Some material may be inappropriate for persons under age 18. If this were a movie, it would probably be R.

Live as Gaius, a demigod sired by none other than the Lord of the Gods himself, Zeus, in an attempt to right some wrongs. You live in ancient Greece where monsters, Gods, and other unworldly beings walk the Earth alongside mortals.

A group of refugees are escaping from their hometown of Cione. They told of a giant so terrifying that even Gods fear it. As a hero who aims to make a name for himself, what would you do?

Discover and live a story unlike anything you've witnessed before.

As this is my very first game (it's more of a story so...) Please don't expect anything exceptional. I didn't try to make it a game where you win or lose, it's a story and the choices you make just changes how the story will go and you can only have one ending. You can never lose, unfortunately. Rate this how you would rate a story, not a game.

This story is for hardcore readers only, if you're not prepared to read a lot then this is not for you...

Player Comments

This was a good entertaining read, and while some might criticise you for a its linearity, I think this style works and it does make it replayable.

I did enjoy this story and your writing style is pretty good, but I thought character development felt sorta empty. The protagonist's emotions and motives seem too simple. He wants to save people just because, and afterwards he feels angry because his village was destroyed. I think you could have given him more depth.

It's pretty good but all roads led back to the main story, which was a little boring.

Amazing! This game was rather wonderfully written and it was never dull from beginning to end. My expectations for this storygame was high, but it exceeded them quite well.

Bravo :D

Awesome story!
Caught one grammar mistake, and a very confusing sentence but that was it.
I loved it!

When you said "This story is for hardcore readers only, if you're not prepared to read a lot then this is not for you..." I thought the story would be like endmaster's games, also it realy is a story not a game. All the paths lead to one ending. But it's the journey not the destination, and the journey was great, filled with action and pleanty of details, (and a overpowered hero who doesn't make dumb mistakes.)
