I have been away from “regular games” for some time, been focusing my time in Blockchain games that I believe are more productive. With that said I had to buy and play this game. I’ve played games from this developers since -I believe- 2012 or 2011 and I loved them. They always have great story, gameplay, graphics and music. Games like Bastion, Transistor and Pyre. This time they are using all their experience and are making a very good game based in the Greek mythology with a very nice twist.
You play the role of Zagreus, the son of Hades who wants to escape the underworld and his “complicated” father. In the road you will get a hand from many of the mayor Gods of Olympus like Zeus and Poseidon and also from minor Gods like Athena, Ares, Dionysus and Aphrodite.
The Art is Amazing:
I’ve been playing the game for only 3 hours and the game is still in Early Access so this is more like a preview, but so far I can say the game is great. It’s a challenging game but it is very satisfactory.
