Mythwrecked: Ambrosia Island (PC, Xbox, Switch) – First Hands-on Demo
In this “friend-’em-up” adventure from the team behind the critically acclaimed Röki, play as Alex, a rookie backpacker whose vacation is upturned thanks to a terrible storm. Alex washes up onto the sun-drenched shores of Ambrosia Island, the long-lost home of the Greek pantheon of gods. But something is wrong — the gods are cursed and have forgotten who they are! In order to piece together what happened, Alex must journey across the island, find and befriend the gods, and help them restore their memories.
