Three days ago, Supergiant Games, the developers behind Transistor, Bastion and Pyre released their newest game Hades on Early Access. From what I have seen, it looks promising.
For a while, I used to avoid Early Access games like the plague but after playing My Time At Porta I have a bit more faith in Early Access once again.
Not to mention the company behind Hades. I adore Pyre and have heard very little negative comments about Transistor and Bastion.
So that is a game from a company I like, features Greek mythology and the story is intriguing.
Hades, you have my attention. What else do you have to offer?
The game is a rogue-like dungeon crawler and Supergiant Games promises that it will never the same experience twice. This is because each time you play you will face new challenges, use “the divine might of various Olympian gods with your own” and piece together the story.
I do like that the gods are usable characters and I’m interested in seeing how their abilities work. Also, I wonder if there will be other mythic characters popping up, like Medusa or one of the many Demigods.
Begin a Supergiant game needless to say that the art style is beautiful. On top of that Darren Korb has once again created the music for the game. I don’t know about you, but I love his work.
I am tempted to grab Hades now, after all, they even mention that if you get it now you don’t need to pay again when the full game is released. However, I have very little time on my hands and I don’t think I can afford a game at the moment.
I am keeping a keen eye on Hades, I’m looking forward to seeing how it develops.
Hades is available on the Epic Games store for $19.99/£17.99
