Apotheon is a heroic action game set within the vibrant world of Ancient Greek Mythology. Ascend Mount Olympus, wrestle the divine powers from the Pantheon of Gods, and save mankind.

We already covered the beta thanks to an article from Keizgon who covered it rather well, so we won't re-hash it, but it's great to see it officially out now.

Their announcement:
QuoteThanks to Ethan Lee and his FNA tools, Apotheon is now available for Mac and Linux!

Please post any issues with Mac and Linux in it's forum here:

On another note - thanks to everyone who enjoyed the game, after four years of development we are extremely happy to see a response like this!
- Lee and Jesse


About the game (From Steam)
The Gods of Olympus have abandoned humanity, leaving you to perish without their benevolence. Take up arms against the Gods, climb Mount Olympus, and take their divine powers for yourself to ensure mankind’s survival!
Apotheon is a fast and brutal 2D action game with a striking art style and heroic narrative based on Ancient Greek Mythology.

System Requirements
OS: glibc 2.15+, 32/64-bit. S3TC is NOT required.
Processor: Dual Core 2.5 GHz
Memory: 3 GB RAM
Graphics: OpenGL 3.0+ support (2.1 with ARB extensions acceptable)

Check out Apotheon on Steam and GOG. It's actualy £1 cheaper on GOG for me, odd.

Any clue how GOG go about determining windows/mac/linux sales?
I've been staring at this game on GOG for a little while, and I'll likely purchase as soon as I'm convinced there aren't any show stopper problems with it.

Since it's simply a website, and not a client (e.g. Steam), I would assume it uses tracker tools like any other site that display OS and web browser information you provide. Just buy it logged into a Linux desktop if you're worried.

Yeah, GOG uses your browser's user agent to determine which system requirements to display at least. When you browse the site with a browser on Linux you'll only see Linux system requirements by default, while Windows and Mac system requirements are hidden under a collapse. Setting your user agent to something gibberish actually results in no system requirements at all being displayed, so there's no default OS.

I try to buy from Humble when possible; that way I can get a Steam key and a DRM-free build ^^

Having a ball with it so far; though the performance does seem kinda shaky, I keep getting screen tearing and a bit of stutter in some areas. And while I understand all games, even 2D platformers, are getting more demanding, seems a bit strange on my GTX 760 & i7 4770

That said, the game itself is quite a gem. The combat is responsive and engaging, the visuals are lovely (if not confusing sometimes), and the voice acting is pretty decent. The comparisons to Dark Souls' combat are pretty accurate, but if you want the same challenge I recommend turning up the difficulty, as the regular enemies are pretty doughy

Did you use a frame counter to see if it was dropping in frames?... Because I thought the same thing for awhile but for me it was just the way running works in the game as the character constantly speeds up and slows down a lot. Other than the lack of a consistent run speed I am enjoying the game personally.

Bought it a few days ago, and it´s a really nice game! Runs great (except for one crash) on my GTX770.

It's also in the Humble Store, for €12 (instead of 15 in Steam... )

Finally! I had preordered it ages ago. The only game I've ever preordered.
