Will they be forced to break the fourth wall? NPCs follows the exploits of Private Montgomery and Captain Jacobs as they shoot, slash and strafe their way through the videogame industry. Contending with twelve year olds, bad programming and the horrors of online gaming; working together they may just find a way to make life easier not just for themselves but also their entire team.
