Gamers who enjoy puzzles and story in equal measure should be able to find exactly what they’re looking for with WILL: A Wonderful World. Many PC-players are already aware of this one since it’s been on Steam for a little over a year now, but it’ll be a new experience for console owners who decide to look into it. At the very least, they’re likely to find something different from much of what they’ve played before.
WILL: A Wonderful World casts players in the role of a young girl, a god apparently, whose job it is to alter letters sent by humans appealing to her for help. Each letter is a self-contained story of sorts, and the player must decide how to change it for the better. Each story is underpinned with a request from the sender that describes what they want to happen. However, making things play out according to the sender’s wishes isn’t always going to create the best outcome, and it’s going to take some sleuthing on the part of the player to determine what is actually best for everyone involved. These stories aren’t self-contained either; changing one has the potential to affect several of the others. In other words: choose wisely.
On Steam, WILL: A Wonderful World currently enjoys a “Very Positive” rating and is available for about $15. The Switch version also sells for $15, but at the time of this writing it can be picked up for about $12. For those who’d like to experience the game on console, but don’t own a Switch, WILL: A Wonderful World is supposedly receiving a PS4 release in Japan. With any luck, it’ll do well enough on both consoles to justify a western PS4 release too.
