Hades is the fourth game released by Supergiant Games, a company that has it’s foundation in the dreams of three people and the availability of a vacant house. Hades is a rogue-like dungeon crawler in which you defy the god of the dead as you hack and slash your way out of the Underworld of Greek myth. This game has been in early access for a year and is about to receive a major upgrade in September for Nintendo Switch, The Epic Games Store and Steam.
Bastion, the first title from Supergiant Games, is an original action role-playing game set in a lush imaginative world, in which players must create and fight for civilization’s last refuge as a mysterious narrator marks their every move. Transistor, a sci-fi themed action RPG invites you to wield an extraordinary weapon of unknown origin as you fight through a stunning futuristic city and Pyre. Pyre is a party-based RPG in which you lead a band of exiles to freedom through an ancient competition spread across a vast, mystical purgatory. During this time the team grew exponentially as they wrote code and created animations.
