Inventing mythology? Pratchett says Hi!

I get you’re exaggerating for the jokes, but there is a reason we never see games based on mythologies that aren’t Greek or Norse. We genuinely don’t know anything about them, even pretty much all of Norse is iffy because we can’t tell if our sources were Christianized, and a lot of Greek stories follow suit with that. If we were to make a game based off them, it would have very ambiguous characters and lore or just blatantly wrong/made up things.

Supergiant Games : "Exploring the dichotomy between movies you think are good and the type of movies that you actually watch." Can't say I disagree though. There's a tone of games that I find a lot more interesting to learn about than to actually play. I'm sure there's a long German word for that.

The reason that most mythology based games comes from Greek mythology is 2 main reasons. 1. The Greeks wrote everything thing down so we know a lot because of the many many sources. 2. Aside from Greek and Egyptian mythology, we don’t know much about any other cultures ‘true’ mythology because the original texts were lost because of Christian expansion, and they replaced it with their own version.

Yhatzee translation: If you are a fan of the rogue like genre, you probably already know about this game due to early access, and he liked a lot of aspects of it. He has some personal gripes, but thats more of a him thing. You should probably check it out.

Spoiler alert....most people don't know squat about Greek or Norse mythology. They just think they do because of video games and movies. I'll give one example out of MANY; the animated movie "Hercules" set in Greece....where the name would have been Haracles because "Hercules" is Roman. The list of major issues like that, which appear in movies and video games with depressing regularity, is huge. So if you think you know about anything because you played it in a video game or saw it in a movie, I strongly suggest doing some real research on it.

Well, I dunno about what Yahzee says about reusing Greek and Norse mythos. People reuse Tolkien a lot or base stories on biblical figures/fables and we don't really complain. I guess there is the issue that we know the gods in a more specific late and that them presiding over domains gives you a sense of what you can expect from each, but thats not so bad if you use it right or if everything else works. But I suppose it really would be nice to see some different mythology.

I think "God Mode" is probably one of the best Assist Modes I have seen in a game. It doesn't automatically start you out at being this invincible force but gives you 20% more damage resistance, and then every death gives you 2% more up until the 80% max. It gives players who aren't good at roguelites the ability to get into the game while at the same time not making the game a complete steamroll. Other then a mark on a completion of a run it doesn't lock you out of anything either.

Tolkien tried to make mythology when writing Hobbit and later lord of the rings did he not? as for other things we could explore - more slavic (beyond just Polish as we see in Witcher), Gaelic, Aboriginese, Celtic, Druidic, Egyptian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and so So SO many more myths are quite intriguing idea i admit. we have this wealth of stories in backlog of each culture but everything reverts to bunch of regurgitated stuff we all seen dozen times before. Yes you could argue that alot of Egyptian myths were stolen by christianity but some of it is not, i am willing to assume that details vary.
