  • This is really cool. My brother has been talking up Hades a lot recently and it got me curious into seeing what it was all about besides what he had told me. I just discovered this channel and this is the content I love! Game documentaries filled to the brim with heart and soul! The production levels are so amazing, I’m surprised you don’t just have these go straight to Netflix or DVD! You provide that level of quality, for free (with ads)! New sub, new fan!

    • Thanks so much, we're delighted to have you! Just so you know we don't actually put adds on the videos either. (although sometimes we can't help it if somebody else monetizes the video but we work hard to not let that happen). Welcome, and thanks for watching :)

  • For fucks sake, how many docs are you making from this one developer? They're all boring because the people are boring and the games are boring.

  • I'm surprised I never heard much about this game when it came out. I just picked it up and it's officially launched as v1.0 and I gotta say its one of the best games I've ever played. So good.

  • My dream is to be part of a team that's working on a such indie game. Infact, I have learned c#, java, python and web dev languages and I am watching videos to put a plan for a prototype. This is inspirational and how simple the game assets are yet the gameplay is rich and has depth in it

  • I wish I knew about these videos sooner!! I played the released beta on the Epic Games store a while ago to support it, but didn't stick with it not out of disinterest but not wanting to use the Epic Game store. To not only play it again and fucking adore it now, but for it to be so beloved and popular is so amazing! I've been a fan for so long

  • This wasnt a secret release, this was released on Epic Games store, which alot of people were opposed to because Epic Games is cancer. A year later and the Game is on Steam and people with actual souls can play the game now.

I really like how the edit is given the space to breathe - it really humanises the staff involved. Well done NoClip on another great series and well done to supergiant for a fantastic beast of a game!

Thanks for creating a fantastic game! and for it's price on Steam it's a steal!!! once I get more funds I'm buying all your games to support the devs so they can create another kick ass game!

    • Making the moment you get dropped back at the beginning not feel dull or demoralizing is a key aspect of making a roguelike feel good, and Supergiant absolutely nails it in Hades. Such a great game.

    • The game hasn't come out of early access yet. It already has 20,000+ Steam reviews and a ridiculous 98% overwhelmingly positive average on there, so I think they've been quite successful in how they rolled it out, even if it somehow passed you by.

  • I’m amazed by the level of composure and self discipline these guys keep to maintain healthy working hours and pace to not burn themselves out, understanding that it’s a long run, not a sprint. As funny as it sounds, it takes a lot of maturity and self control to just simply rest and not obsessively overwork, when you’re working on a passion project and feel all sorts of anxiety. Big respect.

  • maybe no one noticed it because it was exclusive on the most hated plattform for one year straight.

  • I love that they chose early access to work at their peak for longer...y'know instead of grabbing cash. Plus if they said the game we have now was finished I would totally believe it.

I was playing Path Of Exile league metamorph with two chars worth 20ex each above lvl 80...And I come playing Hades for 15 hours almost without break and it still dont leave my mind even after 6 Hades kills...I went to youtube searching for some videos of Hades development team and was not dissapointed by this one. Game just sharming and fun and I am in love with your studio guys. I very love that your games can compete with big AAA titles and win the place in my heart. All the muses, health and luck to you guys.
