Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide

This game spins around two tightly entwined themes - mythology of Ancient Greece, and cats. It is done very solidly, with well-constructed puzzles, and an interesting plot. Don't get irritated by the fact that this review's tone isn't as expressive as it might have been - MythTale is definitely worth playing; the thing is, I just prefer dogs;).

-- Valentine Kopteltsev

>VERBOSE -- Paul O'Brian's Interactive Fiction Page

Overall, despite the fact that it has some fun moments, MythTale is pretty much hit or (must... resist... cheesy... pun...) miss.

None of this prevents MythTale from being well worth playing, but it isn't going to last as long as the myths it refers to.

A greek mythology/modern life game, August 1, 2017

This was an entertaining game from IFcomp 2002.

You explore your house, looking for your notes. As you find notes, you have a sort of flashback or dream of a greek mythological figure.

I enjoyed these vignettes more than the house filled with greek mythology-named cats.

The game was a bit underclued, though, and it was hard to get invested.

If you enjoyed MythTale...

"The staff's jubilant anticipation of the first human transfer was now replaced with dread. Why had the Professor fallen ill so suddenly? And how callous of the Overseers to insist on proceeding without delay!" [--blurb from Competition...
