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…

Hades now lets you share saves between PC and Switch

If you've liked Hades enough to buy it a second time, good news: you can now play the same save on both PC and Switch. Developers Supergiant Games last night launched the 'Cross-Saves' update on Switch, which lets you hook the game up to your Steam or Epic account and share saves through the cloud. So if you want, you needn't start over fresh and…

The nominees for every category have been announced, so it's time to vote for your picks for everything from the ever-competitive "Game of the Year" on down to "Best Multiplayer" and…

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.

Sorry, Hades will no longer have cross-saves on launch

Bad news for sexy demigods who wanted to bring their slaughter to the bus stop, I'm afraid. While Supergiant' underworld slasher Hades is still set to enter 1.0 this autumn, it'll no longer arrive with cross-play between PC and the incoming Switch release. That platform-hopping feature has been pushed back beyond Hades' release, arriving as a free update later this year.

Hades leaving early access in autumn, able to bring saves to the new Switch version

The rad roguelikelike hack 'n' slash action-RPG Hades will leave early access in autumn, developers Supergiant Games say, alongside the launch of a newly-announced Nintendo Switch version. Players will be able to transfer their save files between the PC and Switch to carry their progress over, which is nice. Hades has already received its last major update before launch, so now we're waiting on the…

Hades just got its last major early access update before launch

Hades has been in early access for over a year now, though you'd hardly know it—what with being on RPS's list of best action games already. Supergiant Games have now pushed out what they say is the last update standing between the hellish roguelike and an escape from early access. The Blood Price update is out now and the next big release will be version…

Someone drew the gods from Hades as adorable Animal Crossing villagers

Animal Crossing: New Horizons may only be on Switch, but that will not stop me from finding ways to talk about it in relation to my fave PC games. We've already seen loads of the adorable mashups of Isabelle and Doom Guy, frolicking amongst fields of demons, and now I want to show you the cutest piece of Hades fan art where someone has drawn…

Hades Nighty Night update includes punchy gloves and a tiny rat

Grecian roguelike Hades has taken one more step towards leaving early access hell. The Nighty Night update came out last night, unleashing some new spikey gloves, a trip to a library, and a tiny, evil, rat. There's loads more besides, but that new weapon, the Twin Fists of Malphon, is the highlight. I am looking forward to punching small malevolent rodents.

Hades heads onto Steam, no longer Epic exclusive

Good news, Epic Store renouncers. You can now play Supergiant's latest game without getting your fingers dirty, as Hades has landed on Steam and is no longer exclusive to Epic. The Hellenic action roguelike is still in early access, but it's also still really good. It's plenty polished, with swords that wallop and dodges that delight. I've played for dozens of hours already, and haven't…
