From the developers of the critically acclaimed Bastion and Transistor is Hades, a roguelike that swept up several Game of the Year awards in 2020 and cemented itself as a must play in 2021 and beyond.

Players take control of the son of Hades, Zagreus, and attempts to escape the Underworld and reach Mount Olympus in an adventure players will find themselves dying to more often than surviving, a fitting genre for a fitting theme. Rife with Greek mythology, Hades offers a both narrative and gameplay-driven experience with multiple branching stories told out over multiple runs.

Hades boasts one of the most robust run modifier arrays in the genre, allowing players to tweak their gameplay experience to be easier, harder, or more on the gimmicky side once they've reached certain persistent progression goals.
