MythForce everything we know

The 1960s were the epitome of Saturday morning cartoons. The classic animation adventures ranged from action-packed superhero adventures to comedic slapstick and educational programming. Some of the most iconic and beloved cartoons were produced during this time, leaving a lasting impact on popular culture. It is only fitting that a video game revival emerges, offering a delightful journey down memory lane.

MythForce is that kind of game that masterfully captures the essence of those cherished Saturday morning cartoons. Every aspect, from its vibrant and visually stunning graphics to the meticulously crafted narrative dialogue and the soul-stirring soundtrack, resounds with the spirit of those classic animated experiences. If you were fortunate enough to have grown up in the 20th century, MythForce is guaranteed to ignite a surge of nostalgia. How about we find out more? Here's everything we know on MythForce. 

What is MythForce?


MythForce is an upcoming roguelike adventure title by Beamdog. The game is a 1st person action-packed combat that infuses sorcery and swordsmanship. It brings a sense of nostalgia with its characters who are heavily inspired by the 80s Saturday morning cartoons. 

If cartoons like Thundercats and He-Man ignite a whirlwind of pure elation in you, you'll feel right at home with this one. Moreover, every aspect of the game exudes a sense of being back in your living room, watching the bulky, box-shaped TVs. 


MythForce sets off four heroes on an adventure to take over the tyrannous Eldryth and Daedalus. The two have a grip over the castle, laying various traps and setting off their minions on a voracious attack.

The game's Steam page unveils its description below:

“Inspired by beloved Saturday morning cartoons, MythForce unites swords & sorcery with gripping 1st-person combat in a new roguelike adventure. Brave the dungeon alone, or join forces with friends to take on an ever-changing Castle of Evil! Become a cartoon hero in a Saturday morning cartoon fantasy world. Scratch that nostalgic itch with wholesome fun that's easy to pick up and play (but tough to master).

In true roguelike fashion, each time you're defeated, you'll have to start over at the beginning — but every play through makes you a little stronger. Level up as you explore the dungeon, uncovering magical artifacts and upgrades to make you say, “I HAVE THE POWER!”. Become a cartoon hero in a Saturday morning cartoon fantasy world.

Scratch that nostalgic itch with wholesome fun that's easy to pick up and play (but tough to master). Wield legendary weapons and powerful magic to smite hordes of enemies in an immersive fantasy dungeon crawl through a colorful cartoon castle. Fresh adventures await with each new attempt to storm the keep! Explore a replayable dungeon with treasure, traps, and terrors lurking around every corner.”



The game is a 4-player co-op roguelike dungeon crawling adventure rendered in 3D. Players can either step into the shoes of the valiant Knight, Victoria, the wise Mage, Maggie; the vicious Hunter, Hawkins; or the charming Rogue, Rico. You can venture into the labyrinthine depths of the dungeon alone or team up with three other players. However, you must carefully select your characters, as each bears a distinct skill that they bring to the table. 

The game's setting is a vibrant castle full of terror and treasures. Using sorcery and swords, players work their way through various obstacles and hordes of enemies. The game promises to provide “legendary weapons and powerful magic” to take down the evil forces lurking in the vibrant cartoon castle.

Being a rogue-lite game, this means you'll spawn at the start after facing death. Fret not; the game uses a meta-progression system that allows you to upgrade between runs. Also, the castle provides a fresh adventure with every attempt you make. 


In 2022, Aspyr acquired Beamdog. Aspyr is well known for its remakes of the Star Wars franchise. Aside from the upcoming title, the studio is also working on the Knights of the Old Republic remake by BioWare. Surprisingly, the former BioWare heads, Trent Oster and Cameron Tofer, founded Beamdog.

Furthermore, developer Beamdog is not new to the gaming front. If you've played classics such as Planescape: Torment and Baldur's Gate, the studio is behind the exhilarating remaster of these Black Isle Studio games. It's no surprise that it's now going for a remake of the cartoons that defined the 20th century.
