About Hades
Hades is an early access roguelike game from Supergiant Games, creators of Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre. You play as Zagreus, immortal son of Hades, on his quest to escape from the underworld, fighting through many angry lost souls along the way. Death is a mere inconvenience for Zagreus, returning to his room in Hades' palace each time to reflect in the Mirror of Night and try again. Receive Boons from the other gods of Olympus and find treasures to aid in each escape attempt.
