Wrath of the Gods script
Synopsis: Wrath of the Gods is a 1994 adventure-style computer game. It makes use of digitised backgrounds and sprites. The story is based on concepts and characters from Greek mythology. Billboard called it "a landmark effort in the realm of live-action games."

embark on a quest to discover his identity and reclaim his

birthright. From this point, you will guide Our Hero through

ancient Greece.

About This Guide

On the following pages, you will find a version of the

shooting script that was used to create Wrath of the Gods. To

make the characters of Greek mythology come alive, the

co-designers Jeff Cretcher and Joel Skidmore videotaped

costumed actors on an empty stage and then digitally

composited in backgrounds from photographs taken in Greece.

They used the original version of this script as their guide for

the video shoot and also for the computer programming of

the game itself. Later, when Marty Beckers was updating the

program so that it would run on the latest computers, he made

sure that the script exactly matches the experience of the game.

And we've added some of the background information written

by Joel that is available in the “Info Space” during gameplay.

Therefore this guide serves as a handy tool for learning about

the Greek myths while tracking your progress through the

game—with something like the omniscient perspective of a

god of Greek mythology!
