Released into early access on Epic Games Store, Hades quickly became a hit. After its full release, this roguelike was being discussed everywhere, and still is. Our own TJ Denzer had this to say about his time reviewing Hades:
Hades is another banger from Supergiant Games. That’s a fact. Throughout the entire journey there was little I could find to be mad at other than failing in my quest close to the finish line or getting a bad combination of power-ups that didn't work well together, but God Mode was there for me to soften the quest if I so desired. The game’s performance slowed a bit in rooms where there were a lot of enemies at once, but otherwise it was buttery smooth throughout. The mix of boons and upgrades provides delightful flexibility, the advancing and adapting narrative upon dying or succeeding keeps things interesting throughout, and the soundtrack is something I will continue to listen to inside and outside the game for just how ridiculously good it is. Whether you’re looking for a challenging action game or just want to enjoy a beautifully illustrated and orchestrated story, Hades might be my preferred recommendation for romps through Hell.
The sale on Hades is set to end on November 3rd on Steam while players on Nintendo Switch will have until November 5th at 8:59 a.m. PT according to the official North America Indie World Twitter account. Epic Game Store users can also expect a November 5th cut-off point for the sale. As one of the best Nintendo Switch games of 2020, you’re doing yourself a disservice if you don’t pick it up.
