Someone built a Hades arcade cabinet and it's glorious

Hades has taken a lot of the gaming community by storm: including our own Game of the Year awards! Supergiant Games managed to slowly craft, through a carefully curated early access period, their most arguably successful project yet. So muc...

How Hades rejects the illusion of isolation in 2020

Between pandemic lockdowns and uncontrollable fires changing the color of the sky, it’s easy to slip into the thrall of learned helplessness. Twenty-twenty has been suffocating, but playing Hades gave me a breadth of insight. We&rsquo...

Review: Hades

The buzz surrounding Hades is spot-on, and it only took one failed escape from hell for me to fall in love with its isometric hack-and-slash combat. It's blisteringly fast but readable even when your screen is full of fiends. It's easy to p...

You can (and should!) go fishing in Hades

Will 2020 be the year we all become head-over-heels obsessed with Hades? I'm not quite at that point yet, but Supergiant Games' mythological roguelike action title has only grown more compelling with each passing update. The latest Early Ac...

Why Early Access is a particularly good time to play Hades

Hades feels alive in a way that previous Supergiant games have not. Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre were all created and released to the world; Hades, however, continues construction. Instead of creating a world to be released all at once, th...

You can now play Hades on Steam Early Access

A year after its Epic Games Store debut, Hades has found a ferry to Steam Early Access. It's a mythology-infused dungeon-crawler from the makers of Bastion, and if that premise isn't enough to warrant a curious click over to the Steam page,...

Go to hell and back with Supergiant's Hades

The Games Awards just let loose a trailer for Supergiant's next title. Bearing a strong resemblance to both Bastion and Transistor, Hades is a new action game where death is only the beginning. The details were vague, but I like the art sty...

The prose of Pyre's consequences

I can’t look at the night sky and not think of Pyre. Stars are a fundamental part of the game’s narrative. Not only do they guide your way, they act as a sign of hope. The cosmos lights many paths forward, and in Pyre, looking u...

Rich Meister's personal picks for Game of the Year 2017

2017 has been one hell of a year for games. While the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One continue to hit their software strides, the Switch is bringing Nintendo back to its glory days. PC gaming remains stronger than ever and I can't think of a yea...

Pyre has a challenging new campaign mode

Pyre players looking for an excuse to undertake another mystical adventure are getting exactly that with an update out now on Steam and coming soon to PlayStation 4. The update, "True Nightwing," introduces a new mode "designed to enhance p...

Pyre's fictional language has real linguistic roots

Pyre is the best game about strange rituals and fantasy sports ever. Sure, it's not exactly the most crowded market, but I can't get over how cool Supergiant's latest game is. It's full of interesting characters with solid writing, astoundi...

Live Show: Pyre

Allow me to start this post by being completely honest with all of you. I have NEVER played a Supergiant Games title. Not Bastion, not Transistor, nada. I know, shame on me, but I could just never find the time to play them when they were r...

Review: Pyre

Adventure stories sprinkled with apocalyptic hope, enveloped in beautiful art and music with an innovative gameplay element...a recipe that Supergiant Games is known for cooking, and its third game Pyre is no exception. Don’t get me w...

Supergiant's wild new action-RPG Pyre is out next week

I'm not sure that folks really get what Pyre is going for (speaking of: hey, here's an informative launch trailer to help out), but that might not be such a big deal after all. Supergiant Games has won over plenty of people with Bastion an...

Pyre is like a mystical version of NBA Jam and I love it

While I’ve known about Pyre for roughly a year now (having seen it twice at PAX East), I never got the chance to sit down and play the game. Since I’m a fan of Supergiant’s previous works, I just kind of figured it would b...
