Virtual Life Adventures

Dare to ride the Internet in a netbike!!


The Virtual Life Adventures are set in the near future when a high security "Secnet" has been rolled out across the world. The new network supports virtual reality gaming - Cyberpod harnesses that give users a fully immersible gaming experience. Access to the network is by hacker proof Iris Recognition Scanners - until 12-year-old gamers Zane and Megan exploit a weakness and crack the Secnet.

Net Riders: Dare to ride

When Zane and Megan crack the Secnet, they stumble across Project Net Rider.

It’s an awesome Cyber Warfare program with a virtual netbike to infiltrate any computer in the new global network.

But the software is dangerous—and in the wrong hands—capable of unlimited destruction. So when the notorious Haxta steals a copy, the entire world is threatened.

And the two friends have to risk everything to stop him.

Dread World: Dare to play (Coming soon)

For Zane and Megan, using the Net Rider program again was a calculated risk. They could see each other as avatars in virtual life and still be safe . . . as long as they remained inside the computer workspace. Then Megan's little brother Todd jacks into VR and gets trapped in Dread World.

Zane and Megan have to use the virtual life mode to enter the game and find him. But this time the game’s deadly creatures can kill. And the two gamers have to play the game of their lives to survive.
