Youll play as a celebration of 8 heroes called Demigods whove been selected at random from the population to serve a three year term as guardians of the peace. Regardless of its very fantastical setup, Artisan say its “a story based around adult characters,” which it “provides a more fully grown experience and comprehensive dialog.”
