Kei Sazane, also the author of the light novel series “Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World” (“Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjō, Arui wa Sekai ga Hajimaru Seisen“), is the one who writes this story published by Kadokawa since January 2021, and to date has 6 compilation volumes with illustrations by Toiro Tomose. As we mentioned before, the light novels were also adapted into a manga in the Comic Alive magazine, from the publisher Media Factory, illustrated by the talented Kapiko Toriumi, currently being available in the Japanese market, with 2 compilation volumes published to date.


God’s Game We Play” is a visual novel that follows the story of Akihiko, a young man who lives an ordinary life until one day he encounters a mysterious application on his phone. The application invites him to participate in a divine game, where he must compete against other players to win the favor of the gods and obtain supernatural powers. As Akihiko delves into the game, he discovers that it is not just a simple entertainment, but is intrinsically linked to his past and the fate of the world.

 Throughout his journey, Akihiko encounters various characters, each with their own motivations and secrets. Some become allies, while others reveal themselves as adversaries in the struggle for divine power. As he progresses in the game, Akihiko must face increasingly difficult challenges, make complex moral decisions, and uncover the truth behind the divine game. At the core of “God’s Game We Play,” the narrative delves into deep issues such as individual autonomy, ethics, and the concept of the divine, as Akihiko strives to find his purpose in a universe where deities manipulate the fate of human beings.

If we hadn’t given you enough reasons to keep an eye on this project in our previous post about it, without a doubt now we have. “God’s Game We Play” seems to have everything it takes to captivate us from the beginning, and the best part is that it won’t be long before we can verify that! Don’t you think? Now please leave us in the comments your opinion about this proposal, and as you know, we will be reading! 🙂
