Pikmin in Ancient Greece

Well, not quite, but Okhlos from Coffee Powered Machine certainly suggests what you might get if those yellow and red and blue Pikmin were actually old philosophers and angry soldiers and powerful heroes like Asclepius

The goal is to rally a mob of these good citizens of ancient Greece and then use them to defeat angry gods. Yeah, I can get behind that.

The game is due some time this year. Check out the footage, but maybe turn down your speakers because the retro music is maddening. (Maybe that’s the idea: you don’t want a calm mob.)
