New Australia (A LitRPG)

Original COMPLETED Action Adventure Fantasy Gender Bender LitRPG Magic Male Lead Martial Arts Secret Identity Strategy Strong Lead

The game-like alternate dimension of New Australia teems with life: humongous beasts, flourishing civilizations, and a bewildering array of lush ecosystems.

The only problem (aside from the constant war that plagues most fantasy lands): humans.  The World Government is sending all its unwanted humans to New Australia.  Murderers. Political Dissidents.  Assorted felons.  It's not technically the death penalty, and it saves a bundle on prison expenditures.

Then there's Jerome, who just happened to be at the wrong place (sneaking into a top-secret government facility) at the wrong time (when it was guarded, aka all the time).

Can he make it in this fantastic new world?  More importantly, will he stay a child, or will he become the hero that New Australia needs?

What should you expect?

* Tactical action scenes (LOADS of them)
* Starts with some light-hearted comedy before getting serious
* A mysterious world with bizarre but consistent internal logic
* MC grows from bumbling idiot to whirlwind of death
* Also some emotional character development, if you're into that kind of thing
* Stat sheets!

I have signed the pledge to finish this story.  All I had to do was give them a drop of blood and my true name "just in case".

In a world filled with generic fantasy, game element, hero summoning web novels, I don't expect to see much new.  I do however hope to see something interesting.  This just wasn't it.  I found this story to be overly silly, simplified, and juvenile.   

The MC lacks any depth, intelligence, or realism.  He gains some world breaking super power with no effort.  Totally bypasses the hero's journey unless you consider a page of fake drunken wandering to be a hero's journey. 

If the author's goal was comedy, then I will say good start and keep trying.  Comedy is a pain to write and takes a lot of work.  Just try to focus on some more realism.  Reality is comedic.  If the author's goal wasn't comedy then...oops?

interesting differences

Very interesting characters and setup for both worlds described in this book. The dynamic between the 2 MCs is fertile grounds for future interactions and character growth. The Mcs op power is accuately described in Universe as potentially game breaking, if its owner could get his ass into gear.

What can I say. There seems to be character development going on, mc has a cheat but seems not to be op (just incredible strong for his level) and the background story also seems interesting (not too much is revealed as of chapter 22 since there are no infodumps).

 

Furthermore I find nice that the stats do something (strength makes the mc more muscular etc.).

Follow Fail-hero as he removes his brain and rolls downhill in a Murder-hobo paradise. The author is sick in the head and needs to remove the comedy tag and replace it with grimdark. That kind of bad tagging is just messed up. Otherwise, it's pretty good and well written.

Has a good start. The mc is a bit on the annoying side but is already showing development. Has a great power that gives him the posibility to be very strong but only with work. The mc might become very strong but probably not op.
