The Great Tower

by puddles4263

Due to unsatisfactory ratings, the social entertainment program that was humanity has been cancelled. But the studio executives of the multiverse are anything but wasteful; every human has been entered in as contestants in the popular program "The Great Tower," where challengers must fight and struggle, seeking the treasures that await at the top.

Before humanity is thrown into the meat grinder, everyone is given a chance to sell parts of themselves in exchange for a little boost. One young man seizes this chance, selling everything. Even his humanity.

Nameless, Raceless, and without any clear memory of the past, he is thrown into the bottom level of the tower, with one goal. Survival.

Like a cup of coffee brewed with Red Bull...

...this story kept me shockingly eager to turn the next "page."

Ok... that awful series called hunger games?  Absolute rubbish.

 

This is how games of death and survival are supposed to be written.  And the author actually has a decent sense of grammar and grasp of English which helps.

 

I've enjoyed each part of the story so far (up to day 30 currently).  

The random sometimes lighthearted nature of the world and its controllers combines with the seriousness of a world so focused on death, somehow balance each other.

I've no complaints and heavily recommend this story to anyone up for a fun read filled with a few laughs, great fight scenes, and illuminating side-stories that greatly enhance the larger picture and world details.

I have always loved OP main characters, and this story has one of the most OP main characters so far. The author does a nice job balancing this by making other characters equally strong so that there is always excitement to be had. Lastly, the crazy plot is very enjoyable to read and is very unpredictable most of the time.

If you are looking for something to pass time, start this story. Once you start you cant stop, i read all the way up to day 29 in one sitting, taking up a good chunk of my day lol. the characters have great stories, and there is an extreme amount of detail. Hell, the author put in the rules of a card game, dont know if it was original or not, but if it is hot damn that must have taken forever, and if it wasnt, great immersion technique. Highly reccomend this story to everyone.

(Day 22)

 

If i had to describe the story i would say tower of druaga meets dungeonbuilder meets gam3. Its more of a fantasy story, though given the existence of robotic races i am sure sci-fi should exist too.

The author took all the good parts from stories you have read so far and combined them, with his pretty good style into something fresh and interesting.

 

style: The author finds the right style to adress the audience most of the time. only his second self sometimes falls out of the reading flow, but given the circumstances this might actually be intentional and still kinda fits.

There are a couple of POV changes that seemed redundant to me, at certain points, that being said however, it does not detract from the story.

 

Story: The author understands to keep the plot due to his frequent changes fresh and engaging. Over are the times where you read chapter after chapter after chapter about someone sitting in a room training. Yes the MC levels up, but as soon as the reader thinks, 'ok now i got it, he will just climb the tower' the whole story morphs into something different again.

 

The author also rasies a lot of interesting flaggs, however by the time of this writing its impossible to say how well they will turn out.

 

one negative thing in this section deserve mention though. The 'i give up my memory'-thing actually did lead to some points in the story that broke my immersion, when the mc kinda remembers but nor really and still knows stuff about his homeworld, for example what a computer is and how it works.

 

Gramar: In my opinion gramar is good, but then again i am hardly an expert on it.

 

characters: Characters are good, until now i did feel the motivations of all characters that were introduced (with the exception of the MC). most of those characters also grow on you. and the best part the author already killed a resonably important sidecharacter, so good on you author for not fearing to get rid of some characters. (be it by not mentioning them again or killing them off).

 

as for the MC, well he lost his memory and with it a big part of his ethical values. so he is more or less a blank slate. here again though, it has not been made too clear what his character really is. Is he only intersted in his wellbeing? Is the MC intersted in saving someone or something? if you read the earliest chapters it seems the MC does not give a damn about anyone. however it seems this changes with time. so probs to the author for making the evolution in such small increments that i wonder if its actually intentional or only an oversight.

Love the novel so far

I love it definitely capable of reaching the top on this site with more chapters. I don't really understand how the whole tower thing works considering how he can get so high up (top 16?) when he's so weak compared to races that can raise humanity like pets. My only guess is that this top 16 is part of maybe the first tower out of many and when he gets to the top he'll join tower nr 2 or floor 2 maybe? I might have missed important information since i have a tendency to not want to waste time with info dumps etc.
