Still: 'Hades' (2020; Supergiant Games)
This week’s show is about Hades, an all-action roguelike dungeon crawler set in the Greek underworld.
It’s not my usual genre, but it's by the acclaimed Supergiant studio who made Transistor, Pyre and Bastion, which bodes well for any game.
It took a bit of a journey to understand the mechanics, but it's a supremely entertaining game that earned my admiration by the end. It’s out now for Nintendo Switch, Windows and Mac.
