Humanity has told countless tales.

Joy, sadness, anger, deep emotion.
Stories stir our feelings, and capture our fancy.

Still, these are but the thoughts of passers-by.

But what if the characters of our story have “intentions”? And to them, are we god-like beings for bringing their tales into the world?

Our world has changed.
Dole out punishment of upon the realm of the gods.

In Re:Creators everybody becomes a Creator.
