Visual novel The Pizza Delivery Boy Who Saved the World from Penguin Pop Games and Oh, a Rock! Studios is ready to go on PlayStation. This Cross-Buy title was developed by former pizza boy Doug Rivers, and it’s a cheesy tale – pun intended – with some time travel thrown in for good measure. As you can tell from the game’s trailer and the screens in this review, The Pizza Delivery Boy Who Saved the World uses actual people as its characters, which makes every exaggerated expression feel even quirkier than if you saw a hand-drawn character portrait.
You’ll play as Doug Rivers – or whichever name you give to the main character – who works as, well, a pizza delivery boy. It’s not an easy job since his boss is a jerk, his co-workers think he’s too old for the job, and the clients he meets are… well, they’re pretty out there. One client doesn’t know their own address. Another one answers the door with, well, inappropriate attire. Then there are those clients who just take forever to order, which eats up a lot of his time.
It was all just the regular, boring life of someone in his 20s… until someone unexpected showed up in his life. He says he’s from the future. In fact, he says that he’s Doug Rivers from the future and that there’s something very important to take care of! But time travel doesn’t exist, so this can’t be real… right? But then a string of rather bizarre situations take place, and while he still needs to take care of delivering pizzas, he’s going to have to take care of other stuff if he wants to make it to the end of the week.
Trophy-wise, this visual novel has a full list with a Platinum trophy. It’s split into 2 Silver trophies and 11 Gold trophies, and while here are some missable trophies in the list, with the right settings, you can quickly dive back for another run, skip all text, and pick the right choices that had cost you some of the trophies. If you’re a trophy hunter, you can use a guide and easily unlock a Platinum trophy in a handful of minutes. Since this is a Cross-Buy title, you’ll get the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game, and each one has a separate trophy list, so you can get two Platinums for a low price.
The Pizza Delivery Boy Who Saved the World is a different type of visual novel, with real-life people as each of the characters you’ll meet – Doug Rivers included. There are some choices to make along the way, with some trophies tied to a handful of said selections, so you’ll end up replaying it to Platinum the game unless you use a guide. The Pizza Delivery Boy Who Saved the World is out as a Cross-Buy game for a low price of only $5.99, giving you access to the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions of the game.
