Warning This fiction contains:
  • Gore
  • Profanity
  • Sexual Content
  • Traumatising content

A discussion of people, monsters, and the nature of reality, all with the scenic backdrop of a litRPG and violent death.

Anthony is your average, unassuming programmer that wakes up from a dream only to find the world he knew is gone, along with much of his memory of it. He is forced to fight for his life (badly) and try to help others (unwillingly) in a desperate bid for not only his own survival, but that of humanity as a whole. 

Join me on my first expedition into writing anything longer than a book report as I ramble endlessly and attempt to cushion the whole thing with exotic adventures in a game world.

Gamelit fantasy with potential!

Overall: The novel is in its early stages but it already has character and a more interesting plot progression than half of the stories I read. Its new and its raw but like a fine wine, this one is going to get better with time,  edits and more chapters.

Style: Its written from a 1st person perspective and the writing reflects it. Some will love it since the whole shtick of writing in the perspective puts you as a reader in the shoes of the protag. Some won't like it but thats life.

Story: The plot is interesting so far and follows somewhat similarly to the plot of another novel I've read (The Mad One? i think it was called) but has its own take on it and in my opinion does it a fair bit better.

Grammar: Not much to say here, I didn't notice any errors.

Character: So far as of (ch19) there aren't many characters that we know are going to be regular fixtures so I'll focus on the MC. He's a bit confused but he's doing his best all things considered and seems like he's going to grow with challenges and struggles rather than be broken by them.

I enjoyed my time reading and if you give this novel a chance then it's likely you will too : )

Really good so far.  good MC development as well, excellent work.  No real grammer issues that I have noticed.  Truely a good start, especially considering that this is the authors first work.

  • Overall Score

Please release like 300 chapters. I'm hooked. I need my fix.

  • Overall Score

Enjoyed this immensely

 So far I'm loving this story. This review is made after reading up to chapter 57 in one day. I thought that the flow is great the concept was interesting, I think that the progression could be a bit faster, but overall extremely happy to have spent time reading this.

  • Overall Score

Very intelligent author with good story

Personally I really appreciate the "long-winded monologues" and self-doubt that the main character goes through because I can empathize with that as I do that quite a bit...

The story is good, perhaps a little bit scattered, but hey I still appreciate the work you do author-san! :3

  • Overall Score

Needs more show and less tell

Interesting and entertaining but far too much of the story is told through wandering, long-winded inner monologues and exposition.

Show don't tell.

I suggest you give this story a try. Here's why.


As of chapter 62: So far so good. The chapters feel a little short, but are released pretty quickly. The characters have about 2.5 dimensions, but that's somewhat justified given the premise of none of them having any memories. The author tends to focus on developing one side character at a time. Others exist but are little more than names. Granted, that could be a flaw in the protagonist's perspective, but we don't get any hints or sidebars to flesh out all the others. So far he's encountered maybe a dozen others. Three disappeared almost instantly and off camera. Three I'm not sure what there names are or any distinguishing characteristics about them. I just know they must exist because the group was said to have 10 people in it.


Okay, maybe I'm criticizing a little to much. The author is new and starts off well and consistently has improved so far.


And I'm enjoying the story and intrigued by his world. Maybe it's cliché or maybe there are depths only hinted at so far. And it's not as if any of them have had a chance to check it out so far, so lots of potential there.


I'm gonna rate this 4.5 stars. Maybe a little more than it's earned so far, but I believe it'll get there. And I want to encourage more people to check it out and encourage this author to keep it up.


See ya next time space cowboys.

Great story, worth a read, I look forward to seeing where it goes next. 

Style: Enjoyable style, with good metaphors, flow, and descriptive language. Only place the author loses points is occasionally having a whole chapter of just the MC thinking, as often happens in first person stories. That's improved as well in more recent chapters.

Story: The story definitely seems to borrow from Randidly Ghosthound, especially the system/world, but it has enough individuality and twists in it to be its own thing, and everything is executed quite well so far.

Grammar: Not perfect, but among the best you see on the site, with a noticeable error maybe once every other chapter.

Characters: The characters are great. Everyone who's focused on has a good bit of depth, and the story doesn't spread itself too thin or rush their development. Also, the main character actually has motivations and personality traits, rather than zen power creep, so that's a plus. 

  • Overall Score

A good story so far. chp.51

The story started a little slowly for me but it improved greatly after the first few chapters.  It's now been added to my list to watch as the start has been good and the author appears to be improving with each additional chapter.
