The secret is terrible but the story is not

So far I have read The Terrible Secret of Animal Crossing three times. I've never played the game, but I have been exposed to enough info about it to have an idea of what the game is supposed to be about. The author starts off slowly, working with actual game dialog and scenarios to tell the story of Billy, a kid who thought he was going to summer camp and has ended up in something more like a prison, working all day to pay off a crushing debt for a cabin he never agreed to buy and having to scavenge his own food. From there, it builds into a strong horror story that is compulsively readable — and I don't even normally read horror!
