Greek Mythology-inspired Adventure ‘Journey For Elysium’ Gets New Gameplay Trailer

News Bits


Journey For Elysium, an upcoming VR adventure game from publisher Cronos Interactive and developer Mantis Games, got a fresh trailer today, revealing a bit more of the Greek mythology-inspired title.

Journey For Elysium is a story-driven puzzle adventure game that puts players in the role of a hero who, after passing away, travels on a boat in the Underworld. On a search to reach Elysium, the paradise realm in Ancient Greek mythology, you encounter what Mantis calls “a series of increasingly elaborate twists and challenges.”

The game previously took a stab at a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, although it unfortunately fell short of its €20,000 funding goal in April, 2019.

Undeterred, the studio continued with development, and released a gameplay trailer today (linked below) showing off the game’s monochromatic art style; you might more succinctly call it a teaser considering no real gameplay is shown outside of rowing a boat, climbing a ladder and grabbing a glowing key.

Mantis Games however says the game’s puzzles are inspired by the classic adventure games of the ’90s, and that they will include an increasing difficulty as the story progresses.

Journey For Elysium is slated launch in Q4 2019 and will be available on Steam for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.

    The monochrome art style seems off. I get it’s the Underworld but why would it have no color? Anyways, I’ll check it out and see how reviews are once it launches.

      yah, probably a dealbreaker for me. would have to really tickle my fancy in some unique way to overcome the lack of color.
