A collaborative effort between Humble Games and the innovative Summerfall Studios, the result is none other than “Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical.” This offering invites avid gamers to embark on a journey interwoven with themes of music, self-discovery, hope, and the resolute forging of individual paths.

Steering into uncharted territory, “Stray Gods” has brought to life a novel fusion of elements, amalgamating the art of compelling storytelling, the charm of unique character dynamics, the allure of enchanting melodies, and the allure of thrilling adventures. At the helm of this creative endeavor is none other than David Gaider, a luminary in the realm of narrative design and the visionary founder of Summerfall Studios.

David Gaider enthusiastically remarked, “With Stray Gods, we set out to venture into uncharted territories, sculpting an experience that had yet to grace the gaming landscape. Our aim was to seamlessly blend the very essence of what defines Summerfall Studios—narrative mastery, characters that resonate, melodies that stir the soul, and adventures that set hearts racing. The culmination of this, coupled with our collaboration with industry maestros, fills us with immense pride as we unveil this labor of love to our dedicated fanbase.”

“Stray Gods” casts its spotlight on Grace, an enigmatic college dropout who finds herself bestowed with the profound gift of a Muse. Her journey is poised to unravel the mysterious shroud that cloaks her predecessor’s untimely demise. Yet, in a testament to player agency, the game unfurls like a tapestry of choices. Players wield the power to weave Grace’s social tapestry, strategically selecting her allies and adversaries, those she trusts and those she consigns to betrayal. Echoing the heartbeats of individual decisions, Grace’s actions resound with the essence of each player’s distinctive perspective.

Enveloping players in an auditory symphony that resonates with originality, the musical score becomes an indispensable character in its own right. The musical maestros behind this opus are a trio of luminaries: Grammy-nominated composer Austin Wintory, celebrated for his compositions in “Journey” and “Banner Saga,” Tripod—a harmonious trinity consisting of Scott Edgar, Steven Gates, and Simon Hall— and the melodious contributions of Montaigne, a luminary from Eurovision Australia (Jess Cerro).

In a move that caters to the diverse gaming community, “Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical” is accessible across an array of platforms. It beckons players from the realms of Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and the immersive realm of PC gaming through platforms such as Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG.
