Set to launch later in 2019, Argonus and the Gods of Stone brings the gods, monsters and heroes of Greek mythology to life in an epic first-person adventure
13th May 2019 – Charlottesville, VA – Independent developer Zojoi, creator of the cult classic adventure game Shadowgate, announced today that it will be bringing “Argonus and the Gods of Stone” to PC later this year via Steam.
Designed as a love-letter to the iconic Ray Harryhausen fantasy films of yesteryear, players unlock legendary mysteries, come face-to-face with fabled creatures and barter with ancient gods.
Set in a world inspired by Greek myths and heroes, players take on the role of Argonus, a cartographer and historian, who has been washed up and stranded on a mysterious island within the vast expanse of the Aegean Sea. The mighty ship Argo is in ruins and Argonus must not only discover the fate of the storied Argonauts but find an escape from the cursed isle as well.
With a guardian goddess leading him, Argonus embarks on an adventure filled with mystery and peril as he risks succumbing to an evil that threatens to bring his world to ruin.
Developer Zojoi will be making two versions of the game available on release in the form of a Standard and Special “Olympus” Edition. Bonus features in the Olympus Edition include an immersive walk-through audiobook narrated by Betsy Brantley (The Princess Bride, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?), the game’s original score by composer Rich Douglas (Shadowgate, Day of Infamy, Stranger Things: The Game) and a digital compendium of the game’s concept art from Nabetse Zitro.
Players can look forward to entering the world of Argonus and the Gods of Stone later this year. Eager adventurers can also visit the Steam Store now to add the game to their Wishlist.
