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.

Have You Played… Pyre?

I’m convinced everyone at Supergiant Games were watching old episodes of Gladiators on the ITV Hub when they were making Pyre. I get the basketball comparisons, obvs, but it reminded me so much of powerball that I couldn’t help but wonder why referee John Anderson wasn’t asking me if I was ready at the beginning of every match.

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…

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.

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…

Hot god encyclopaedia by way of hack ‘n’ slash roguelike Hades was basically already game of the year when it released into early access in 2018. Its core components were all in place. You fight through a constantly randomised hell filled with monsters and bosses as Zagreus, sarcastic and perpetually titty-out son of Hades. Along the way, you can pick up abilities bestowed by gods…

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.

How Supergiant Games made the hack’n’slash accessible with Hades

Hades is a roguelike dungeon crawler that sees you fight your way through ever shifting levels of the underworld, from wispy shades of the undead to foes of Greek legend, on frantic battlegrounds that can send you to your death in an instant. As a disabled player, oftentimes I don’t have access to kinds of games like Hades. I have a connective tissue disorder that…

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.
