The series, although titled to sound like an epic video game, is not a fantasy series. However, the comedy series's storyline does have something to do with video games. It displays the frustrating and chaotic environment of a development studio as it prepares to release its first big project.

The nine-episode long series, each episode half-hour long, will be based on the exploration of the human condition in an extremely amusing and fresh way of a video game development studio. The main star Rob McElhenney must feel right at home as he sets out to play a similar character with colossal ego and arrogance as he was in the 2005 series 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.'

'Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet' will be Apple TV Plus's second attempt towards the comedy line, after the streaming service's massive and well-received success of various drama and fantasy series lines up, such as 'SEE' starring Jason Mamoa.

Apple TV Plus is attracting a lot of talent, with several billion dollars being channeled into its content per year. Yet still, the streaming service failed to make its mark in their first Golden Globe Awards despite receiving three major nominations and yielding no wins. As to what impact the series will have in the box office, only time will tell.
