Jack Splatt: Daring commando. Legendary hero. And completely fictional…
But try telling HIM that.
First Commander Jack Splatt is a one-man army. He’s fought entire campaigns against impossible odds with little more than a pack of chewing gum, his washboard abs, and a killer smile that makes women swoon.
Unfortunately, he’s only a video game character.
Developer and slightly obsessed fanboy Barry Lang is trying to bring his ’80s-era hero Jack to life — literally — through a new extreme-immersion augmented reality system. But when the Army comes knocking to seize his tech, he panics and activates the only not-yet-working build of the untested system. On himself.
That’s when Jack takes the wheel and starts doing what he does best: Taking out the bad guys. With Barry’s body. While Barry’s still in there.
Barry’s a far cry from a powerhouse of physical perfection, and Jack’s not the sharpest tool in the shed. But somehow they have to work together to stay ahead of the police, the Army, and random people Jack keeps pissing off along the way…
If only Barry could make Jack understand that in real life, you don’t get any respawns.
