The Substitute of Zeus is an upcoming visual novel by Team DS (Doh//ド Sadistic). They are a team of Korean indie game-makers who would like to release your inner sadist. >_> ahah, umm, I took that from their web so forgive me. They have an English Tumblr as well as a Naver blog.
You play as Young-Un (name changeable) who has been abducted by the Head Honcho of Olympus and has to be a substitute while Zeus settle things (monsters appearing) because Zeus couldn’t keep his toga tied to his body.
Had enough time to have a play through the prologue of the new Korean otome game demo of Substitute of Zeus! Very excited to get stuck into the game tomorrow on my day off.
The art is beautiful and I like how it seems to reappropriate Greek mythology. Another excellent thing is that rather than your standard visual novel the scenes are actually quite dynamic. As things are being described you can actually see them happening in an almost pop-up book manner. Arrows glow, characters actually move to their actions and tentacles flail. Very good stuff! I’m sure once I’m done with the demo I’ll be dying for full release.
Definitely try out the demo for yourself if you get the time! You may be pleasantly surprised.
