Developer: 4D Door Games

Publisher: Sekai Project

Genre: Interactive Story

Use your heart and wisdom to help those in need. There was an urban legend… Write your troubles down on a note. Hold it in your hand at midnight and pray. “God, please help me…” Then god will hear your plea. And change your fate. It was only a legend though. It wasn’t even popular for very long… A young girl wakes up, groggy in an unknown room. A talking dog appears before her and she becomes startled by the revelation he tells her: They are gods and it is their duty to change the fate of any humans that ask for their help. Letters appear in the mail and with pen in hand she begins her job. People who believe in this legend live all over the world, in every shape and form. They write and pray to the gods, seeking help for their troubles: A quiet nerd stuck in a hopeless, one-sided crush. An impoverished artist who’s lost all hope and contemplates suicide. A rookie police officer who burns with justice and hopes for his first big case. A young woman desperately chasing her dream against all odds. Evan a stray cat who would be simply satisfied with some dried fish to eat. They say that a god is good and makes choices for the greater good. However, are these really the best choices for mortals? With the power to change the fate of humankind, dive deep into the story and learn about those that seek out your help but remember, changing someone’s fate will have an effect on others whether they are interconnected or not. As you read through each story, perhaps the young girl’s memory will also return but what will she learn about herself and her mission?

The storytelling is where WILL: A Wonderful World shines best, especially when multiple character's stories begin to overlap, showing the same scenes, but from different perspectives.

I did enjoy how the stories intertwined with one another, but there were also times when I wouldn't get a letter from one character for hours and it would be hard to pick up where his or her story left off. Before picking this one up, be aware that it's essentially a novel with multiple characters and various endings to discover to move the overall story forward. I'm thinking to myself: it is a wonderful world, but not necessarily a wonderful game.

Instead of the traditional crossroads of visual novels, WILL: A Wonderful World lets you play with a bunch of separate stories by altering specific parts within them... and then doing so again to follow an alternative path. This intriguing mechanic isn't as good as it sounds, though, and the game is in some dire need for some additional artwork. At least the various plot threads are good enough to make this a pleasant recommendation for genre fans.

WILL: A Wonderful World is an entertaining visual novel/puzzle game with an interesting gameplay loop. The stories of the characters you will get to interact with are interesting and will encourage you to come back to the game as you learn more about them and how their lives interact with the rest. You're looking at 8-10 hours to complete the game depending on how good you are at finding the solution to each puzzle, and if you go for finding 100% of all endings for each scenario.
