Indie RPG Toward The Pantheon Now On Steam Greenlight
A girl, a ghost, a cyborg, and a house cat walk into a bar...
Every great games needs a great hook, and in Towards the Pantheon, the upcoming JRPG-style game from composer and developer Connor Linning, players are able to take control of a college-educated housecat. If that isn't enough, players can also control a ghost with self-destructive tendencies, a cyborg social outcast, and a shy, coffee-drinking young woman named after the Norse goddess of war, sex, magic, and death.
On those terms alone, it's pretty safe to say that Towards The Pantheon is going its own direction, and that's a good thing. Plus, the Japanese-RPG style should not only make the game approachable for any gamers of any background, it should also serve as a solid foundation with which Linning can tell his own sort of story — a tale which is described on the game's Steam page as "lighthearted, fun, dark, and painful."
The game is currently on Steam's Greenlight service, with Linning hoping for a proper release around the end of 2017. However, once greenlit, Connor has aspirations to bring the game to both iOS and Android, and potentially even Windows 8 and home consoles beyond that. All he needs for now, of course, is a few votes, so any gamers interested in a unique indie RPG should throw Towards The Pantheon a thumbs-up over on its Steam Greenlight page.
