ETAO Podcast, Episode 46.

Greg Kasavin descends and/or ascends to our realm to talk about Hades, Supergiant’s roguelike recently surprise-released into Early Access on Epic Games’ brand new storefront. We talk about how Hades both builds on and departs from Supergiant’s previous games (Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre), and then we talk a great deal about the infinite applicability of Greek myth to daily life—as stories about power, sure, and as stories about family, definitely, but also as stories about class, about immigration, and about studying competing accounts of history.

• Here’s the last time I talked to Greg (and here’s the time before that).

• Here’s the first episode of NoClip’s Hades documentary.

• And here’s Greg’s Hades interview with Gamasutra.
“All The People Say (Season 3)” by Holly Hyperion.
“No Escape” and “The House of Hades” from the Hades soundtrack by Darren Korb.
