Many already know that Supergiant Games is a game developer best known for their critically acclaimed titles Bastion, Transistor, Pyre and Hades. They decided to create a 12-hour long yule log video from the House of Hades to bring in some Christmas day ambience, since many will be stuck at home this year. If you’ve never played Hades, players take one the role of the immortal Prince of the Underworld, wielding the powers and mythic weapons of Olympus to break free from the clutches of the god of the dead himself.

Hades, a rogue-like action role-playing video game, has players controling Zagreus, the son of Hades, as he attempts to escape from Underworld to reach Mount Olympus. Each run challenges the player through a random series of rooms populated with enemies as well as gifts. The game also has a hack and slash combat system where you use a combination of a main weapon attack, dash power, and magic ability to defeat enemies while avoiding damage to progress as far as possible.
