Mytheon - Interview @ Ten Ton Hammer
Mytheon's lead designer, Chris Rubyo answers some question to Ten Ton Hammer, such as:
Ten Ton Hammer: Your official site features a pretty prominent display of Poseidon (or Neptune, depending on your favored mythology). What can you tell us about some of the interaction with gods we’ll find in Mytheon? Is it simply about kicking the crap out of them, or are we going further than that?
Chris Rubyor: In short, The Fates have determined that man is ready to take control of his own destiny. They've given man the power to challenge the gods outright, and that's where these power stones come into play. The player sets out on journey to collect these power stones which will be used to kick some godly butt: Zeus, Poseidon, Hephaestus, Hades, and more.
At launch, Mytheon is all about challenging the Greek and Egyptian pantheons.
Ten Ton Hammer: With the expanding of the game, are you looking at other pantheons that you might explore? Everyone loves the Norse pantheon...
Rubyor: I can tell you that the core design behind Mytheon was built in such a way to seamlessly integrate new pantheons.

Mytheon - Interview @ Big Download
An interview with Peter Cesario, the director of product development at True Games about their recently announced game Mytheon can be found at Big Download.
Mytheon plans to use established mythologies as its basis. Why go this route instead of creating your own mythologies?
Well the team has a real affinity for different mythologies. Using established myths gives us an incredibly rich and diverse amount of source material to pull from to create a fun and unique game. Using established mythologies also provides players with an instant degree of familiarity. Where we are putting our own spin on these mythologies will be in the way they are woven together and in the way players are able to interact with the different mythological creatures.
Why were the Greek myths chosen for this first release and what other mythologies do you have planned for adding?
As well as being extremely rich in content, Greek mythology is arguably the most widely known of all the worlds' mythologies. Because of these two important factors it just seemed a natural starting point from which we can eventually branch out to several unique and interesting mythologies from around the world.
