Hades is the latest title from Supergiant Games. Players take control of Zagreus, a son of Hades, lord of the underworld. He’s decided that his time in the underworld is over. He wants to leave and search for this mother, but Hades won’t allow it. Each time Zagreus falls, he’s resurrected in his father’s palace, but not only is he determined to escape, he’s willing to die a thousand deaths to do it.
