Cythera is a role-playing video game developed by Glenn Andreas and published by Ambrosia Software for Mac OS 7-9.


Cythera features a point-and-click interface with user-positionable and resizable windows. In order to provide these features, the game was closely integrated with the Mac OS window system.[1] Upon starting the game, the player is presented with a choice of gender, portrait, and archetype—a preset combination of attributes, skills, and aptitudes. The archetype does not affect gameplay beyond character creation; the training points that the player receives at each level-up can be used to increase any attribute or skill, regardless of the chosen archetype.[2]


In the game, the downfall of the king is near, causing many factions to vie for his power. The player arrives shortly after the start of the struggle onto the island.
