The story is set in a dystopian future where most of humanity spends their time in a virtual reality world called the OASIS, created by a brilliant and eccentric game designer named James Halliday. The plot follows protagonist Wade Watts as he competes in a high-stakes treasure hunt within the OASIS, with the winner gaining control of the entire virtual world.
