A game played, a game won by putting the controls down

The rules were undefined, by design to keep the player inside

Trapped in a digital world, no flight, fight is the only option

Virtual npc’s, manufactured objectives, mismatched connections

Player becomes catalyst, conduit, part of code

Coder reprograms player, no player no coder

Debug of conduit imperative, negative pathways

Source of malfunction found, persistent virus extracted

Perfect system emerges, objective clear, primary pathway open

Npc’s become tangible, player regains spark, games commence
