audio book, I really had no idea the book was originally in another language and translated to English. It was really well done!

Sexism and thin characterization in combination with either a poor translation or bad writing style mar what otherwise could have been a fair popcorn-flick book.

Strong narration with good voices and intonation.

Surprisingly good if you MMORPG

I was a little anxious about this title given the rather cheesy cover and the fact that it was translated from the original language (Russian I think).

My fears were unfounded though and it was a fun book - I immediately downloaded the second in the series after finishing this. An original plot line and a very good reader. Fascinating treatment of the gaming world.

If you are not a MMORPG player however I don’t think you will enjoy this - simply too many game stats.
