Today, Whitethorn Games — publisher of inclusive, accessible, easy-going games including Calico, Lake, and Wytchwood — and Polygon Treehouse — the developer behind the BAFTA Award-nominated Röki — announce that their upcoming relaxing friend-em-up adventure Mythwrecked: Ambrosia Island is coming to PC and consoles in summer of 2024. Soon, you’ll be able to embark on a non-violent adventure that invites you to escape to a beautiful Mediterranean island, explore its gorgeous sandy beaches, awe-inspiring ruins, and vibrant vegetation as you uncover its magic and secrets and befriend the gods.
“We put a lot of ourselves into our games, and Mythwrecked is very close to our hearts. We want to make sure the game lives up to its potential, and we put the best possible version of the game into the hands of players,” said Alex Kanaris-Sotiriou, Director and Lead Developer at Polygon Treehouse.
He continues, “We’ve been thrilled to showcase Mythwrecked at prestigious events like LudoNarraCon and The Future Games Show, and the response has been amazing from both players and press. People are always surprised how tiny the team at Polygon Treehouse is, and by moving the release to next year, we can make sure that we put the best possible version of the game into the hands of players, and also enjoy the journey ourselves. We’re stoked to have the support and belief of the awesome folks from Whitethorn Games backing us and can’t wait to show more of the game in the coming months.”
“We 100% support this new extended development timeline for Mythwrecked,” said Dr. Matthew White, CEO of Whitethorn Games. “We value our developers and will do whatever we can to support them as they fulfill the true visions they have for their games. Working with the team at Polygon Treehouse is a joy, and we’ll continue to provide the resources they need to create the game they set out to make.”
Mythwrecked invites you to take on the role of backpacker Alex, who has found herself stranded on the gorgeous shores of Ambrosia Island. As she begins to explore her surroundings, she discovers that she is not alone – the island is populated by the gods of Greek myth and legend! However, something is amiss – the gods are unable to remember who they are. In order to find her way home, she must befriend the inhabitants and help them to restore their memories.
Explore the dynamic island in this non-linear adventure and unravel its story to discover its celestial guests and build friendships with the gods through a unique relationship mechanic. The closer you become, the more they are willing to help Alex with their godly powers. Solve the mystery of Ambrosia Island, save the gods, and hopefully help Alex find a way back home!
