(Outdated) Simular Beings

In a predacious, corporate world of advanced cybernetics, the life of a young boy is put to the test. What kind of test?

A Turing test.

And the only reason being that he was born within the confines of a simulated reality.

His plan is to escape. But escape isn’t all that easy within a world where anything is possible. Especially not when his examiner is the all-seeing creator. And while he suffers through it all, a burning question starts to smolder within his young mind—why does he have to go through with this in the first place?

Little does he know… escape is the least of his concerns.

*As of April 2023 - Don't read this. It's bad. I'm currently revising a better version.

*As of May 2024 - Contest is no problem anymore. I'll probably start posting soon on other platforms. Right after I revise it one more time. Idk how, but it's already 30k words longer than the original draft. Maybe it'll get even longer after fixing it one more time lol.
