"Do not be fooled, child, for a monster chained is still a monster."

In a world where djinn are slaves and humans their masters, can two souls drawn together from opposite sides of the divide truly find happiness? Can they find freedom?

Ran was found wandering the desert, and brought to human civilization to begin his new life as a slave. As an albino djinn, he is incredibly valuable. As a half-wild rebel, he is extremely dangerous.

You are the niece of an important nobleman and have lived a sheltered existence. Your whole life, you have never truly questioned the way things are.

That is about to change.

Wilder: Ran's Story is the first story in the Wilder collection, a series of visual novels featuring a female protagonist, hundreds of choices, two endings, and a romance that breaks all the rules.

This game contains instances of violence, strong language, scenes of a sexual nature, and some discussion of physical and sexual abuse. Player discretion advised.

The description of sexual content can be altered via an in-game toggle to be either explicit or non-explicit.

So how many routes are available now? Im interested with the other Djinns xD

So far only Ran's route has been released. Bahadur is next followed by Amir then Royo and then Jamal I believe, but no release date for any of them. Here's the forum if you're interested (has a progress report and info on the routes): https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?t=35528

Hope that helped, I'm really looking forward to the other routes as well. (^-^)

Hi, for some reason I can't send a mail so I'll just be writing here. The game won't start... Up pops a message that says: Could not execute , then it point to where Wilder_Ran.exe is supposed to be  and says: Is it missing?

Hi there. This is a (sadly) not uncommon problem that some people have with games made in Ren'Py. 

Usually it is the user's antivirus program falsely assuming the .exe is malicious and deleting it when you extract the files from the .zip. I'd suggest that you tinker with your antivirus so that it understands the .exe file is not malicious, or else disable it just until you've extracted the files from the .zip.

It works! Hallelujah, and thanks a lot for the help ^^

You're welcome! :-) I hope you enjoy!

love the game just wondering if there's another one coming out soon, and if so, do you have any idea when

Thanks! Another route is upcoming. No release date (to avoid any more disappointment).

This is an absolutely fantastic game! There were so many moments where I thought "I hope this will happen", and then it did. And I agree with another commenter about being able to play the protag's personality like I wanted to, without ever feeling like I was risking the good ending for it. Thanks so much for such a fun, wonderful story, and I look forward to playing more games from you in the future! ♥

Aw, thank you. :-) I'm so happy that you enjoyed it!

(Sorry for the late reply!)

Wow! I loved it! I felt as though I became apart of that story. Looking forward to any other games you got like this!

wow! What great writing :O Love it <3

Thank you!

(Sorry for the late reply!)

I loved everything about this game and all the work and love you put in it. I will definitely buy all the other routes, but don't forget to take care of yourself!

Thank you very much -- for the kind words and the support. :-)

(Sorry for the late reply!)

any idea when another route will be released???

The creator's Tumblr was recently updated. There were some unforeseen issues irl, but she is working on the game almost everyday and it will be released asap.


do you have any idea when the other routes will come out???

Loved this game. Can't wait to play the next routes. On another note, I was unable to comment on Aloners after playing it along time ago so just want to say that it was one of the best games I have played too. 

I'm glad! And I'm glad that you enjoyed Aloners, too. Thanks for this comment. :-)

(Sorry for the late reply!)

This game is amazing! I absolutely love it! I can't wait for the next installment. I enjoyed the writing so much; you had my stomach tied in knots many times wondering if I did the right thing. And best of all, I felt I could be the heroine I wanted to be without being penalized and forced to play a certain way. It's a truly organic experience--so natural and so enjoyable.  Thank you!

Thank you! It's such an important part of the games I write, that players feel like they have agency without being punished, so I'm very glad that you felt like you could be the heroine you wanted to be.

(Sorry for the late reply!)

Oh man, if only this were on steam, then I could buy it!!

Sorry! :-/ No immediate plans to make this available on Steam. Hopefully one day, but until then itch.io is the only place to buy Wilder: Ran's Story.

I seriously loved Ran.  The second I saw him I knew I had to play this game. I wasn't really sure if I was making the right choices and was scared I would get a bad ending or something but I didn't. I was able to stay true to myself in the choices and get a good ending and that was nice. And to be honest, I don't even care if he is a "monster," I just want to squeeze him so tight. He was exactly the type that I love going after in these types of games. And his story was so amazing and sad. Actually, I really loved the entire story and the only parts I had problems with was literally because I felt like I was going to lose him, which is amazing that the story managed to make me feel so strongly. And I could literally feel the sexual tension between him and the main girl. So good. I don't know if I will be able to get over the feeling of being attached to him...uggggghh his personality and looks left a lasting impression on me.

I'm so glad I decided to buy this. And I am so glad this was created! Thank you for this masterpiece!

I'm so glad that you loved him! And thank you for writing this comment. I can't tell you how much I appreciate knowing that you enjoyed this story the way you did.

(Sorry for the late reply!)

is there some sort of demo version? Id like to get a feel for it to purchase it

You can download the demo from the official page. :-)

The game was AMAZING!! I loved every bit of!! tbh, my friend lent it to me first and I just couldn't live not having my own version of this!! THANK YOU VERY MUCH <3

waiting for the other guys to be released

Thank you for purchasing! I'm really glad that you enjoyed Ran's Story.

I need more of this! It was spellbinding!!!

I'm so glad you enjoyed it. :-) More is on the way!

I bought this and absolutely love it! If you are after some solid characterisation, interesting premises, romance, angst and HEA OR bittersweet ending def recommend.

Thank you so much! I'm glad that you enjoyed it. :-)

But like? Where is the gallery? Is missing?

The gallery's only going to be in the full version with all the routes in it



I enjoyed Ran's route so much, the art is soooo gorgeous, and I loved the fact that you could pick which rating you wanted, I picked mature of course but it was still nice to have the choice. I can't wait for Bahadur route, ugh I enjoyed Wilder soo much. Also I hope there's epilogues for all the routes released. I'm dying to get a glimpse into how Ran and the mc fare.


I'm glad that you liked the Teen/Mature choice. The best of both worlds, right?

Bahadur's Story will be next, so I hope you enjoy that. And there will be epilogues for all characters included in the full version of Wilder, to be released after the individual routes are done.

Yay I'm absolutely ecstatic, also I hope everything is all right with your family:)

omg i can't wait to see ran again

Yay it means we will get to see him againxD

I can't wait for Bahadur, seriously the wait is killllllling me. So close yet so far TTnTT


Haha! I know it's a long wait. He won't be ready for April, but soon. Hang in there!


Good story! I hope we get to see more of Bahadur.

(Edited 1 time) (+2)

Bahadur's Story is next to be released, actually. :-)

I can't stop thinking about this game. It was amazing. Any estimation on when another route will be getting close to being out?

(Edited 1 time)

I think they're attending to family matters and will let us know from their dev. blog when they're back? Although I believe last they posted they would still release Bahadour sometime this month even with the delays

Thanks! I will look for their dev. page. :( I hope everything goes okay for them. :(



LOL! Thank you so much! (And more is a-comin'...)

SO SOOOOOO excited!

This game was such a delight! Loved every minute of it. <3

I'm glad! Thanks. :-)

I don't know where to start... This game was so beautiful in every way. The characters are all well designed and I couldn't help it but feel their emotions. And the story is just wonderful. I cried at the end lmao this was so touching my heart couldn't take it. This game is without a doubt in my top 3.
Anyway, great job !

Aw, wow, thank you so much!


A great story. I loved Ran, I almost don't want to play the other stories yet to be released. The characters and world building had great depth, so my resistance will likely be futile. :P The other reviewers have said it all. I look forward to playing the rest of the games.

Thank you so much! :-)

I loved this game sooo much! Even though I couldn't see the dialog box at all (couldn't fix it either, sadly), so some text was pretty much invisible to me, I still enjoyed the story. It was amazing how their relationship developped along the road. I pretty much acted as if I would in real life and got Ran's sweet ending. I am NOT going for the bitter end though, I think that would just destroy me xD I'm especially amazed at how you handled sex scenes. You were vague, but it was still easy to figure out what they were doing. Plus, you left a lot to our imagination and that was great. I can't wait for your other routes, although I think Ran will remain my favorite forever. I'm a sucker for guys with his personality, white/black hair and red eyes (oh, those red eyes *swoons*) :D

Thank you for playing, and for your kind words. I can't wait to see if anyone else is able to push Ran off his throne for you... ;-)

And the missing dialogue box should not be happening. If you are still having this issue, please email me (sonnet009@gmail) so we can get it fixed. You deserve a 100% working product!

Hi! I think I managed to fix this issue myself, a while ago. I just needed to hold Shift while loading up the game and then change graphics acceleration to Force Software Renderer. I guess my PC is lacking a bit in this department and the wrong option was chosen automatically.

Anyways, I finally was able to see the whole text clearly and that made my day! I know your next character is Bahadur, but I am soooooooo super interested in your other three guys. Can you give us a little hint, perhaps? :)


Initial concept, you have my interest. Notice it's by the maker of Aloners, I cannot purchase fast enough! What can I say, it's amazing just as expected! I just love the writing in this, especially for this character there's the perfect mix of humor, and stabbing my heart (in the best possible way). So excited for future updates on this project!!

I'm glad it didn't disappoint! Thank you so much.

This... I... I have no words for it. I literally just finished playing.. and I loved every inch of it. I feel like i've been playing for months, when it's only been a few hours. I've been emotionally involved with both main characters - laughed, smiled, felt disgust - hell, almost cried. I haven't got much else to say than It's a small price to pay for something so great.

Oh, I'm so glad! :-) Thank you very, very much for playing, and for sharing your response.

You're very welcome. Thank you for making something so brilliant. I'm looking forward to your future releases.

I believe my favorite part was when they greeted him as Ron, and i simply had to go along with it. That was priceless xD

soooo he's a djinn? like a genie?

Sort of. In the world of Wilder, the magical-granting-wishes djinn are a thing of the past, or maybe even of legend. Modern djinn in this world have very little what is called "old magic" in them anymore.

(Edited 1 time)

so are there to be more stories added? :)oh and where can i get the demo? i want to have a look first before i purchase

There are 5 routes, to be released one-by-one, followed by a complete edition. The demo can be downloaded here.

oooo do you maybe have an ETA for the next route? really excited for bahadur

(Edited 1 time)

Love this game and especially Ran I think hell be my fav :D Just one question..I got sweet ending, is there a best ending too? With resolving who is you know what? :D Do you maybe have a guide? And the gallery is missing is it coming soon?

Thanks for playing!

There are two endings, Bitter and Sweet. Parts of the mystery left unsolved will be addressed in other routes.

I just posted a guide to Ran's Story here.

And the gallery will not be present in the individual routes, but will be present in the complete edition that will be released afterwards.

Congratulations for wilder's release! ^^

I've been waiting for few years for this...and hopefully just few months away from the full version.... Purchased Ran's and getting even more sure that this game is really worth waiting for!!

Thanks for your hard work! Keep growing! ^^

Yay! Thanks!

And don't worry -- I'm still hard at work! :-)

Very wonderful story! I could not stop until it was finished (at 2AM with work in the morning, haha) and I definitely got emotional throughout the journey. I cannot wait for the other routes!!

Oops! Hope work wasn't too rough for you! ;-) And, thank you!

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

In love! Been waiting for this forever and it didn't disappoint. Very much looking forward to the other routes because the writing is so great but I'll no doubt be pining for more Ran(he's so my type) for a while! In short, this game was, is and I have no doubt will be fabulous!

Oh, I'm so glad! :-) Thank you.
