The world has changed. The Gods no longer live on Mount Olympus: They walk among us. Lost in the scent of nectar and ambrosia, they were blind to catastrophe. The sun has set forever. Zeus has banished Apollo from the most exclusive of clubs, the Pantheon.
The God of the Sun was beautiful, powerful, successful. He was the best of them. What was so wrong about him? And who is going to be next?
Pantheon Club looks at peer pressure through the lens of myth. What drives someone to take an important part of their identity and drown it in silence? To never dare tell anyone else about it? Apollo’s fall from grace is a pretext for players to put their own silences in play, safely hidden behind Godlike façades.
