Syyskuussa 2020 julkaistu Hades saavutti nopeasti isosti menestystä, ja Gamereactorin arvion voi lukea täällä. Nyt sitten The Vergelle puhunut Supergiant Gamesin luova ohjaaja ja ääninäyttelijä Greg Kasavin on kertonut, että alun perin pääosassa nähtiin tyystin toisenlainen hahmo.
Päähenkilönä piti olla Theseus, joka kuitenkin on valmiissa pelissä yksi pomotaistoista.
"The idea was going to be like each time you play, it's kind of like a different retelling of the Theseus myth. So kind of cerebrally, he was interesting. But when we were trying to bring him to life as a protagonist, he has this risk of being kind of very generic. But as soon as we start adding specific detail to him, he just doesn't really feel like Theseus anymore."
"It turns out that there are not a lot of myths about Hades, apparently, because the Greeks were just afraid of him. So they didn't talk about him ... It's like, wait a minute. Hades is one of these super iconic like household name level, Greek gods. And yet there's so few stories about him and he has a son?
"We just found a better sort of angle on the protagonist, on the overall theme and on the storytelling technique as well in that one swoop. Things actually did come together pretty quickly from there."
