A new video game featuring Ancient Greeks on Mount Olympus is coming to PlayStation 4 in January 2015.
The game was developed by Alien Trap Games and will be called “Apotheon.”
The game takes place on Mount Olympus with players making their way to the top while battling a collection of gods and interacting with Non-Player Characters. Everything featured in the game is inspired by Greek mythology. “Apotheon” has the aesthetic of ancient Greek art.
It is not the first time that a game inspired by Greek mythology has been launched. Several games have been produced, featuring the feats of Hercules, the gods of Olympus mountain and other ancient heroes, that have been marked with success.
Recently another game, called Fury of the Gods was launched. Players choose one of three different Greek mythological deities as their avatar: Zeus, Poseidon, or Hades. Each campaign has a collection of baddies, as gods, monsters and idols march on the player’s temples. Fury of the Gods is free to play and can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store.
