Hades recently left Early Access and released version 1.0 on PC and Switch, and players have been digging into all the little details sprinkled throughout the game. Now, in a brief Twitter thread about a tremendous reactive narrative moment, the game’s writer has shared some insight into the philosophy behind the game’s writing.
Polygon‘s Mike Mahardy noted on Twitter that Megaera, one of the Fury bosses in the game, chastized him during a fight for taking her own after taking on so many upgrades from the mirror in Zagreus’ room. So, out of curiosity, he reset his upgrades and fought her again–and found that she actually acknowledged that he’d done it after their discussion.
