Recently a new game, Stray Gods, got its release date published by the company, and it is not far from now. The game is described as an interactive role-playing musical, so like the games of the same genre, it will feature choosing between several options as the story progresses. The options determine the path you take, as there may be several endings or side stories impacted accordingly.
Let’s begin with the news you’ve been anticipating, which is the release date. According to the official website Summerfall Studios, the confirmed Stray Gods release date is August 3, 2023, which is not a long time considering we’re just about to start June.
Plot of game
The plot for the game is from the point of view of Grace, a college dropout, who is given the power of a Muse in a world where modern fantasy exists. Grace will need this power to discover the cause of her predecessor’s death before time runs out.
In this hand-illustrated role-playing musical, you get to choose who Grace sides with, who she can trust, and who can betray her. The story is about taking decisions and finding the answers within seven days. During this limited time, Grace must demonstrate her innocence to the Greek pantheons.
Comic Book Art Style
The artwork for Stray Gods is 2D hand-illustrated with still pictures. The artwork and frame-by-frame images give the feel of a graphic novel or comic book. Also, the characters having powers make it feel more like a traditional action and drama-filled comic book.
Interactive game with multiple paths
The game includes branching narrative paths, where player choice will not only determine the story and tone of the dialogue spoken, but also the lyrics, and styles of music that the main character Grace sings.
The production claims that the story is so diverse that it is virtually impossible for someone or you yourself to have the same plot line twice.
