Odysseus visited plenty of exotic lands during his ten year trek home from Troy, and now his epic journey has finally landed him on Windows, Mac, Linux, and various mobile devices in The Odyssey HD.
Based on Homer's famous poem, The Odyssey HD puts players into the bare feet of Odysseus (also known as Ulysses) as he travels home from the Trojan War. The path is fraught with danger, however, as he must "escape from the goddess Calypso, blind the Cyclops Polyphemus, face the witch-goddess Circe, go to the land of the dead and find an oracle, avoid the Siren mermaids, pass between the six-headed monster Scylla and the whirlpool Charybdis, and visit the Sun god's island" before finally uniting his family.
As seen in the game's introductory trailer, The Odyssey HD features colourful hand-drawn cartoon artwork, and promises plenty of "humorous dialogs and challenging puzzles" to go with some light educational material.
The game is available for download now on a variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac, and Linux at the official website for €7.95, or the App Store for iOS (currently offered at a launch sale discount).
