An Urban Fantasy Murder Mystery Comedy Visual Novel!

Mythos is an adult visual novel game set in a fictitious version of present-day Baltimore. You follow the story of the main character – which you may choose to be male or female – as they learn of the mysterious death of their ex-girlfriend. Soon, the main character finds themself fumbling through the hidden society of supernatural beings that lurk in plain sight. Some of them are very much like the legends suggest, while others couldn’t be further from what one would expect.

Will our hero piece together the puzzle behind the murder of Lisa Harrison, or will they be consumed by new attention they’ve brought upon themselves?

Mythos will feature multiple choices to solve the mystery, and relationship paths that can be monogamous, harem-based, or even celibate (if that’s the kind of kinky thing you’re in to).

Try before you buy!

Not sure if you wanna pay real money for Mythos? No problem! 

The full current release is available on Patreon and SubscribeStar! If you like it, you can come back here and pay what you like, or you can be a Patreon or SubscribeStar supporter (that comes with benefits)! There aren't enough exclamation points to convey how exciting this is, so I'll just limit it to three!!!!! 

I'm bad at maths.

I'm loving this game so far. The characters are great, the writing is witty and entertaining, the story is surprisingly captivating. I love that while it's an adult game it's not just a shag fest. The story is what really shines here. Also the attention to detail is obvious in the scene transitions, nicknames, character introductions, etc. It really feels like a labour of love. In fact the worst part was that it ended and I have to wait for the next chapter. Keep up the great work! I can't wait to see what's coming next!

Thank you 9 of Swords for this novel!  

I really enjoy the storyline so far and how it is designed.  The art style of the figures and landscape were great as well.  I liked the nickname picks were programed in based on the first letter of the name you choose.  Also I liked how one could choose a male or female protagonist.  I have not seen that so far in visual novels.  I hope after you finish this novel on your next one protagonist choices are broader and the reactions of the supporting characters are programmed to react similar to how you have done so here.

I cannot wait for the next chapters to come.

i´d like to play u r game but there is slight problem i have...

when i load game its ok but, when i launch game and try to start it, it demands that i have to load game but how i load game if i have never played game before?

is it possible that i have got something bad file or something like that.

dang 5 time  at download is one i can play u should look if there is any corrupted links u share.

Oh, how strange! I haven't heard of this error before. Which version are you using (Windows/Mac/Android)?

windows but i figured what caused it.. u see i use my pc at work stuff too and there were some anti virus thing that prevented to load files correctly....

i need lots of security for my work so i didnt think that before i started to load game.

but its good now i also checked roots of those links and they are good and no malfunctions detected, and now u now what kind work i do.

Avast is my employeer.


<- reads your grammar 
gets to "Avast is my employeer."
now i understand why avast is so terrible


Hi, any chance you could add an itch.io app compatible download option? I like to download through the app so it auto updates games, thanks!


Well, I'll have to look into that now -- I actually didn't even know it was a thing! I'll see if I can swing it and mention it in an upcoming update. Thanks for letting me know about it!

Awesome, thanks! I only just learned about it yesterday, its very convenient

i knew there was an app, but didn't know it auto updates.. awesome. does it notify you when an update happens?


Yeah, it lets you know and you can turn on auto updates. Its extremely nice especially when I have so many games


I just found this AVN yesterday and can't wait to play more. I just want to say that I really appreciate having the choice to play a female MC almost no other AVN does that and what's more is that the female protag is really cute! I like your models as well, although I 've seen some before in other games I like how realistic and proportional they are and not have oversized parts. Time to continue playing!  


Thank you! :) So glad you're enjoying it!


Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at chrome-extension.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

    Try again later.

    Check your network connection.

    If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Is this for one of the downloads? Which one is it? I had to put this update in Mega because it's too big for itch, apparently. :(

EDIT: I fixed the download links! They should work now.

Just the fact you keep people updated more then alot of game devs already makes me want to play this. i wont give a vote yet because im waiting on the download now so i can try it out. but from the shots ive seen im sure i will love it.

okay finished playing it and now i want more. probably one of the better games i have played recently even if short.


I plan on playing this game just not yet

At least until more updates come out

Waiting for updates normally suck

Is this game based off of City of Mist?


It is not. :) The setting is completely my own creation (other than Baltimore being a real city, of course).


I really don't wanna know what celibate is, sometimes ignorance is for the best, but I do wanna know if the name is just for style or if it will in fact be based on Cthulhu Mythos. 

(And also please warn in advance if there will be "monster sex", rape or any crazy shit. I really am not into it, not at all actually)

Hi, there! The game has no connection to Lovecraft / Cthulhu lore, just historical "real world" mythos.

There also won't be any rape at all, let alone if the monster variety. :) 

Thank the gods there won't. And you mean like "urban legends" or creepy historical figures such as Jack the Ripper? Either way, I'll still play the game 'cause I really like games which risk walking the psychological horror path since it takes a lot of creativity. I'll make another comment more "review-oriented" once I'm done with it. 

Urban legends will be part of it, as well as more "traditional" mythology - vampires, fae, sorcerers, et al. 

Though I will warn you that I'm not planning on dipping into horror, since the story is mean to be a comedic murder mystery in the vein of films like Clue, Murder By Death, or (arguably) Knives Out. Not to discourage you from trying it out, of course! I just didn't want you going in without knowing what you were getting in to. 

I just noticed that, for some reason, the tagline wasn't showing at the top of the page, so I rectified that!


I'm back after playing through and I can say that this game isn't just any shit, it's THE shit. First and foremost, sorry for missing the genre of the game, I thought it was going be an experience inclined towards horror due to it's description. And honestly the dry, straightfoward humor of the game is much better! And you managed to blend it well with the mistery, like characters just having a nice, normal conversation with the MC, making jokes and what not until they "talk to much", y'know what I mean? The mood changes so suddenly.

So far the only character that I don't trust by one bit is B for MANY obvious reasons and that note is just one of them (sorry for not being specific, trying to keep everything spoiler-free), and the stuff about the MC makes me believe that everyone else he met including Tara are all involved but I could be wrong and she's just a loyal friend. 

On the technical part I believe that the only flaw for now is not having a "hide" button, but that's just a minor luxury, not really a flaw at all. And something that probably would be useful in the near future is a "relationship point system", since it got a bit confusing about knowing where I was going with each girl apart from Tara and Rain since both were pretty straightfoward on that matter. 

What surprised me were the animations which are almost 100% smooth, something VERY RARE for android. Believe me, I know. And I really liked the lorebook, it's really handy to have something like that in VNs that have a lot of characters, places, factions, etc. 'cause it means that the player won't need to wreck havok on his own brain to remember about a tiny detail that was mentioned ALL the way back in the first chapter, everything is recorded. 

I'll probably playthrough the game again with the female character just to see what changes and to go with different choices. The game has a lot of potential and I have big expectations for it. Can't wait for the next chapter. 

Thank you so much for the review! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

I actually didn't KNOW you couldn't hide the text on the Android version -- someone just pointed it out to me yesterday; I'm going to be fixing that in the very near future.
