Jeremy Chin is walking home from school. The sky looks strangely clear??"there??s no smog. Only a menacing blimp with black dragon wings, dumping out a glimmering dust. Everything it falls on??"the skyscrapers, the trees, and yes, even the people??"begins to disappear.
And so begins Jeremy??s quest for survival.
When he wakes up in a strange hospital, the world Jeremy has known for 17 years is gone. He has landed in the Lattice, a collective of remnant world fragments and their survivors.
But Jeremy has survived one world only to join a war in another. As he and his newfound companions travel the Lattice in search of answers about the Engine, a force that seems to control everything but no one really understands, they battle enemies like roboninjas and giant insectoids??"just the minions of a much greater enemy determined to rebuild the Lattice, even if it means erasing the entire Lattice and starting from scratch.
As Jeremy discovers that the more he follows video game physics and logic, the better chance he has of survival, he also wonders: Will he ever see his father again?
At once a mind-gripping mystery and an emphatic nod to video game culture, Double Jump will thrill gamers who will recognize archetype characters, levels, and gameplay elements as a backdrop for a patchwork crew of characters with surprising depth who band together to not only survive, but to save their world.
Part action-adventure, part science fiction, and part mystery??"even non-gamers won??t be able to stop wondering what happens to Jeremy and why he can figure out almost everything??"except how to double jump.
