Bara Cailín 4: 20 ‘the chance to act’

As the cut scene from Level Four of the Bara Cailín game (for console, laptop and tablet) continues the player(s) can see that waves and waves cockroaches are now falling from the ceiling and landing in the water with the plop and the splash that Inteachán heard just a moment ago. The player now knows that following the cut scene they will have the chance to act and take likely evasive action.

Knowing the way that games work, this will probably involve running very fast in a particular direction and making sure to press the ‘Jump’ button at the right moment so as to avoid the endless waves of cockroaches. Or opening up Inteachán’s Inventory and finding something that will help her animated, motion-captured avatar face this new challenge.

But this is real life not a game and so Inteachán didn’t know that she was about to be engulfed by cockroaches until the very second before she was engulfed by cockroaches.

Inspired by his passion for films and video games, Barnaby Taylor loves writing dystopian science fiction and horror. He has recently written the VIRO series about a gang of teenagers struggling to survive in a world overrun by the infected. There are currently three books in the series and Book Four is on the way. VIRO is rapidly infecting the Amazon charts and gaining rave reviews along the way. Here's one of the latest reviews: 'I found myself sucked right into the characters and never-ending action and gore page after page. I very rarely buy books, but immediately purchased number two which I found equally as engrossing. Yesterday I bought book three in the VIRO series and instead of a good night's sleep I've got red eyes and a need for Red Bull! Fantastic series for all my zombie lovers out there!' Book One is currently FREE to download at the following links: Barnaby posts weekly updates on his writing on his blog and you can follow these updates at You can also find him on Twitter @BarnabyFTaylor.
