Our World is Ended

Our World is Ended! So it is time to reach out to the clouds. Utomik Cloud, to be more specific.

Today, Utomik has added Our World is Ended to its library of games, alongside some other titles that, sadly, are not available via their cloud service. However, Our World is Ended is a great addition to their cloud gaming catalog, and those who enjoy visual novels will be interested in it.

Developed by Red Entertainment and published by PQube Games, Our World is Ended is a Japanese visual novel with science fiction elements. Released initially in 2017, the game has since been re-released in many consoles and platforms. The game has 40 achievements that are obtained while advancing through the plot and reaching the different endings.

Here’s the overview given on Utomik’s website:

Our World is Ended follows Judgement 7, a team of young developers working on a brand new game engine called the W.O.R.L.D program. When wearing an Augmented Reality headset, this revolutionary program changes the landscape in real time.

When Reiji, the game part-time director, tries the program in the streets of Asakusa, he catches a glimpse of an unsettling cityscape. Could this be a glitch, or is there more to it than meets the eye?

His doubts are soon to be confirmed, as the members of Judgement 7 will find themselves trapped between fiction and the real world. Characters and creatures from their previous games have breached this world and now risk becoming reality. The city is on the verge of being overwritten, and its fate hangs in the balance and in your actions.

Judgement 7’s battle to bring the world back is about to begin!

Short Review of Our World is Ended

Being a fan of Japanese visual novels, Our World is Ended grabbed my attention shortly after it’s Nintendo Switch release. At first, I was kinda worried that the game would be 100% fan service, considering the trailers and screenshots. Good thing I decided to do my research, given that aside from some occasional scenes in given points – specially at the start – the game takes a more serious approach at the mid-point of the story. From what you can guess from the summary given above, the main characters are a team of game developers. While working on a VR headset, they become trapped in a virtual world. What starts as a cheerful and somewhat childish adventure, quickly becomes a desperate struggle for survival filled with drama. I won’t spoil the plot, of course, but just let me say that there’s more to the game than the trailers let go.

Being a visual novel, gameplay is fairly limited. Of course, you’ll have to read. A lot, the game took me around 35 hours to complete and reach all the different endings. From time to time, there are special events that require the player input to select different options and plot paths. As for the presentation, it’s what to be expected from most Japanese visual novels. Anime aesthetics, characters with unique designs, some better than others, and of course, occasional fan service. The soundtrack is pretty good, and even has some memorable songs. Most scenes are also voice-acted, with talented Japanese voice actors and actresses that give charm to their characters.

To keep it simple

If you are interested in the genre and what I’ve said, by any means, give it a shot. Despite some perverted jokes, specially at the start, there’s an interesting plot with great moments sprinkled across the way. Some endings are better than others, of course. But let me just say that the true ending left me scratching my head for a few days. In a good way. Overall, I recommend the game for visual novel enjoyers. Or, at least, those who like anime and manga inspired in sci-fi stories.
