In Odissea: An Almost True Story you play as Ulysses. You are on an adventure which is based on the adventures of Ulysses, where you visit legendary places such as the cave of the Cyclops, Calypso's island and the Sirens' tavern...

You are on a long journey in search of your homeland Ithaca. There your beloved wife Penelope has been awaiting for many years for your return.

Troy has fallen by your hands but the gods are not pleased with that action. They decided Ulysses needs to pay dearly for this mistake. In order to appease Poseidon you will have to undergo many tests during your way home.

Fortunately not all of the gods want to see you suffer. The Goddess Athena is on your side, and thanks to her advice you might once again be able to see the coasts of Ithaca. But if so, new troubles awaits you...

You've been away for twenty years, a long time. meanwhile, the Proci have been courting your wife Penelope with the option of marriage in order to rob you of your throne and thereby your island dominion. In order to get the Queen's hand there is an archery contest to be taken: one must successfully draw back the King's magic bow and demonstrate his supremacy in this archery contest.

Who among the participants will succeed this test? Ulysses' son? Telemachus? Or you? If you are able to return in time...

The game is played as a classic point-and-click adventure. Players guide Ulysses through different scenes and you can interact with objects and character. You can have conversations with characters, examining the scenes and interact with objects. Gathered items get stored in an inventory near the bottom of the screen. Some items might also be combined. The puzzles are based on interaction with the environment and it's objects and by having conversations with the characters. You cannot die in this adventure game.
