Rise of the Argonauts Developer Commentaries: Jason’s Back Story and the Gods

Anyone else looking forward to Rise of the Argonauts? I sure am. Next to high fantasy, Greek mythology is a favorite theme and setting I love to explore in games, movies and books. Thing is, I can’t recall ever playing any truly memorable mythological RPGs. Sure, games like Titan Quest and Loki are solid, but neither are special. So I guess my attraction to Rise of the Argonauts is the mere hope for a great RPG steeped in the lore of Greek mythology. That and the fact that it genuinely appears to be shaping up exceptionally well, at least judging from all the footage shown and the ideas touched upon in these new developer commentary videos.
