“Sword & Magic Online,” a VRMMO consisting of 255 floors to clear, harbors a horrible secret: Everything past floor two hasn’t been implemented yet. And all the devs ran away. “What are you gonna do about this?!” “We’re gonna create them now!” “People are already close to beating floor one, you know?!” “No problem, I’ll let everyone die at the final boss!” Also, there is no magic in this world of swords and magic, the gold value has inflated indefinitely due to a dupe glitch, this kusoge (fixed term for a shitty game) is going down the toilet. And yet, there are friends enjoying this kind of game. For that reason, the youth Sasaraki starts to develop this kusoge world further together with the mysterious girl Alice, who dwells in the debugging room, to avoid this world’s destruction (end of service), and…? A VR Kusoge development rom-com!
