The team from Petroglyph Games have answered some of our introductory questions about their upcoming MMORPG / Action Strategy hybrid game, Mytheon.
Can you tell us about Mytheon and how it is played?
Mytheon is played similar to other top down isometric action games (Diablo, Titan Quest, Baldur's Gate). The interface design is a very simple point click move system, with targeting and creature select. Since players can control multiple creatures on the battlefield we have added some unique quality of life features for players including "drag select" and "stances." Players can also assume direct control of creatures they have on the battlefield to scout ahead or to view multiple combat situations. To cast power stones, players simply have to click on a stone in their tactical UI and click the desired location on the battlefield.
The Petroglyph team has spent over a year tweaking and tuning the interface designs in Mytheon to ensure players of all types ease right into the gameplay experience.
