Our nameless narrator is addicted to the Broken World, an immersive, outlandishly detailed computer experience that he keeps telling us is not just a game "but an entire world" in which Ray, the game's hero, has to both fight and think to save the planet and his beloved Rachel from the bad guys. The game is impossibly huge, taking up an inordinate amount of playing time, which turns it into a not altogether subtle metaphor of the narrator's own steadily collapsing life

When you first start The Broken World, you’ll see just normal logosand after that you will see a field of ordinary black and then thetitle music will softly start to sound softly. I picked up echoes of JG Ballard, Thomas Pynchon, William Vollmann, even Brett Easton Ellis, but in the end Tim Etchells sidesteps all comparisons with a sensibility that is quite unique.

Tim Etchells novel The Broken World takes the form of a guide to a crazed computer game of the same name. In our unique A-Z extract his narrator takes us on a whirlwind tour of this Borgesian shoot-em-up adventure. July 2 2008, 4:39pm, The Times. Action: Hear me - there is plenty of action in The Broken World so do not be in a hurry to get in trouble. You will need (1) to get the Weapons and (2) to practise the Jump and Roll and the Stealth Attack. There is more than enough Action for anyone.

For fans of Douglas Coupland and J.G. Ballard, The Broken World is an extremely original, off-beat novel – part fiction, part computer game – about life, love and happiness, not just in the real world, but in the online one too.
