Season's Greetings From Supergiant!

By Supergiant Games December 23rd, 2021

From all of us at Supergiant Games, we hope you have a happy and restful holiday season, and wish you the best in the year to come! We also wanted to take a brief look back at the year gone by. Here are the highlights!

Hades Everywhere!

Hot on the heels of last year's v1.0 launch of Hades on Nintendo Switch and PC, our big focus this year was to bring our most celebrated game to more places.

Earlier this year, we launched a physical edition for Nintendo Switch, the first time one of our games has been distributed worldwide on physical media. Then in the summer, we launched Hades for Xbox and PlayStation, including physical editions created in partnership with Private Division!

These latest versions of the game earned widespread critical acclaim, becoming some of the highest rated games available on the new generation of consoles. We're honored that Hades continues to resonate with so many players around the world!

Meanwhile, Hades continued earning prestigious awards, such as the BAFTA Award for Best Game (and four other categories!), the D.I.C.E. Award for Game of the Year (and four other categories), the Game Developers Choice Award for Game of the Year (and two other categories), and most recently, the first-ever Hugo Award for Best Video Game! It's been overwhelming!

Bastion Turned 10!

This summer marked 10 years since the launch of our very first game!

All seven of us who worked on Bastion are all still together at the studio, continuing to build on everything we learned back then. We couldn't have done it without you -- Bastion's success paved the way for us to make Transistor, which led us to Pyre, which led us to Hades. And here we are, just like that!

Supergiant Holiday Deals

The holidays mean different things to different people, but surely we can all agree that they're a great time to get new video games on the cheap?? Right now you can get our games on sale pretty much everywhere they're sold, including the lowest price we've ever offered on Hades. And since it's now available in physical editions, it can make the perfect gift! Note most of these deals expire at the beginning of the new year.

Thank You!

It's been more than a year since the v1.0 launch of Hades, and more than four since we first started working on the game. We're extremely grateful that it's continued to resonate with players around the world, and is now widely available on many of the most popular gaming platforms. The game's success is hugely validating for our team, and means we get to keep on making games together, which is exactly what we want. And while it's still too early to say what's next for us, we're eager to press on and find out. Thanks for sticking with us and for all your support!

Warm wishes from the House of Hades -- now a proud holiday tradition?!
