When God Is Bored He Builds New Worlds… Mine Was Next, Unfortunately...Bookmark here

WELCOME TO A NONSENSICAL PROLOGUE TO VERSE + ZERO

RaitoBookmark here

I never expected God Himself to be a fan of mine.Bookmark here

When I was creating my game I never had the thought it would be popular honestly. Let alone the fact that I would be having the Holy Maker and His Angels become obsessed with it.Bookmark here

It was just a game where you summoned mythological warriors and controlled them, and fought other people online. I mean, there was more to do, but it wasn't anything special.Bookmark here

It was earlier that day that I found out any of this...Bookmark here

I suddenly found myself in some sort of otherworldly realm. I had just finished making myself an excellent breakfast and had found the time to sit at my desk and relax when it happened of all things...Bookmark here

An angelic girl appeared before me.Bookmark here

She dressed in a long white t-shirt which wasn't exactly how I pictured a holy Angel to dress. She hovered about, flapping her feathery wings. She wore no pants only white undies, which I deduced by the amount of leg revealed to me. I could admittedly see a lot from my position below her.Bookmark here

Count to think of it, we dressed quite similar. Perhaps we both were lazy NEETs who played games in our pajamas all day.Bookmark here

Angel:Bookmark here

"Nice hairy legs, Raito-san...! But, didn't you wear those same pair of black underwear yesterday?"Bookmark here

Those were the Angel's first words to me.Bookmark here

I could tell this was going to be a bizarre experience for me from here on.Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"...? I'm not dead, am I??"Bookmark here

Angel:Bookmark here

"Sorry about your cereal. I realize it'll get soggy if it just sits there on your desk but I needed your help~"Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"..."Bookmark here

Angel:Bookmark here

"It's not like I really interrupted anything anyways. It's not like you do much."Bookmark here

Now I was here with a spoon in my hand and an angelic being chastising me.Bookmark here

I had to be dead. This must be hell. I'm forever stuck in this room with her. The constant fear of my cereal getting soggier by the minute was surely going to drive me insane.Bookmark here

But, she did make it sound like she was only borrowing me. If that was the case, I hope this was only a quick question or two. I hope I wasn't trapped in a real-life isekai.Bookmark here

This is how most of them start off after all. A moment of confusion, some Almighty figure oppressing you, then banished to some fantasy land for the rest of your life.Bookmark here

It checks all of the boxes.Bookmark here

Damn. As fun as an Isekai adventure sounds, I'll pass on it. You see, I'm rich now back home. My game is widely successful and it's even got its own manga and anime series releasing soon based on the light novels. I'm going to be able to sit back and do absolutely nothing soon! Just like I used to, but this time with lots of money.Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"Who are you?"Bookmark here

I questioned with my spoon in my mouth.Bookmark here

Angel:Bookmark here

"Whoops, I should probably do a proper introduction~~"Bookmark here

The Angel cleared her throat.Bookmark here

Angel:Bookmark here

"My name is Serenity. I'm an Angel and the Overseer of your island region. I know this might be a lot to take in but we've summoned you for a particular reason, okay~~"Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"What is it?"Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"You know the online game that you developed on your own? God Game Royale?"Bookmark here

I nodded my head.Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"I know a little about it."Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"Well, I've been watching you play it for months straight now and I started playing too, but I can't beat my coworkers, no matter how many times I try."Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

Wait?! You play GGR?!"Bookmark here

The Angel looked embarrassed.Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"I need your help, Raito-san."Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"You're telling me Angels play video games?"Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"Yep. What else is there to do up here? It's boring. There's no scenery and everyone is too busy getting along. Games are the only way we Angels ever get to release our anger! Who do you think is yelling at you on the mic!"Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"Usually some Russian guy, if it's on PC. If I'm playing on a console it's usually an angry twelve-year-old. Are you telling me those are..."Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"Yep. Those two were Angels! Artyom loves games!"

Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"Hmm, alright. .. So what did you need help with? Beating your coworkers, you said?"Bookmark here

The Angel nodded her head.Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"Which summons do you main?"Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"I like to use Enyo..."Bookmark here

I choked on her reply, coughing loudly.Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"Enyo?! Enyo damages herself with her own special moves. She's like Pichu before they made him good. No wonder you've never won a game. For starters, you should choose Ares, who is an all-around better Slayer-class summon."Bookmark here

The Angel giggled.Bookmark here

I had accidentally exposed my nerdiness.Bookmark here

Damn.Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"But, I'm good with Enyo."Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"It doesn't sound like your good at all if you can't beat any of your coworkers."Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"Enyo is the best, okay! I'm good with her!"Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"No one's good with Enyo! So there, you don't need my help anymore. Just pick a different summon and try someone new. Now can you send me back home? This place is making me uncomfortable. It's like I’m dead and waiting to be judged on my past life."Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"Well, you see. At first, it was only me playing the game but it soon spread to the other Angels. Now every Angel here plays God Game Royale... erm, even the Almighty himself."Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"The Lord plays God Game Royale?! I can't picture God playing video games honestly. I bet he wins every time, doesn't he?! "Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"Not only does he play obsessively --which is why he has no time for prayers anymore-- but because of our complete obsession with the game at the office, so to speak, we've decided we needed to experience that world for real."Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"Uh, what?....did you just say?..."Bookmark here

[Did she just say what I think she said. I don't like where this is going.]Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"We've recreated your game for realsies!Bookmark here

Isn't that exciting?!"Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"No! That's horrifying!"Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"Aw, man. I thought you'd be excited! It's your world after all! Usually, the Almighty creates movie and anime worlds. He doesn't normally do it for this genre! It's awesome!"Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"Seriously cancel those plans! That's a terrible idea! Our world is fine, we don't want to experience God Game Royale in real life! I came up with most of the game mechanics when I was sleep-deprived! I stayed awake for seven days working on terrible world-building. The elves weren't sexy enough! I had to dedicate myself to it! Because of this, the rest of the world isn't even well made or thought out! Don't do it! I stole most of my characters from my favourite games and shows even! It's a bad idea!"Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"Well, it's too late! The Almighty is already too excited to see his new isekai in action. Since you are often at the top of the leaderboard in your own game we would like to get your opinion on it. Playing your own game competitively is pretty unfair by the way! It's like when the Almighty's Son played Earth Isekai and used all those cheat codes. Anyways, we want to make sure the world meets with your expectations, of course!"Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"Great..."Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"It is! Isn't it?"Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"No! No, it's not!"Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"One last thing..."Bookmark here

I let out a deep sigh.Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"What is it?"Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"The Almighty asks if you have any requests before we send you to this domain. Surely, you'll want an advantageous bonus, which we shouldn't allow... You are the Holy Maker of this world after all. What item do you want? Is it a powerful memento? Or maybe a fancy dinner? Any wish is fine."Bookmark here

(Well, I already know not to take her with me. I already know the outcome of an event like that happening.)Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"Fancy dinner? You're making this sound like my last meal! Am I going to die down there?"Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"I mean, probably. Everybody does."Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"Jesus, Serenity."Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"You want your legendary wish to be Jesus? He would probably enjoy exploring this world with you, actually. I'll text him."Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"Wait, what?! No, it was only an expression! Stop texting him! That's not the legendary wish I want!"Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"Oh. He just replied. He sounds stoked man!... I'm going to have to tell him you said no now..."Bookmark here

(It's actually pretty hilarious she has Jesus on speed dial, but maaann this Angel was dumb in the head. How she became an Overseer was beyond me.)Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"Oh, by the way. Angels read thoughts. Most prayers are done internally as a matter of fact!! So stop it, you dummy!Bookmark here

I'm just glad I'm not some pervert weirdo like you, who lewds his own video game characters. That's weird, dude!"Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"You're being lewd right now! We're literally having a conversation in our underwear."Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"What's weird about that? Who's got time to get dressed?"Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"You're just as perverted as me I bet."Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"I'm pure as a leaf, you NEET."Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"Pure as a leaf is not an expression. No one says that."Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"They do in Heaven!!"Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"So which magic thingy was it again? The Almighty told me to give you at least one super cool power or item before I let you leave. It can literally be anything. Your wish is my command. We don't care what you pick, because it'll be entertaining either way. You sure you don't want to take Jesus? He's a wizard at RPGs. Literally, Jesus is the best in the office, besides you know who -- the Big Cheese."Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"This will be a very quick mission! I promise! Just go down to the new world and make sure it meets with your expectations!"Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"I have a question first. Are there game-like rules in this world?Bookmark here

Like server-side inventories, statistics and skill levels and level ups?"Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"I dunno, I can't remember. That's not really my department."Bookmark here

I was going to request to be an Admin. That would give me access to all of the overpowered abilities and impenetrable invulnerability. But, it could also be a waste of a wish if this world goes by real world rules. I'd end up just being a normal guy with a useless Admin badge.Bookmark here

Maybe if I requested access to my dev room, assuming they recreated my game's world completely. I could just nab all of my secret developer gear from there and use that. There was an item there that would even allow me to open portals to return back.Bookmark here

Wait, I'll just ask for the portal item.Bookmark here

From there, I'll teleport in.Bookmark here

I'll grab all the gear one by one...Bookmark here

As much as I can carry and I'll store it in ----Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"---- Eh, stop trying to form some complicated plot in your head and just ask me for the World-Edit ability. You'll be able to do what you need with it."Bookmark here

Shit, I keep forgetting she can read my thoughts.Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"Yeah, sure. I'll go with that, I guess."Bookmark here

The Angel wiggled her wings and hovered down to my level and by pressing her finger on my nose, she shrunk me down in size. She was now holding me in her hand like a little chess pawn.Bookmark here

The world began to generate around us. From my position on top of her palm, I could see the entire map of the familiar world I've spent thousands of hours creating appear before my eyes in pristine graphics.Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"It looks like there are people down there already. Yeah, there's definitely people! Are they NPCs?"Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"Oh. Well, we didn't just generate the world now. We just loaded it up for the first time on my server. Those are players from other worlds. Most of them are probably from Earth Isekai."Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"How long has this world existed?!"Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"This save file? I mean, I dunno. Angels don't perceive time the same as humans. Awhile I guess. I mean, they are still very much in their early days. But, so are Earth Isekai humans as a matter of fact. A few thousand more years and Earth Isekai might actually be a fun game. It's too similar to an RTS right now for me. Tense country border patrol simulators aren't my kind of game. I think even the Almighty got bored of it."Bookmark here

I could hear the sounds of a phone vibrating...Bookmark here

HHHHHHHH....!Bookmark here

HHHHHHH...!Bookmark here

HHH...!Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"One moment here... I'm getting a call!"Bookmark here

Serenity dropped me down to the world below. I flailed to and fro through the air.Bookmark here

I descended down towards the ground, doing somersaults on my way down. The wind tried to pull off my boxers, so I held them tightly in place.Bookmark here

I soon collided with the ground, creating a perfectly sized indent of my body in the grassy field below.Bookmark here

[Well, I'm surprised that didn't kill me.]Bookmark here

Serenity appeared above my crater hole, which felt like my personally dug grave. She had a dumb smirk across her face. Serenity was back to her regular size-- back to her natural short stature.Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"Welcome to God Game Royale, Summoner!"Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"Ugghh... She’s using the intro line to my game... It sounds so cheezy when she says it..."Bookmark here

Serenity flicked me a small aluminium pin which I caught in my hand.Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"There's your Admin badge! Now go explore the new world and make sure it meets with your expectations!"Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"Well, my expectations are extremely low, so from that overhead view I seen I'd say it looks great. You guys knocked it out of the park. Great work team. Now I’m done right?"Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"I'll pull you out when you've completed your mission!"Bookmark here

Raito:Bookmark here

"It's still pretty unclear what that mission is!"Bookmark here

Serenity:Bookmark here

"Make sure to have fun! Bye bye now, sexy Raito-san!"Bookmark here

I think I'm going to cry.Bookmark here

Why did this happen now!Bookmark here

It should have happened when I was poor and doing nothing, not when I finally made a name for myself and had money!Bookmark here

What a cruel, cruel world!Bookmark here
