Mytheon is an online micro transaction game that uniquely combines the best elements of action, strategy and RPG game-play with a heavy emphasis on collectability and combat. This visually stunning title is set within a fantasy universe steeped in unique mythologies from across the globe. Players will first embark on a rousing journey through the extensive lore of ancient Greece; with ongoing expansions to follow that will delve into exotic mythologies from the far-flung corners of history. With real-time combat and extensive customization features, Mytheon will offer infinite replayability through group, PVP and solo play as well as an integrated social networking feature set.

Using some of the best and most familiar mechanics from traditional collectible card games, players will earn, buy, trade and collect stones they can assemble similar to deck-building among a thriving online community. Several compelling features have been added to create fast, visually stunning 3D combat sequences with a deep layer of strategy beneath it. In the game, players will collect and customize a vast assortment of "Power Stones" which are used to conjure devastating spells and summon faithful minions in climactic battles against monsters and other players. Mytheon will offer three distinct character classes, each specializing in a specific "Power Stone" type, such as summoning or healing.

In addition to many other colossal gods, players can expect to see the goddess of the harvest and seasons: Persephone, daughter of Zeus and Demeter. Persephone is also the Queen of the Underworld alongside Hades, forever doomed to preside over the realm of the dead. Players will also be introduced to the venerable sorceress, Circe.

"Based on real-world mythologies, we wanted players of Mytheon to experience not only the thrilling gameplay, but we also wanted that gameplay to occur within a recognizable historical context," said Peter Cesario, Director of New Business and Product Development at True Games Interactive. "With that in mind, players will find it thrilling to battle such epic deities as Persephone, Hades and the lesser-known but not to be underestimated, Circe."


About Hades

When the Olympians were freed from their father's belly, Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades agreed to draw lots. The eldest, Hades was the unfortunate brother who drew the shortest straw, condemning him to rule over the realm of the dead. While Hades was considered an iron-fisted ruler, he was thought of as a fair one--only those who crossed him directly were subject to his wrath. When the war with the gods began, Hades first chose the side of neutrality only to ultimately side with his siblings.

About Persephone

The daughter of Demeter, Persephone is the goddess of the harvest and the seasons. While she represents purity, youth, and vitality, Persephone's beauty so enchanted Hades that he kidnapped her forcing Demeter, Persephone's mother, to render the earth fallow and cold. Compelled to intervene, the other gods dispatched Hermes to the Underworld to recover Persephone. Forced to spend three months out of every year in the Underworld with Hades, Persephone came to be known as the Queen of the Underworld. As the legend holds, if one was alive and ate or drink while in the underworld they become a part of the underworld and could not leave. Hades tricked Persephone into eating three pomegranate seeds and therefore she was condemned to spend three months out of every year in the Underworld. This time in mythology became known as the season of Winter.

As time went on, Persephone was seduced by Hades and eventually abandoned her innocence. Her warmth and compassion having devolved into coldness and greed when the war with the gods began, Persephone vowed to battle those who would attempt to destroy the world and life she had come to love.

About Circe

A powerful sorceress, Circe is widely known for her unrivaled command of the art of alchemy. Indeed, it was by Circe's hand that Odysseus and his crew were delayed on her isle of Aeaea for an entire year at the start of the hero's great journey. With but a sip of her potion, Odysseus' men were transformed into swine, but the great hero was clever and did not fall under the sorceress' spell so easily. Impressed, Circe offered hospitality to Odysseus and his men. When Odysseus eventually left her company, Circe continued her pursuit of power and when she was approached by the gods, the sorceress couldn't refuse. Circe has created Odysseus' Passage--a trial of sorts that pits would-be heroes against the very same dangers braved by the hero during his epic journey.
