Welcome back to Postgame, Sidequest’s monthly Patreon-exclusive podcast, where the editors lay down hot takes on cold games. In this episode, we manage to warm up for a second and talk about one relatively spicy game: Supergiant’s recent blockbuster, Hades!
Do you have any pressing Hades thoughts? Let us hear ‘em!
Note: This episode covers broad beats in Hades—characters, relationships, story tone, and who the final boss is—but does not go into explicit story spoilers.
