Mythology: Greek

Group Description

Includes games that are influenced by or directly based on Greek mythology. Most Greek myths are known to us from works of classic Greek authors: Homer's epic poems the Iliad and the Odyssey, Hesiod's Theogony, the tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides, etc. Greek myths have had an exceptionally strong influence on countless works of European art.

Note
Games based on the legend of Atlantis are not included in this group, unless they feature other themes from Greek mythology. The legend of Atlantis is a product of literary works (primarily Plato's Republic) and therefore cannot be considered a part of folk mythology.
