Supergiant Games, the team behind hits like Bastion and Transistor are turning ten years old as a studio and so they're doing a big sale. HADES will also no longer be exclusive to the Epic Store this year.
First up, the sales!
Over on Steam, you can pick up the entire collection of Bastion, Transistor and Pyre plus soundtracks with 78% off together. An absolutely incredible deal!
All their games are also on sale in a bundle and by themselves on itch.io for those who prefer it.
Some seriously good gaming to be had there for super cheap, don't miss out. Our contributor Scaine was certainly impressed by Transistor. My Son also started playing Bastion recently and he's very much enjoying it too.
After originally releasing Hades as an Epic Store exclusive, Hades from Supergiant Games is going to release on Steam in Early Access. It will arrive there on December 10th! Given how they've supported Linux for so long, I did reach out to Supergiant to ask about Linux support for Hades to which they replied:
Hey Liam, thanks for getting in touch about this. We don't have plans right now to support Linux during Early Access; during Early Access it's really helpful for us to be able to focus on the Windows version. We plan to bring Hades to other platforms at 1.0 (though which aren't confirmed), and appreciate your interest in the meantime.
It's also worth noting that Ethan Lee, the developer who ported their previous games to Linux said on Twitter they have kept in touch about it so here's to hoping!
Taking a quick peek into the Steam forum for Hades and—what a mess. Perhaps we can lighten up their Steam time by showing a little Linux support in this linked Steam forum topic. The developer did say in there "We've been pleased to be able to support Linux on Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre before this, so it's good to hear from you on Hades as well!".
