Athenian Rhapsody, the hilarious RPG, will release on mobile, PC, and console next month
  • Comedy RPG where you're responsible for writing your own stories
  • Journeys saved as Rhapsodies which can be shared with friends
  • Releases on all platforms on May 14th

Top Hat Studios and solo developer Nico Papalia have just announced a release date for their upcoming project, Athenian Rhapsody, and it’s not very far away. The comedic RPG will release on Android, iOS, PC, and consoles, and promises to take you on a whimsical adventure through Athens. Get ready to write your own story through a series of hilarious encounters, intense battles, and quirky interactions.

Athenian Rhapsody has been described as a souls-like platonic dating simulator inspired by games like Cooking-Mama and Warioware, and that was enough to get me intrigued. It’s clearly not your typical RPG. You’ll embark on a turn-based adventure featuring fast-paced real-time combat and bucketloads of challenges. Whether you choose to fight your way through or attempt to melt your opponents with pick-up lines and mean jokes, every decision you make will shape the outcome of your tale.

So, what’s a rhapsody anyway? It is a memento of your entire journey, as every decision, action, and event has been recorded into it. It’s like your own life story and no two of them will be the same. From the number of farts to your cumulative interactions, everything will be on display in your rhapsody. Combine multiple rhapsodies and create an even more complex adventure.
