Zeus, Aphrodite, Athena and the other Greek Gods on Mount Olympus challenge our hero Perseus to slay the Kraken,
the last of the Titan monsters… but wait! Perseus works in a strip mall ? Can our hero Perseus meet the trials given him by the Gods, or will he lose all that a minimum wage clerk holds dear in life?
Release the Kraken is a comedic modern retelling of the Perseus Myth, where the good must overcome such challenges as the mighty Medusa, the creepy Three Stygian Witches, two-headed dogs, and overwhelming desires to play XBox or Ultimate Frisbee.
