In an endless air ocean of an alien world, small lonesome plots of land float above the abyss. But sometimes approach each other, and lands which have never met before, reveal their secrets.

Wild Island Quest is a story driven game, with alternate choices and endings.

The story isn't very strong and is very similar to the choice books growing up as a child (Tom Hanks and the movie BIG lying about those digital choice comics!)

Also the images chosen look like the graphic renderings of the 3dFx Voodoo 2, loving the scene in the white meadows obtaining the “Sweet Death” achievement and the haunting stare on the kids faces that are the stuff of nightmares!

Overall it feels like I have time travelled, yet the release was 2015, the game/story isn't enjoyable, and despite numerous choices and apparent effort, it just doesn't do anything for me. Whilst the cheap price tag, it still would be better if it was found in a bundle.

Where do I even begin with this game... Wild Island Quest follows the story of a group of guys who are going from their home island (Mech-City Island) to Wild Island while it's on a rare pass-by. While you can go it alone, you can also gather up your friends to go with you. What choices you make determine how many of your friends you can recruit (I did the path with recruiting Conan only).

Interesting idea, right? That's what got me initially interested. Unfortunately, everything goes wrong in Wild Island Quest quite fast. If you're able to even follow the story, you'll find a a lot of English mistakes in terms of grammar and odd word choices. This pretty much tells you that this was translated with a Russian to English dictionary and in quite a few places it seemed they didn't quite know which word to use so they just picked a random one. Of course, this "random one" makes very little sense to a native English speaker, and in several cases I actually had to go search up words that were used to try and figure out what word/meaning they were going for.

The horrendous English coupled with the pretty poor graphics (the models just look awful) make Wild Island Quest fall very short of what it could have been. As it stands, unless some drastic improvements are made, this game gets a gigantic pass. There are better visual novels/choose your own adventures out there. Oh and no, there isn't really a "combat system". You just choose if you were lucky or unlucky in an outcome.

Easy Game to 100% for achievements if you want to boost the amount of games you have 100%. Lots of keys are floating around, would recommend to just grab one if you want to actually play the game. If you dont like the gameplay at all the trading cards can help you feel better after getting the game for free.

While I did find the storyline of this game interseting, if I were to be looking around for a story game to puchase this would *not* be it. Poor translation (this game was originally in Russian) breaks up the immersion just a little too much >:

Recommended IF YOU GET IT FREE. Don't pay money for this! There are plenty of giveaways!

In Wild Island Quest, you play as a boy who lives on a floating island with his friends, whom each have different skills. In the game, another island has collided with your island, and when your dog runs onto the new island, you chase after him and get lost in the jungle. Depending on the choices you make, you will get different endings.

Pros
+Multiple endings based on choices - This adds some extra replayability to the game.
+Soundtrack - I enjoyed the music in this game, even if there wasn't very much of it.
+Concept - The concept was good, though the execution was poor.

Cons
-Too short - It will take you a maximum of 15 minutes to beat this game for the first time. Any playthroughs afterwards will be a breeze since you'll already know the correct choices to progress.
-Graphically terrible - Just a glance at this game will show you that very little of the budget was spent on how the game would look. The humans are frankly terrifying and the rest is mediocre at best.
-Poor storytelling - Some parts of the plot seem either very forced or simply make no sense. For example, in the very beginning of the game, you see your dog in your yard, but by the time you get to the place where you will watch the island, he's somehow raced all the way over there without you noticing and randomly jumps onto Wild Island for seemingly no reason. The ening makes even less sense, but I'll let you see for yourself.
-Repetitive - Past a certain point, it becomes very repetitive trying to get all the achievements and trying out the different options. You have to click through the same dialogue over and over again just for some slight variation on what happened in your previous playthrough. Most of the time, there are a few "wrong" choices that lead to death and one "right" choice that lets you progress. Going with different friends or using different items had very little impact on the game in the long run.

If you got this game in a giveaway, then yeah, go ahead and play it. The game's short and only takes about 10 minutes to beat, and it's not horrible. But don't consider spending even a penny on this, it's just not worth the $2. Go buy a better game instead.

Don't buy this game... why?
"Unique picture to every location" from the store page is kinda not true at all some locations repeat.
In the game it has a themes tab in the settings you can’t use any of the themes. (i'm assuming the game is made in a game maker tool). if you sift tab into the steam overlay it will get stuck there so youll need to restart the game (developer said it was fixed in 1.03 Build). when you do a playthrough and chose a specific path you can just get stuck in a infinite loop.
in the opening scene of the game it says it has a simple combat system… there's no combat system you will get the option to do one thing or the other.
in the trailer it shows some sort of animation in the game yet again there is non.
the images on the store page is literally what the game is.

How far would you go to save your pup?

TL;DR:

A short yet charming indie visual novel with different endings depending on what options you choose. The achievements are exceptionally easy, which should just take under an hour to complete. The story itself isn't particularly memorable, but has an intresting concept. Despite this the price isn't worth it, not even for the achievements or card drops. Playing the game will give you 3/5 card drops.

Review:

"You're approaching the edge of the island as the "Wild Island" floats closer, now only a jump away. Your friends beckon you to come over, before the opportunity is stolen from you. Taking a deep breath, you jump -"
Suddenly you wake up, and here is where the novel starts. Today is finally the day you will be able to see explore the Wild Island, a dream you've had for years now. But first, you must prepare yourself. This is where the first options are given to you, who and what you take etc. After playing through the game three times, it doesn't really matter who you take with you, as the ending is usually the same: You either complete your objective or die in the process. The novel however does have checkpoints, so if you die you won't have to begin again from the start. The most important thing that matters is your Luck, which is rolled with a dice at the very begining off the game. Fortunately you can re-roll if you're not satisfied with the score. This determines if the choice you chose will succeed or fail, for example lighting a fire or combat.

Something you'll notice right off the bat is a lot of translation errors, as the story was orginally in russian. However this doesn't take away from the overall feeling of the game. Graphically it looks decent, although there was some scenes where a stock photo was used as the background, which does take away from the immersion of the game. The audio is quite pleasing, and can be relaxing at times when accompanied by naturistic sounds.

Overall this game could have been a great VN, if more effort was put in to the overall story. Apart from this everything is practically fine, but if you're looking for a VN with beautiful graphics/art and great audio, this VN isn't for you.

If you like my review, any feedback is appreciated and if you would like to see more reviews from me in the future, feel free to follow me!

3.3/10 - Visual Novel on the Lower End of the Spectrum.

I didn't hate this game but it's definitely of lower quality in both depth of story and graphics. You can complete this game rather quickly and 100% the game in an hour or two. The graphics have a wide range of polish; the city was really well done... the "Wild Island" floating looked like garbage. Odd photos added into the game to pay tribute to its Russian Comrade creators.

Once in a generation the wild floating island orbits close to the mainland. While witnessing this majestic your poor pup jumps the distance and vanishes into the woods of Wild Island. You have no choice but to follow and retrieve your dog at any cost...

Worth $0.50-2. I'd only grab on HEAVY discount. If you are new to Visual Novels please don't play this first.

This is not a GOOD game, at all. It's a Choose Your Own Adventure broken down to its core, but the art is crap and story not particularly engaging (nothing really happens). Check some screenshots of the game and you'll immediately understand the overall quality you're dealing with for the product.

Yet still, it is kind of charming in a weird way. I guess what I mean is, I had fun with it despite it not being a good game. Buy this for a dollar or grab it in a bundle or something, and it's worth the TIME you'll spend on it (less than an hour) just potentially not the MONEY (if you don't buy it at 75%+ off!)

Yep the game is bad. I don't think you should play this.
There are a lot of better Visual Novel game to play (especially the anime one).
But if you come for the achievement. This one got an easy 100% achievement.

This is not a good game, even for a small indie developer. I do recognize, however, their effort to do something different. Here are my thoughts:

Pros

- Nice enough scenarios (for a visual novel)
- Some cool sound effects
- Bizarre scenes that make you laugh

Cons

- Badly translated, with many glaring grammar and word-choice issues
- Weird luck system that does not add anything to the game
- Too short
- Not much content, even if you choose different paths

Given a decent proofreading service and using criticism to do something better, this game could be half-decent. As it is, now, it may be a fun litle ride, but not something worth any money, so I have to give it a thumbs down.

Note: I played this game a couple of times to see different paths/endings, but most of my time in the game (more than 3 hours) was iddling it for cards
