Stray Gods, The Iron Oath, Coral Island, and more revealed as part of Humble Games' release roadmap

Humble Games, the publishing arm under Humble Bundle, has revealed nine games joining the brand as part of its roadmap for 2022 and beyond. Among those nine titles, Humble includes RPGs like Stray Gods: The Roleplaying MusicalThe Iron OathCoral Island, and Infinite Guitars.

Today's series of announcements held reveal for Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical, while other titles like The Iron Oath received a release date. Both Coral Island and Infinite Guitars aren't out just yet, either, but the studios over those titles revealed their respective partnerships with publisher Humble Games. 

Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical

Among one of Humble Games' biggest announcements today, the publisher revealed it's teaming up with Summerfall Studios to launch Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical, over two years after its original crowdfunding campaign. 

Stray Gods is the tale of Grace, a young woman thrust into a world of gods and monsters after the Last Muse of greek mythology dies in her arms. As the Last Muse passes, Grace is gifted with the ability to draw others into musical numbers. 

Tasked with uncovering the mystery behind the tragedy, Grace begins an adventure described by Summerfall as a "heartfelt reconception of Greek mythology combining what we love about contemporary musical theater (think Buffy: Once More With Feeling, Hadestown, and Wicked) with video games where character and story take center stage (think Dream Daddy, Life Is Strange, and Dragon Age)."

Over two years ago, BioWare lead writer David Gaider raised $690,000 in his first indie endeavor as the creative director at Summerfall Studios. Originally titled Chorus: An Adventure Musical, today's Stray Gods announcement is also a rebranding under a new name. 

Gaider is credited as lead writer and creator of the setting for Dragon Age, in addition to working on other titles like Baldur's Gate II, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. He's joined by composer Austin Wintory (Journey, Abzu, Banner Saga 3), voice director Troy Baker, and star Laura Bailey. 

Stray Gods is coming to Steam via PC, with no confirmed release date just yet.

The Iron Oath

Turn-based tactical RPG The Iron Oath is headed to Steam Early Access this year on April 19. Developer Curious Panda Games made the announcement with a demo available via Steam

The Iron Oath's turn-based combat follows a mercenary company through the ages. They'll age, retire, and die across decades in the pixel-art fantasy realm Caelum. With that passage of time comes plenty of change, and leading the crew means adapting to a shifting world often caught up in a power struggle between noble houses. 

Developer Curious Panda notes there's high-stakes tactical combat, and your mercenary roster is a delicate one with unpopular decisions to make along the way. Customize, build, and complement the team's abilities while treading carefully not to doom them all to ruin early on.

Coral Island

Stairway Games says its farming simulation title is one inspired by the classics. In Coral Island, you'll tackle regular farm sim chores like tending crops, raising animals, making friends, and restoring your town. However, the indie adventure is also one with a message on conservation as it tasks your farmer with protecting the ocean around them.

Over 50 characters call the island home, and Stairway Games notes the diverse cast comes from all walks of life to learn about through your conversations - 16 of them are romance options. Coral Island also takes the pressure off, eschewing the frantic simulation game deadlines for a relaxed, grow-at-your-own-pace story. 

Coral Island is coming to Steam in 2022, and today's announcement revealed its partnership with publisher Humble Games.

Infinite Guitars 

Infinite Guitars infuses the rhythm game formula with an RPG shake-up. Developer Nikko Nikko's anime-inspired title takes you on a mech-fighting adventure where music is the key to winning battles. 

As the remains of a cataclysmic mech war start to reawaken, your party will move from island to island in adventure sequences to fight the stirring metal giants. Instead of traditional swords, rods, or other classic staples, you'll use the power of electrifying guitars in rhythm-based combat. In Infinite Guitars, there are no random battles, leaving the option for more leisurely runs. 

In today's announcements, Humble Games revealed it's publishing Infinite Guitars. Nikko Nikko hasn't revealed a release date just yet, but it's coming to Steam
