Hades is near perfect, offering exactly what you expect and yet somehow exceeding your wildest expectations. From the art design to the gameplay to the narrative, Hades is proof of the incredible creative power that SuperGiant Games have been honing for the last nine years.

With its focus on multiplayer experiences and experimental design, this could become a fantastic library of titles once the community starts generating its own products.
