I Am Going To Die (In This Game-Like Dimension)

by HC Mills

Original ONGOING Adventure Comedy Female Lead LitRPG Magic

When mysterious portals start opening up around the world at large events, swallowing everybody, you’d think that would warrant some kind of danger pay when you have to sell hotdogs at a Comic Con, right? ‘No, of course not; what are the odds of that happening here, out of all the big events in the world?’

Well, Emma was always pretty good at beating the odds when it came to shitty luck.

Now she’s stuck in a strange dimension, where the normal rules don’t seem to apply, together with a costumed crowd who seem strangely happy about this whole thing.

At least, until the first people start dying.

Second best review of 2018

This review was written after the release of chapter 15. Let's break it down into categories:

Style: First of all, I love the references that make up the titles of the chapters. I don't always get them, but when I do, they're very clever. Next, since the story is written in first person, the style kind of overlaps with the character category, so I'll get to more later.

Grammar: I don't notice any flaws in grammar. I'm no native English speaker, however.

Story: what stands out to me most, is how logical the choices of the MC feel in the story, even when they are extremely dangerous. I would probably not make the same choices as her if I stood in her shoes, but I don't think about that when I'm reading; it all feels natural.

Characters: the MC has a very clear personality. Her character makes the story fun to read. She can't help but express her dry humor, even in her Hunger Games-like life-or-death situation. The other character we read about most until now is her artificial intelligence companion Suri, and I can't help but ship them after chapter 10.

Keep up the good work!

[I know its just 1 Chapter and ''why are you reviewing it now".

I just wanted to encourage the autor.

Grammar: I haven't found an error

Character/Story: Its promising]

Edit:

 So, with 4 chapters and the story unveiling i think its time to make a good review.

Style: With my reading experience (which isnt small) i simply can say that i like how this is written. Its a but fast paced, but that doesn't hurt at all.

Story: The story itself is good. Its not the most original but it dont have to be. If you read it you will notice that the plot is well though-out and gets explained bit by bit which simply makes you want for more. 

Grammar: As i'm not a native speaker i won't and can't say much but i didn't notice any flaws so thats a win in my opinion.

And finally,

Character: This is in my opinion the most crucial part of a story. The grammar can be buchered, the plot doesn't advance but if the MC or the other Characters aren't fleshed out and likable. You won't read the story.

And here  the big potential i see in the story. The MC has a personality, the sidecharacters aren't simply puppets and even if there may be changes in the future and prove me wrong, you simply can edit that.

 

So thank you very much for the story and

keep up the good work laughing

This novel makes for an interesting read. Drags you along into this new world in an awesome way. Could not find any grammar mistakes, so tops there. The first person narrative makes for a direct view on the story, and I like how Emma narrates her own story, which brings me to the next point: the characters are fleshed out in an excellent way, and not just Emma. As someone else over here has already said: characters make a story, and there's quite a bit of potential to be found here in my humble opinion. 

Constant danger, wondering what's around every corner and hoping they'll make it: that's what makes for a strong premise in my opinion.

H.C. Mills, best of luck with your aspirations on becoming a full time writer. You've certainly got talent!

Decent so far, but 17 chapters of tutorial

I like this story so far, the MC is likeable and is a hard worker. 

The issue is I was getting bored by chapter 17. It is just a straight grind of death challenges trying to make the MC fail. Granted this is the tutorial, but the tutorial is so damn fuckin long. 

I was just getting bored near the end. Challenge -> MC gets hurt and makes it through -> MC gets stronger -> EVEN HARDER CHALLENGE! -> rinse and repeat.

The tutorial is the same over and over with slightly different challenges.

The main character is really easy to relate to, the setting is clear to picture, the rules of your world are consistent, I'd love to see this as a full length novel.

This story is an interesting take on game mechanics intruding into the world. The main character is relatable and decently fleshed out so far. The story has a solid foundation being laid each chapter in the form of worldbuilding but no major plot points have been revaeled as yet. This slow build is the only reason the character and story scores are not higher. The story simply hasn't progressed far enough yet to earn a higher score. On the other hand the grammar and style have been solid and consistent with no real issues and are fully deserving of top marks.

A unique take on the litRPG and isekai genres

Being transferred to a game like world is about as generic as you can get these days, but the Author does it in an intelligent and unique way that makes the story very engaging. I can tell a lot of thought was put into the natural laws that make up this new world to make it interesting and for a litRPG system to make sense. It has a nice balance of being alien, magical, and scientific all at once to create a unique atmosphere that I can’t recall having felt before. The author also does a good job at pacing the mysteries and knowledge revealed to us so that it’s not overwhelming yet not frustratingly slow. I highly recommend you give this story a try.

A well-written LitRPG with a few nice kinks of its own.

Refreshingly different

"I am going to die in this game like dimension" is weird. It matches next to nothing I've really read before. I've read plenty of LitRPGs and comics with Game-elements, yet this feels different. Least of all because it doesn't fit the what you usually think of "Gamers". The MC isn't overpowered (at least not as of chapter 15), things doesn't just roll for the MC, no powerlevelling or having a secret power. The MC toils and fights for every little scrap of survivability in a place that does everything it can to kill. 
The only thing it really reminds me of, is "The Tutorial Is Too Hard" but on a harder difficulty. 

 

I'm giving it 4/5 stars only because I feel like it's a bit too short at times, especially for the length between the chapters. But other than that, I really like it.
