A lot has altered since then, together with the title, which was re-discovered now by publisher Humble Video games as Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical (opens in new tab).
Stray Gods will take spot in a “fashionable fantasy environment” and follows the story of Grace, who is granted the electricity of a Muse that allows her to draw other individuals into musical figures. But it can be not all song and dance: She’s given the electric power after the previous Muse of Greek mythology dies in her arms, and finds herself drawn into a top secret globe of gods and monsters, who live concealed amid humanity. In this new lifestyle, she will have to navigate a earth loaded with “hilarious, enigmatic, and delightful figures,” and unravel the thriller of the dying of her predecessor.
We famous when the match was first announced that it was not an RPG, which was a little bit unexpected offered the backgrounds of Gaider and Summerfall co-founder Liam Esler, whose preceding credits include Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, and Pillars of Eternity—RPGs all. The new title reflects how the design and style and development has shifted considering the fact that then.
“There ended up a lot of causes why we preferred to alter the title. But the primary determination was that as the project grew previous what we’d initially envisioned, we felt it required a new new name that far better fits the game’s tone and themes,” Summerfall executive producer Elie Youthful stated. “We realised what we have been making was fewer of an journey activity, and a great deal much more of a roleplaying game—not an RPG in the mainstream sense, but a sport definitely predicated on roleplaying choices, in dialog and in tune. We come to feel that Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical is a substantially superior reflection of what we’re earning and the place we want Summerfall Studios to head in the long term.”
And, the good thing is, Stray Gods retains its amazing forged of collaborators, together with Gaider, composer Austin Wintory, and voice actors Troy Baker and Laura Bailey.
