Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 raised $2.75 million for charity

Seven-day speedrunning marathon Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 has ended, raising a brilliant $2,758,847 million (around £2 million) for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. It's the second-highest amount ever raised at the event, right behind last year's winter marathon, which is pretty good going considering this year was the first fully digital AGDQ. Despite not having a roaring crowd sat behind them, the speedrunners still put…

The joy of loving Theseus from Hades

Supergiant’s rougelike smash hit Hades has taken the world by storm since coming out of early access in September. Unlike a lot of games, fans seem to be in total agreement on all of the game’s main talking points. For example, we all agree that Meg is hot. We also all agree that Zagreus is hot. That Eurydice is hot. That pretty much everyone is…

Top Steam releases for September include successful sequels and spooky spirits

Hear ye hear ye, here's the top releases on Steam from the month of September. As ever, some big names like Marvel and Mafia are on the list, and so are some long-awaited favorites like Spelunky 2 and Serious Sam 4. More interesting though are the weird indie breakout games. Yup, Phasmophobia's on there and you can't stop me from talking about it.

Supergiant artist goes behind-the-scenes on building a god in Hades

Hades is a bloody gorgeous game. There's no arguing that. But did you know that the enigmatic Nyx started life as one of the Fury sisters? Crafting a god is a strange process for mortal hands - but such is the job of the artists at Supergiant games, one of whom has this week gone in-depth on how the studio models, rigs, textures and animates…

Hades weapon Aspects weren’t originally going to be in the game

In Supergiant's new brilliant roguelike Hades, you're able to choose between six weapons (or Infernal Arms) to use to battle your way out of the underworld. Each of these then has four different Aspects, which changes the weapons' movesets and bonuses, allowing for really varied runs. It turns out, though, that Aspects weren't originally going to be in the game. One of the game's developers…

Hades composer teaches how to play one of its lovely songs in this video

Supergiant's games all have pretty wonderful soundtracks, and their new Ancient Greek roguelike Hades is no exception. We have composer Darren Korb to thank for that, and this weekend he released a video tutorial teaching how to play one of Hades' delightful tunes. It's not one of the heavy intense tracks from your battles in Tartarus, however. Instead it's one of the soothing melodies you…

Speedrunners have already beat Hades in under eight minutes

It's been a real blast over the last few weeks watching my pals and peers pick up Hades. The excellent mythological roguelike left early access last month, and seeing everyone post screenshots of their first clears and fastest times has been lovely. To any of you who think you've gotten good at the game with those cheeky 20-minute runs, however, I'm here to ruin your…

Supergiant lay bare the building blocks of Hades’ underworld

Out of all the -tober suffix trends, I think Blocktober might be my favourite. The now-annual level design hashtag has become a fascinating insight into the grey, blocky roots of all sorts of games. As a bonus, this year sees Hades developers Supergiant jumping onto the bandwagon with a distressingly art-free look at the mythological roguelike's level design process.

Every character in Hades placed on the Mulaney McDonald’s alignment chart

Extremely good game Hades got its full release recently. Allegedly a roguelike (but it cannot be, because I do not like roguelikes), in Hades the game you play as Hades the god's swaggering poshboy son Zagreus, who is trying to literally and figuratively escape his father's home. Hades the game makes full use of its setting and is stuffed full of great renditions of Ancient…
