About This Game

Welcome to Hope
Everyone here wears the same outfit, lives the same repetitive routine, and is “happy”!

Name of The Will is a dark atmospheric 2D side-scroller set in a surreptitious futuristic world resembling Hong Kong.

One day, you wake up in a smiley headset at Hope, a residential building full of preposterous ordinances and neighbors with utter positivity. Something is weird in here, and you are to disclose the secret behind it. Dodge surreptitious governors and establish a rapport with the neighbors who monitor you. The price of truth might be intimidating. Your friendship, integrity and morality are on the list to sacrifice. On the journey of the truth pursuit, an absurd history begins to unfold itself…

Be prepared for a story-rich adventure in Name of The Will!

Atmospheric hand-drawn art and original music

The vividly hand-drawn 2D side-scroller will guide you through the oppressive and eerily harmonious world. Our original cell animations and sounds are mixed with the often unnoticed, yet ubiquitous elements in Hong Kong, with a romantic and futuristic appeal. Get ready to immerse yourself in Name of The Will!

Stealthy detective

As you wander around Hope, the Benevolent Father may surprise you out of nowhere. Your fitful memories will gradually help you acquire skills to maneuver around them and steal things from their pocket. Warning: you are putting yourself at risk of a fatal penalty when caught.

A puzzling narrative

Numerous challenging puzzles are awaiting you in this cheerful denial world. You don’t want to miss any trivial clue you obtain from venturing out at Hope and talking to your neighbors. The more information you accumulate about your past, the darker and more brutal world it will turn into.

Fates on your hand

Every neighbor has their unique personality and story. Befriend them (or not) through conversations, and they may help you (or trap you) down the road. As you make your way to one of the four endings, countless dilemmas and tough decisions present themselves through your journey. What appears to be a simple choice can lead to irreversible changes to your neighbors’ and your fate.
