Hey guys, because of Starfleet’s exchange program with the Klingon Empire, I’m here to talk about video games and share what kind of stuff I do over at my corner of the internet – and, hopefully, the League will respond in kind shortly. This is a review about Towards the Pantheon, and I figured it would be a good review to share with you guys!
Towards the Pantheon is an RPG about a girl named Freyja. I’m not going to ruin the story for you, because it’s pretty fun, but, it’s about a viking girl, her friend who is a cat, a half robot-girl who you meet along the way, and a ghost. Yeah. A fuckin’ ghost and a girl who has half a metal face riding on Hamsters, imagine how that works.
From their Steam Page:
“A group known as The Sworn Light have been gaining power throughout the world through divide and conquer tactics. While the humans, felines, electropunks, and ghosts argue amongst themselves, The Sworn Light are taking advantage of each situation in order to take ultimate control. One day Keltoi village chief Wuotan summons his strongest warrior Freyja to embark on a long and dangerous journey. Her mission is to trek towards The Pantheon to defeat the source of The Sworn Light before the world falls into chaos.”
The graphics are unique. It isn’t the most beautiful game I’ve ever seen, but, there are some really good images, especially the campfire scenes. The game is entirely done in 16 bit color, which makes what we do get incredible as far as the pixel art goes. The thing I do want to comment on heavily is the music. The music is very chill. I normally don’t mention much about music, because it’s just background noise, but, in RPGs, especially these turn based ones, music can really make a game feel good. The music in this is just fine for background music, I never once thought, “This music blows.” In fact, the music is good enough, I’m glad that the soundtrack is available, and in 90% of indie games, I would NEVER be excited about the soundtrack.
Disclosure: SNERD received this game for free.
