The story follows in the footsteps of Wade Owen Watts, a 2045 video game player who, like the rest of humanity, prefers the OASIS virtual reality universe to the increasingly corrupt real world. In this imaginary paradise, its creator hid the pieces of a puzzle whose resolution leads to a fortune of USD 500 billion and the total control of the company that maintains OASIS.
The clues needed to win are based on the popular culture of the 80s and the life of the creator. For years, millions of humans have tried to discover them, without success. Wade manages to decipher the first puzzle and, from that moment, must compete against thousands of players and a rival company to get the prize.
