It is a very narrative game in which Greek mythology and modern urban intrigues meet. The player controls Grace, who is endowed with the powers of a muse and who must investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of that muse. The player’s choices influence the course of the narrative, which is reflected in the interactions with the other characters and in the soundtrack.

In this urban fantasy tale, it’s up to you whether you’ll charm, negotiate, or use force as you interact with diverse characters. During this musical journey, the player plunges into a secret world inhabited by humans, monsters, and Greek deities.

Evaluation

There are no particularly frightening scenes or excessive violence. Since Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical is inspired by Greek myths, difficult themes such as death and betrayal are discussed.

It is a game that has 4 romance options, so there may be suggestive content.

It is necessary to know how to read to follow the story of this game. Dialogues may contain threats, insults, and manipulation.

The main character investigates a murder to prove her innocence and discovers Greek myths by interacting directly with the myths’ actors. It’s a game that can spark interest in mythology and story, but suggestive themes can come up at several points.
