Action-adventure games have largely become a homogenous collection of games that use the same gameplay formula in different locations. While many of these games look and feel the same, World’s End Club dares to be different, even weird.
World’s End Club is developed and published by IzanagiGames and was created by a group of creators with an astonishing pedigree: Zero Escape’s Kotaro Uchikoshi, and Danganronpa’s Kazutaka Kodaka. If those names and the games they are responsible for are enough to get you excited for World’s End Club, or if you just want a fresh action-adventure game experience, then here is everything you need to know about the game.
Unique Gameplay and Perspective
World’s End Club takes its players back to the golden days of gaming by presenting its gameplay entirely in a 2D side-scrolling manner. This style of game allows for simple controls that are accessible to gamers of all ages, while not feeling too “dumbed-down” for veteran gamers.
As you side scroll through gorgeously designed and animated stages, you will engage in unique puzzle-action gameplay that will test your mind and gaming skills simultaneously. Pay careful attention to environmental clues as you look for evidence that will help you get through to the next stage with even more challenging puzzles.
Created By A “Dream Team”
No one would blame you if you’ve never heard of either Danganronpa or the Zero Escape series, but the rabid fans of those games know that having one of these people’s names on a project is a good thing, but having both of them at the same time is a dream come true. Kotaro Uchikoshi is the creator of Zero Escape, a visual novel series of “escape room” style games that are known for their incredible stories and mind-bending puzzles.
Kazutaka Kodaka is affiliated with Danganronpa, another visual novel-style game where a colorful cast of characters get to know each other, and then take each other to court to try to find a serial killer that is picking them off one by one. These incredible minds combine to make the World’s End Club a wholly unique experience that mixes the best parts of each of the previously mentioned series.
Memorable Characters and Locations
Like both Danganronpa and Zero Escape, World’s End Club is carried on the backs of its 12 awesome characters, who each have a unique personality, style, and motivation in the game’s events. You’ll organically get to know each character just through dialogue and cutscenes, and before you know it you’ll be completely endeared to every member of the cast.
The field trip these cool kids go on will take them to instantly recognizable locations all over Japan, and the locations have been rendered within the game as faithfully as possible. With the dedication to detail seen throughout the rest of the game, Japan is just as much a character as any of the 12 people.
