Humble Games, alongside developer Summerfall Studios, has revealed that Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical will release sometime this summer. The two companies will soon be hosting a stream where they’ll share more information about the interactive roleplaying musical game.

Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical – Teaser Trailer:

Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical is an interactive roleplaying musical game set in a modern fantasy world where Greek Gods live hidden among us. College dropout Grace is quickly pulled into that world when she is granted the power of a Muse—power she’ll need to find out the truth behind her predecessor’s death. The choices players make as they charm, negotiate, or strong-arm their way through the game, including in original, fully interactive musical numbers, will impact their path to the end. Along the way, players will shape the soundtrack to their own one-of-a-kind musical experience as they help Grace find her voice, determining whom she allies with, who she can trust, and who may betray her. With four potential paramours, players can even stoke the fires of romance, and explore, pursue and confess their love.

The game certainly seems like it’s worth keeping an eye on, with talents such as Austin Wintory (composer on Journey and The Banner Saga), Laura Bailey (The Last of Us Part II, Critical Role), and David Gaider (writer on Dragon Age and KOTOR) working on the project.

Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical – Key Features

The title’s Steam page highlights the following key features:

Find Your Voice – Adventure, love, and songs await! Charm, negotiate, or strong-arm your way through their world as Grace, playing through original, fully interactive musical numbers composed by Grammy-nominated composer Austin Wintory (Journey, Banner Saga), Tripod (musicians Scott Edgar, Steven Gates, and Simon Hall) and Eurovision Australia’s own Montaigne (Jess Cerro). Fully orchestrated and performed by an all-star cast, you’ll feel as though you’re right there on the stage. With thousands of potential variations based on your choices, you’ll craft the soundtrack to your own one of a kind musical experience.

Find Answers – Choice and consequence built from the DNA of RPGs – no two playthroughs are the same. Delve into a hidden world of mythic Greek gods and monsters as you get to know a cast of hilarious, enigmatic, and compelling characters. Forget what you know about these mythological beings – in Stray Gods you’ll forge friendships and find foes with many familiar names, but not so familiar stories. Play as star and stagehand as you determine the story you want to tell through conversation and song.

Find Love? – Find friendship, love, or yourself. Build friendships with mortals and Gods alike. Stoke the fires of romance if you so choose – explore, pursue, and confess your love with four potential paramours. Decide who you want to be through every choice. David Gaider’s storytelling and characters come to life with performances by an all-star cast, with the likes of Laura Bailey (The Last of Us 2, Critical Role), Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (Steven Universe, Resident Evil) and more cast members across video games, television, and Broadway to be revealed soon.

A Whole New World – A musical for video game lovers, and a video game for musical lovers. With all the comedy and tragedy of your favorite stage shows, Stray Gods is a tongue-in-cheek and heartfelt reconception of Greek mythology combining what we love about contemporary musical theater (think Hadestown, Buffy: Once More With Feeling, and Wicked) with video games where character and story take center stage (think Life is Strange, Dragon Age, and Dream Daddy). Collaborating with some of the best in music, broadway, television, and games – Stray Gods is a debut not to be missed.

Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical is set to release sometime this summer. For future updates on the title, make sure to keep an eye on RPGFan’s news feed.
