Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical reveals star-studded cast

Alongside new teasers, live performances, and much more, Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical revealed its star-studded cast on Critical Role’s Twitch stream.

The game, originally titled Chorus before changing to the name Stray Gods, puts players in the shoes of Grace, a college dropout who gains the power of a Muse. Unfortunately for her, this new power ultimately puts a target on her back, and she has to find out the truth behind her predecessor’s death before time runs out. No pressure!

Players must figure out a way in this modern fantasy world by using their charm, negotiation skills, or ability to strong-arm through conversations. Each choice comes with fully interactive musical numbers composed by Grammy-nominated composer Austin Wintory (Journey, Banner Saga), Tripod, and Montaigne, also known as Jess Cerro.

Stray Gods have previously revealed the voice behind its protagonist Grace and the character Apollo to be Laura Bailey (Critical Role, Uncharted, and The Legend of Vox Machina) and Troy Baker (The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, Uncharted) respectively. However, with the stream on April 13, we now know who else to expect when the game launches on August 3.

The Full Cast for Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical
  • Laura Bailey as Grace
  • Troy Baker as Apollo

As you can probably tell, that’s quite the cast, with voice actors who have starred in award-winning video games such as Apex Legends, Dragon Age, and Overwatch, as well as popular TV and films like Midnight Mass, Star Trek: Discovery, Young Justice, and more.

Whether we’ll get to hear all of the cast sing remains a mystery until Stray Gods releases on August 3 for PC.
