Informazioni sul gioco

From the author of Spice and Wolf, Isuna Hasekura, comes WORLD END ECONOMiCA. The opening video features music by Kishida Kyoudan & The Akeboshi Rockets, known for the opening songs for High School of the Dead and Strike the Blood.

A three part visual novel set in the far future on the moon, 16 years after humans have begun to colonize it. A young boy named Haru has been chasing his wildest dream. His dream is to stand where no man has stood before, and in order to do so he needs capital, a ludicrous amount of capital. What better place to get that amount of capital by using the stock market? There are two key rules that govern the stock market.

  • The first rule: Never take a loss.
  • The second rule: Never forget the first.

Only those who follow these rules are able to obtain enormous wealth...

This is Italian review. Sorry, I don't think I have the ability to write a english review.

-

Delle poche ore che ho giocato, più della metà mi sento di averle buttate al vento a causa di personaggi che fanno davvero incazzare.
Ho ragequittato il gioco ben due volte in occasione di scenate provocate dalla co-protagonista, un personaggio sicuramente problematico, ma che spesso e volentieri agisce in modo troppo imprevedibile.
Non aiuta nemmeno il protagonista, un impulsivo ragazzino che pensa una cosa e ne dice un’altra, contribuendo in un giro di incomprensioni che porteranno a scene più che patetiche.
Anche i personaggi secondari ci mettono il loro impegno per dare fastidio.
Come potete intuire, la trama presenta un eccessiva spinta verso la moralità e il giusto o sbagliato, il tutto condito da un ‘Fanservice Cristiano’.
A me personalmente ha dato parecchio fastidio vedere azioni stupide di personaggi finire bene perché essi hanno avuto fede in Dio, mentre le azioni del protagonista finire male perché lavora coi soldi.
Questa eccessiva morale, spesso e volentieri, mette il protagonista in situazioni umilianti per motivi futili: in un episodio viene picchiato dalla co-protagonista che gli ferisce il ginocchio solo perché ha voluto pagare la sua parte di un acquisto.
I personaggi sono dei pazzi instabili e imprevedibili, che fanno venire voglia di essere presi a pugni.
Caratterialmente sono pesanti ed eccessivamente caricaturali e questo incide molto, forse troppo, all’interno di una Visual Novel.
Probabilmente giocherò anche i seguiti così da riuscire a farvi decidere se entrare nel mondo di World End Economica oppure puntare ad altri titoli.
Per ora il mio consiglio è quello di rimanere in attesa.

This is probably the best Visual Novel (VN) on Steam, it's about a really good storyline, not kawaii and moe things, also it has very nice calming soundtrack that helps concentrate reading it. It's about a guy who is very good at stock trades, who lives in more future time than we, when humanity achieved fully reaching the Moon and even made city there that uses Solar power with Solar Panels to maintain itself, and it located inside a dome where even rain is simulated, so there lives our protagonist.

This VN is written by Isuna Hasekura the writer of Spice & Wolf series, there is even anime and manga of it besides more than 11 books. Because of this you can see World End Economica is written more professionally than other VNs, she describes small details very well, engages different moments with explanations of secondary things that gives a more deep feel to the story, characters and the surrounding world of the City in the Moon, I also really like the characters personality, the Moon and their citizens and different places there are described in multiple details making you feel more the world of the story.

I totally recommend getting World End Economica, if you like VNs with good more serious stories where even the anime style is a secondary thing, anime style is nice it gives characters their personality and look, but it doesn't really affect the actual story, so even if you are not into anime you would probably still like it, Isuna Hasekura is a really good writer, she won't disappoint you.

WORLD END ECONOMiCA episode.01 is a VN where there are no choices for the reader to make. It is pretty long considering how it is just a third of the full story. It is written by the same author who wrote Spice and Wolf. I would recommend having a basic knowledge of stocks and margin trading to fully enjoy the story, since most of the exciting parts are about stock trading.

Story: The story is well written. It is about a boy who runs away from home and makes a living by trading stocks. At times, I feel the story really dragged on, and could be condensed. I really liked the twist at the end. I have studied a lot of economics, finance, statistics, mathematics and computer science, so I thought the story was pretty amazing since it incorporated a lot of material I had learned into a plot. But without basic knowledge of stocks or an interest in economics, you probably will not undestand or be interested in the most exciting parts of the plot and the plot is pretty dull without those components. Overall I would rate the plot 8.5/10.

Characters: The characters differed from the stereotypical characters in most Anime/VN and were well developed. Nothing too special about them though. I would rate the characters 7/10

Music: The music was okay. Better than a lot of other games. A few catchy tunes. I would rate it 7.5/10.

Artwork: The artwork was nice. But there were still a lot of scenes that had black/blank backgrounds and lots of scenes where I feel the background should be updated to different one. Overall, I would rate the artwork 6.5/10 since there were too many scenes with black backgrounds (no artwork) and too many reused backgrounds.

Overall: I would rate it 8/10. The story was great. There are several typos, and too many black backgrounds and reused to backgrounds which took away from my enjoyment.

Well that..... was a interesting VN to read.

Pros
  • Beginning is slow (almost fell asleep a few times) but it pays off towards the end.
  • Big emphasis on economics and the stock market (felt like having an Economics 101 crash course).
  • Characters are interesting enough to keep the reader interested.
  • Was not expecting that type of ending.
  • The music is relaxing and nice to listen to.

Cons
  • A few written mistakes here and there but it is no big deal.
  • Could of used a bit more background art in some scenes.

This will probably make me wanna watch or read Spice and Wolf.

7.5/10

I had high expectation because Isuna Hasekura's previous work, Spice and Wolf, is a masterpiece. Yet I wasn't disappointed.

This non-interactive visual novel is a well written story that goes in-depth to the investment industry in a fictional futuristic world. The minute details of currency manipulation is the same quality you might have seen in Spice and Wolf series. I can easily recommend WORLD END ECONOMiCA to the fans of Isuna Hasekura's style and to those who aren't afraid of "anime romance/drama". Haters probably grasp my point?

As of now, episode 1 and 2 of this visual novel are translated in English. Episode 3 will be coming eventually, but I do not know whether there's any info about the release date yet. I'm avid to read it as soon as it's out.
