Hades is the latest game by indie developer Supergiant Games who are best-known for Bastion, their 2011 narrative ARPG. Hades is somewhat of a return to their roots. It is again a Hack & Slash, with fluid combat and gorgeous visuals and deeply integrated with its narrative. Its focus on storytelling is unique among roguelites, and its Early Access status is a good example of how to use the program.
