Rumours are interesting. Almost anything can be dismissed as nothing more than a rumour, until you come face to face with it and can’t deny it anymore. There have been a lot or rumours surrounding the Game Station, such as what happens to losing contestants. It’s generally believed that they’re incinerated; the stakes are high for anyone wanting to play, but if you win, the rewards are worth the risk.
There are other rumours too, about Floor Five Hundred, where all employees hope to be promoted to. They’re not true either; there are no walls of gold, there’s only death.
