One day Keltoi village chief Wuotan summons his strongest warrior Freyja to embark on a long and dangerous journey.

Along the way Freyja and her party will battle deadly enemies, make new friends, and encountered long forgotten horrors!

Ability to switch between party members in the overworld to use their unique mechanics. An eclectic original soundtrack consisting of over 65 songs which incorporate elements from orchestral, noise, drone, breakbeat, and chiptune genres. A massive fully connected overworld with the ability to ride Speedsters to cut down on backtracking. Turn based combat system where each character has unique battle stats and mechanics. Collectible cards and combos found throughout the world that can be used during battle. More than 10 regions to explore including lush forests, cities full of kitties, electropunk metropolises, barren wastelands, and a dark mysterious mansion. Dialog and support systems that allow for further character development and stat boosts. A unique and complex overarching story line that ties together all subplots and backstories.

Towards the Pantheon feels like a turn-based Zelda game.

Well written, quaintly designed and only occasionally fatiguing, Towards the Pantheon fully embraces RPG convention, using the genre's familiar narrative themes and battle systems to provide an unavoidably charming fantasy quest.

Both Towards the Pantheon: Escaping Eternity and Towards the Pantheon are a must for any RPG fan or lover. The characters, the music, the artstyle, it has it all and it does it very well. The only reason it’s not getting perfect marks is that it froze once or twice in bad spots like me turning the final boss into a cow and because of how many times I died because of being stunned. But that’s it. Watch out for those and everything else is golden!

Towards the Pantheon is a masterpiece of story and gameplay as its main tale and subplots all find ways of joining together in the end. You will be sucked into the world that was created for those seeking the thrill of an old-time RPG.
