Earlier this year, Jaleco asked users to help design an upcoming RPG. The project was tentatively called The: RPG and they weren’t even sure the game would come out. In July, the game got a name, WiZman’s World, and an ASCII cat from popular message board 2ch. But, no system.
Finally, Jaleco announced they are making WiZman’s World for the Nintendo DS. (Thanks for the tip Nocturnal!!) Yeah, for more portable RPGs? So far, WiZman’s World’s most original feature is its anima fusion system where you create homunculi that look like fairies.
After accepting the 2ch cat as a monster Jaleco hasn’t asked the public for any more help. Probably, a wise decision, but I would rather see an eccentric game made by a million insane internet “chefs” than a bland one.
