Musical role-playing adventure Stray Gods is charting a course for launch. The vocal venture will kick off on August 3 for PC.

The debut game from Summerfall Studios, Stray Gods is a story about Grace, who gets caught up in the life and drama of Greek gods after she’s made the prime suspect in the death of Calliope. In the process, she comes into some new powers, and will have the opportunity to discover the truth. Maybe she can even find some romance on the side?

This quest for truth, answers, and heavenly connections plays out in interactive musical form. Characters break out into song, and the player gets to make choices about the tone of Grace’s responses, potentially shifting the overall tenor and direction of the song.

The voice of the gods

It’s a pretty fascinating system, with former Dragon Age writer David Gaider penning the script. And alongside an interesting premise and narrative framing, there’s also a host of voice talent signed on. Here’s a rundown of the voice actors working on Stray Gods:

  • Laura Bailey as Grace
  • Troy Baker as Apollo
  • Mary Elizabeth McGlynn as Persephone
  • Janina Gavankar as Freddie
  • Khary Payton as Pan
  • Abubakar Salim as Eros
  • Felicia Day as Athena
  • Rahul Kohli as Minotaur
  • Allegra Clark as Hecate
  • Merle Dandridge as Aphrodite
  • Erika Ishii as Hermes
  • Ashley Johnson as Calliope
  • Lauren “Lolo” Spencer as Venus
  • Anjali Bhimani as Medusa
  • Kimberly Brooks as Oracle
  • Anthony Rapp as Orpheus

Throw in Austin Wintory as composer, alongside musicians Scott Edgar, Steven Gates, Simon Hall of Tripod, and Jess Cerro (Montaigne), and it’s a lot of talent.

Honestly, I am very curious to see how an interactive musical like this would shake out. These branching paths intrigue me, as does the Greek pantheon theming around a murder mystery. We’ll see how Summerfall’s debut Stray Gods comes together on August 3.
