In Mythwrecked, you'll play as Alex, a "rookie backpacker taking a much-needed break from modern life". She ends up shipwrecked on Ambrosia Island, where the Greek gods live - but they've all lost their memories. It'll be up to the player to help the gods remember their pasts and rebuild their friendships.
