About the StoryIn this game about Greek myths, you play as several characters. In the prologue and endgame, you are a hero who wants to make his destiny with the Golden Bowl of Artemis. In the main game, you are a modern-day cat owner searching for five pages of notes. Each page describes a different myth which you enact as Theseus, Celides, Daedalus, Polyeidus, or Hermes when you take their page.

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

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