Version 1.0.5: More fixes for you!

We've managed to find and fix a couple of situations that would block progress: The leader getting stuck while transporting to the Minotaur's Arena. People getting trapped when a store closes. Gryphons that stay in midair if they lose their target. And we've also fixed some other issues that may have lead to some of the crashes.

Sadly, there still are some crashes and blockers in some circumstances we need to figure out (most notably the mob disappearing during Ares' fight), and we will continue working on them. But we will also start the process of upgrading the engine, which some research and testing has pointed out that is probably the only way to fix the problem that has been preventing people playing on some configurations (mostly Mac Pro with retina display and some 4K displays on Windows). If all goes well, this will also mean that cursor lock feature is also near.

Once more, I cannot stress enough how great the help and support of everyone who took the time to file reports, send logs and provide feedback! Thank you for all the love and for the patience with the issues!

New update with more fixes: Version 1.0.3.

Hey, folks!

We have just uploaded a new build, version 1.0.3, which should solve some of the critical issues that have been reported.

Among the most important ones is the sound issue that made the game completely silent on devices set to 192000 Hz. There is also a new fix for the Aphrodite crash that some people were experiencing, hopefully this time for good. And there is also a fix for the bug that made you skip levels if, after killing a boss, Pandora spawned enemies and you defeated them.

There are also some other fixes in this version, that aim to address a variety of other issues, but are going to continue working on the remaining problems (and any new one that may arise).

Asides bug fixing, there are two new things we would like to tell you about. One is that the OST is now presented both in MP3 and FLAC formats, instead of solely on MP3 as it was before. And the other one is that Okhlos' trading cards are finally up! Everyone should be able to see them now. We hope you like them!

And that's it for now. Back to work!

Olympus Edition

Okhlos: Olympus Edition includes a digital Encyclopedia, a collection of Okhlos prototypes, and the original soundtrack by A Shell in the Pit.

About This Game

Squeeze into your toga and slide on your sandals to rally the angry mobs of Okhlos and bring down the oppressive god of mythological Greece! Your beloved people will not longer stand for the abuse from their deities and take up arms against them and taking down anything and everything in their path. Topple the beastly minotaur, bring down sacred temples, and confront the almighty Olympians themselves while recruiting and balancing your unruly mob with warriors, peasants, slaves and even livestock in their quest for freedom from Mount Olympus! It’s total anarchy in the birthplace of democracy!

The people are angry and have united behind the noble philosophers to do their bidding to take down the soldiers, mythical beasts and temples under the control of the twelve vile gods.

Carefully recruit your followers from warriors, peasants, slaves and beasts of burden and unlock special units or swap units for one of 100 legendary heroes to upgrade the mob and increase their savagery. Wield the power of Heracles, Leonidas, Pandora, and Socrates to turn your mischievous gang into a formidable army!

Every campaign against the gods is different with changes to heroes, monsters, and bosses – and even the mob itself – each time you and your followers set out for battle. Traverse eight procedurally generated Greek cities and never fight through the same world twice!

Make your way through all manner of beasts, warriors, and demi-gods to arrive at the feet of the maleficent Olympians and unleash the power of the people in epic boss battles set against ancient ruins before they were ancient!

Loads of loud and bombastic characters, plenty of strategy and sheer chaos to go around for days and as many weird references to other Gods (as well as other DevolverDigital properties) as you could ever want. Once you get the feel for how the game works, building a massive mob and pumping them up with destruction and special heroes comes pretty easily and definitely offers up a lot of replay value. Highly recommended, I completed a successful run after about 5 attempts (although I've got experience with the game before launch).

This game is so f**king fun!! It has a great dosis of chaos when your mob is big and when it's not you have to change your attack plan and start recruiting more people somewhere else or your are doomed.

Excellent!

** 7/10 **

A fun little indie game that has been critiscised for being light on content but for the price tag packs an enjoyable enough punch. Plays like a Necromancer game, has decent variety on visual and enemy aspects, though some of the game mechanics feel like they don't have much impact, and enemy gods are frequently weaker than expected.

Okhlos is a roguelike from Devolver Digital, the same guys who published Enter the Gungeon. The game's main selling point is its chaotic gameplay - you rampage through 8 linear stages with your mob, looking to strike down the gods of Greece. A lot of the environment is destructible, making the game enjoyable on a weird, primal level. Your mob consists of various characters - citizens, warriors, defenders, slaves, and philosophers. The philosophers lead in this revolution against the gods - if your philosophers die, it's all over. You control a philosopher and the mob separately, but the mob can only walk within a certain range of the philosopher. You can command the mob to come together, spread out, attack, and defend. There are power-ups to collect and carry (via slaves), and traps to avoid. It's an innovative idea for a roguelike and absolutely worth picking up if you're a fan of the genre. The only major flaw is the repetition: 8 stages means you'll become very familiar with these environments very quickly. If you're not hooked on the core gameplay, the chaos and the Greek setting won't make up for it.

Okhlos is a gem, but it's a gem that might get dull if you stare at it for too long. Strongly reccomend to any roguelike fan; cautiously reccomend to anyone who isn't instantly excited by gameplay footage.

I just watched a mob of 50 people beat the ♥♥♥♥ out of Zeus. You know he had it coming.

Just when I thought 'this kinda feels like binding of isaac', I unlocked Isaac as a hero character. I even found Cannabaltos. The references and encyclopedia entries are hilarious, artwork is beautiful in it's own way and the sountrack is SO GOOD.

If you liked Binding of Isaac, you will love this one. If you haven't played both of these games, uninstall CoD, it's a start.

It's a good thing this game was inexpensive, because it wore itself out after about three levels.

It's a charming, funny, cute little game similar to Pikmin, where you manage a massive crowd of units and just sort of swarm things. They're color-coded and... Well, I hope you like big square arenas and unavoidable damage because this game has them in spades. Luckily, most of the unavoidable damage will just hit your units.

The pixel aesthetic does absolutely nothing but make the game more charming, it has nothing to do with what's going on and just kind of exists.

I'm glad I got it on sale, and despite the negative tone of my review, I didn't hate it. It just gets stale very, very quickly.

Okhlos is a very fun gmae in my opinion, although it does have some easily overlookable flaws. Creating mass chaos and growing your mob is very satisfying. I reccomend Okhlos if you like pikmin or rogue-likes. I honestly don't have much else to say about Okhlos except that I'm very much enjoying my time with it. By the way I got to the Final boss and the game crashed so that sucks.

Product received for free
Some people don't like the simplicity of an old-school beat em' up style game, and if that's you then fair warning - this game is built out of the same vein. While it still needs some polishing (and perhaps a greater degree of control over who is in your mob), this game is fun and that's all that really matters. The music is excellent and fits the game well most of the time and the enemies are varied in their abilities and can be quite dangerous.

The game is challenging without being masochistic and there are enough build options with the different heros to allow for tons of replayability. If you are looking for something to relax with after a stressful day, then this game fits the bill with it's wanton destruction of the world and the gods that rule it (plus it's fun to imagine your boss/coworkers as the various enemies).

This game has left me with a glowing first impression. I'll use this review to inform you of one of my favorite little details:

When reviewing the performance statistics of each unit in the Encyclopaedia, those statistics are *separated based on the sprite used for that unit.* This is fun for people who like to invent statistics like me! You can uncover, for example, which animal species in your army has the best KDA (hint: none of them); if the weirdos with the perpetual 'awesome face' eyes are actually pulling their weight; or even which ethnicity makes up the majority of your slave population. I like to think that the slaves in my rabble are implicitly freed - rather than working as slaves within the mob -, but I'm not sure if that's yet been addressed in the game insofar as I've played. I suppose everyone's a slave under the oppressive heel of Olympus.
