Guy is a bank teller at Free City Bank who lives a simple existence. He exudes positivity and cheerful optimism and is always up for a good cup of coffee. Like his best friend, Buddy, he has a zest for life but all that changes when Guy discovers he is actually a background player in the ultra-violent, open-world video game “Free City.” Distributed by Soonami Studios, which is run by the greedy mogul Antwan, “Free City” is a wildly popular game where chaos and devastation reign. Players live an unabashed existence within the game and level-up by committing unprovoked acts of hostility and vandalism. Guy meets and is immediately smitten with the uber-sexy Molotovgirl, who helps him navigate the game and come to terms with the fact that the only life he has known is not real. Molotovgirl, whose name in the real world is Millie, has a bone to pick with Soonami, as she believes Antwan took the codes from a game she and her friend, Soonami programmer Keys, sold the company.

As Guy begins to take on a more active role as a good person—an idealist in a cynical world where there are no limits—he becomes a champion for both the players and the other NPC’s (non-playable characters) and the hero of his own story…one he is rewriting himself. Guy’s popularity continues to grow and Antwan, realizing the serious threat he poses to the future of “Free City” and, more specifically, its sequel “Free City: Carnage,” deploys Keys and a Soonami coder named Mouser to permanently remove Guy from the game. Now it is up to Guy to be the guy who saves his world his way.
