Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical is set in a modern fantasy world where Greek Gods live hidden among us. College dropout Grace is quickly pulled into that world when she is granted the power of a Muse—power she’ll need to find out the truth behind her predecessor’s death. The choices players make as they charm, negotiate, or strong-arm their way through the game, including in original, fully interactive musical numbers, will impact their path to the end. Along the way, players will shape the soundtrack to their own one-of-a-kind musical experience as they help Grace find her voice, determining whom she allies with, who she can trust, and who may betray her. With four potential paramours, players can even stoke the fires of romance, and explore, pursue, and confess their love.

Written by David Gaider (Dragon Age, KotOR), Stray Gods features a dynamic cast of characters, a heartfelt reconception of Greek mythology blended with the magic of contemporary musical theater, songs by Grammy-nominated composer Austin Wintory (Journey, Banner Saga); Scott Edgar, Steven Gates and Simon Hall of Tripod; and Australian art pop musician and Twitch streamer Montaigne (Jess Cerro).
