Description

A centaur found a baby abandoned on a mountainside, took him, and raise him as his own. When the baby becomes a young man, the centaur reveals to him that there was a ring and a few gems in his baby blanket. This can only mean that he is of no ordinary origin, and is probably connected to the gods. The young man leaves the centaur's house, determined to find his real parents, and learn about his heroic destiny.

Wrath of the Gods is a puzzle-solving adventure game revolving around popular Greek myths. Many of the puzzles can be solved by applying knowledge of Greek mythology. To further emphasize the educational element, the game includes an database of Greek mythology, which can be used as a hint system to solving the puzzles, or purely for learning purposes. The game utilizes digitized photographs for characters and backgrounds, with third-person navigation.
