Goddess of Computation

by haikuotiankong

Original ONGOING Adventure Fantasy Female Lead

Doing a coding assignment last minute, Ada Newth, a computer science student, fell asleep and woke up in a different world where she was informed by the System that she was randomly selected from an infinite number of universes to be a Goddess of Computation.

The trouble is that she's barely passing her first class and now she's meant to be a Goddess? Worse, she can't understand why she's needed in this world where the technology level is about equivalent to that of Earth's Middle Ages. Clearly, most people can barely read or count and even the other gods are of no help. In fact, most of them are rather dangerous idiots. If she can't convince them to help her change the status quo, she'll just have to gather her allies and followers and make some major changes to the system.

This is an early review at only 7 chapter in.

The story is pretty much what it says in the title. The MC is an actual fantasy goddess in an isekai world. The biggest thing it has going for it is its style, which is having problems be solved using coding interfacing with the fabric of reality. Not OP, as doing amythig ridiculous like biolatomg comservayion of mass is either impossible or just beyond her admin permissions.

She is the magician at the top of the tower. Powerful, yes, impressive, yes, but also likely a facade of tricks to disquise how she uses ingenuity to appear great rather than just any comfidence or flawless strength. And woe if any see a weakness carefully hidden.

She can’t just do whatever she wants with her powers, in fact she can do little more than materialise objects transforming them from a finite supply of mass (her house, so she probably wants to keep it mostly imtact still) and mostly has to program the parameters of objects she wants tocteate from the basics. Object.Airplane isn’t in the system library after all, it’s a medieval fantasy world with a magic system limited by being mostly rational in terms of how physics work, at least as far as the MC goes.

It’s a calmer sort of story as well. The pacing isn’t rushed into action and she spends a lot of time just exploring her cloud palace snd figuring out her powers, rather than just rushing in to make trouble for herself among the natives like an ignorant foreigner.

It’s a very rational story, with the system behind the powers being very exactly explained so far, and in the case of other powerss just making total sense in hindsight. If a problem is very basic, then obviously other people have figured out a solution before, so it makes sense if there’s a solution to said problem using some other power in a way that obviously limited enough not to be too disruptive. Like being limited to just one person among many, so it still needs dealing with in a way that doesn’t trivialise the issue.

If you like magic making sense, and abilities being built up from simple principles with concrete limitations, you might want to read this book. Future chapters might lead to yet more things such as conflicts between nations and factions, powerful monsters perhaps, and most defitely problems that will be solved with ingenuity rather than just convenience or arbitrary difference in power that aren’t justified. This seems to me like a fiction that knows restraint with what it adds into the story.

Interesting story so far (chapter 8.h atm). Got no knowledge characters other than our MC yet, so cannot really go into that.

MC seems reasonable, story seems to have a plot, but there's simply not much revealed yet.

Seems like good reading, but if you're one of those binge-readers, you might want to wait a little until there is more content. On the other hand, if you enjoy waiting feverishly for the next chapter: By all means. Regular updates seem to be a thing here.

Grammar score: Some time skips from present tense to past to present. Annoying to keep track of, when you've got a story to write.
