Many titles I enjoy playing, such as Stardew Valley and Valhiem, do not have voice acting. However, when I watch my spouse play a game, we like to guess the voice actors for various characters. Ever since we started watching Critical Role, we have been more mindful of this aspect of the craft. So when I found a game tied to many talented artists, I knew I had to share it with TGON. Today, we will learn about Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical.
Summerfall Studios boasts an all-star cast, and they were not exaggerating. Down below is a table of the actors and the characters they voice. Since this is a musically inclined title, we cannot forget the fantastic composers. These include Grammy-nominated Austin Wintory (Flow & Journey), the musical comedy trio Tripod (Scott Edgar, Steven Gates, & Simon Hall), and Eurovision Australia’s Montaigne (Jess Cerro).

Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical is set in a modern fantasy world. Grace, our protagonist, is a college dropout with the power of a Muse. Unfortunately, time is not on her side, as she seeks the truth about her predecessor’s death. Your choices matter in this game, leaving no two playthroughs the same. So who will you align with? Sure, many of us know the stories of the Greek gods, but their tales are different in this world. Learn their backstories, build relationships, find love, and maybe even find yourself. This hand-drawn story wants you to find your voice and hear a one-of-a-kind musical experience.
Thoughts on Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical
When I first saw this title flash across my computer screen, I was in awe of the casting decisions. From television, D&D streams, and video games, I knew pretty much every name I came across. So, that was exciting. However, that is not what will make me play this game. The musical aspect and art style displayed in this title are unique. I am excited to see these characters break out in song.
Additionally, it will be interesting to see the Greek pantheon as these developers have tweaked it. Finally, I am most excited to see how my choices impact the gameplay experience. Based on the trailer alone, I know I will want to replay the story multiple times. So seeing what I can change throughout the game will be an exciting challenge. All-and-all, I am excited to play Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical.
