The Gam3:

The Earth is changing. The alien invasion brought social upheaval, advanced technology, and an armada of peacekeeping robots. But Alan, a college student pursuing a now-useless degree, cares little about all of this. He has only one thing on his mind: the Game.

A fully immersive virtual reality, the Game appears to be a major part of the invading civilization. Alan can’t wait to play, recklessly diving into the digital universe. Soon though, Alan realizes the Game is anything but simple, and the stakes are higher than he ever imagined.

The Author:

Written by Ephemerality a.k.a. Cosimo Yap a.k.a. Alan. The author is an avid devourer of games, books, web fiction, manga, TV and anime, with far too many dreams. The Gam3 can also be found on RoyalRoadl and Amazon.

Updated biweekly sometime near Monday and Friday. Probably. Bonus chapters unlocked with Patreon support.

    Hi Cosimo! This is a fantastic book series. Found it on Audible, and I really can’t wait for the 3rd one. Unfortunately I see that the work stopped over half year ago. Is there any reason? Is there a way we can incentivise you to keep writing this awesome story?!?


  2. TDM says:

    Just cast my weekly vote, second week in a row, now that I know the story is active again. Do you plan to continue to post chapters here? Alternatively, any update on the ETA of the book release? I want to see Alan recover from his setback/betrayal and get back into the prison!!! (Erm… I mean… be a stalwart defender of his failing guild… or something like that.)

    Just re-read them again. I can’t tell you how much these books rock. Solid, no nonsense, logical, engulfing (that’s a word, right?) story, the scope is big without getting the reader lost in the vastness of it. Which really takes talent, keeping the reader engaged on the character and the story. AND its a real book, meaning an actual novel. Hope you can finish this! Don’t stop it is truly the best LitRPG book series out there.

    Love the books. When will book 3 be available on Amazon?

    I love all fantasy books with Brandon Sanderson and Patrick Rothfuss creating some of the best stories of the genre. However, over the last 18 months I have found myself reading more and more LitRPG. From the crossover of Andrew Rowe’s Sufficiently Advanced Magic to world building of Aleron Kong’s Land. Not to be a fan boy, but I really love The Gam3 series. The first two books smashed it out of the park and it is probably my favourite LitRPG. I can’t wait for book 3! Any indication of a release date for us impatient leaches would be welcomed. I understand us Yapping (no pun intended) like a litter of half staved puppies is not helping your creativity. Keep writing you’re awesome.

    Hi Cosimo

    I absolutely love your work and I really hope book 3 will be released on audible soon as I’m listening to book 1 and 2 again and enjoying them more than the first time I listened, which says a lot about your work! Please update us when you can

    Good evening,
    Sorry to trouble you but I need an advice if possible.
    I have written a book myself and I was wondering how did you manage to publish it ? Most impressively how did you accomplish the admirable feat of transforming your books to audiobooks ? Thank you very much for your books they were a breath of fresh air, I bought all of them as soon as they came out.


  14. Anna says:

    Will there be any subsequent books in the series?


  15. Dodd Timmerman says:

    Really enjoyed The Gam3 books 1-3 on audible. Will there be book 4 coming out in the near future?


  16. Kerry Bell says:

    I would also like to know if there will be a book 4? This is Litrpg, but so different and so well done. You left the story open, please continue; your an amazing Author.

    Absolutely awesome books! I just couldn’t stop listening to the series and in 2-3 weeks went through the series, listening to large parts twice. This is while working full time…
    The Gam3 is fast paced, great story, and imaginative scifi content. This is by far my favourite fiction book series I’ve ever read. Please keep up the good work!

    Hey man the series is awesome, I was sad when I read that you didn’t feel you were up to task in the epilogue. Honestly it’s one of the most interesting and in-depth series I’ve read in quite a while. I hope you change your Mind and come back to the gam3 right away.
