Read my short story in a genre I call Academic Fiction, or Speculative Ethnography. Here is the opening:
On Friday, November 13 2020, a large group of Omniloft employees got news that their contracts were about to be terminated. Located in the former industrial district, in a remodelled textile factory, Omniloft is a large game development company known worldwide for its shooter and survival triple-A titles. It might have been the recent wave of Covid19 layoffs, or the ongoing outsourcing and downsizing, but early that morning over a hundred people climbed the stairs up to the rooftop terrace and barricaded themselves in protest. Outraged at the audacity, the HR fate spinners inside dialed 911 to report disorderly trespassing, when things took an unexpected turn.
