Are you a fan of wearing a toga, inciting an unruly mob, taking on minotaurs and bringing down sacred temples? Then Okhlos, the upcoming strategy title from developers Coffee Powered Machine, is for you. A brand new trailer has been released for the anarchic title – check it out below:
“Squeeze into your toga and slide on your sandals to rally the angry mobs of Okhlos and bring down the oppressive god of mythological Greece! Your beloved people will not longer stand for the abuse from their deities and take up arms against them and taking down anything and everything in their path. Topple the beastly minotaur, bring down sacred temples, and confront the almighty Olympians themselves while recruiting and balancing your unruly mob with warriors, peasants, slaves and even livestock in their quest for freedom from Mount Olympus! It’s total anarchy in the birthplace of democracy!
An Unruly Mob:
The people are angry and have united behind the noble philosophers to do their bidding to take down the soldiers, mythical beasts and temples under the control of the twelve vile gods.
Carefully recruit your followers from warriors, peasants, slaves and beasts of burden and unlock special units or swap units for one of 100 legendary heroes to upgrade the mob and increase their savagery. Wield the power of Heracles, Leonidas, Pandora, and Socrates to turn your mischievous gang into a formidable army!
Every campaign against the gods is different with changes to heroes, monsters, and bosses – and even the mob itself – each time you and your followers set out for battle. Traverse eight procedurally generated Greek cities and never fight through the same world twice!
Bring Down Colossal Gods:
Make your way through all manner of beasts, warriors, and demi-gods to arrive at the feet of the maleficent Olympians and unleash the power of the people in epic boss battles set against ancient ruins before they were ancient!”
Okhlos look’s utterly insane but fantastic at the same time. Devolver Digital have publishing duties too and they have a reputation of bringing quality titles to multiple platforms. You also know with Devolver Digital you’ll get a great quote from CFO Fork Parker:
“Okhlos is basically a modern retelling of Homer’s Odyssey but instead of a classical hero embarking on a grand adventure it’s mostly pissed off greeks wrecking stuff until they get their way, Come to think of it, Okhlos is nothing like the Odyssey. Whatever, just buy it.”
It’ll be hitting PC, Mac and Linux in March – no exactly day confirmed yet, but we’ll keep you updated. For now, you can check out the game on it’s official website through this link.
