Hades roguelike dungeon crawler supports Proton

hades roguelike dungeon crawler supports proton linux gaming with mac windows pc

Hades roguelike dungeon crawler supports Proton Linux gaming with Mac and Windows PC. Thanks to developer Supergiant Games. Which now has a full release version 1.0 available on Steam. Plus some good news.

Hades is a god like roguelike dungeon crawler. One that also combines the best aspects of Supergiant’s critically acclaimed titles. Including the fast paced action of Bastion. Along with the rich atmosphere and depth of Transistor. While using the character-driven storytelling of Pyre. And most noteworthy, all of these titles are available for Linux gaming. So what happened to Hades?

So according the Steam comments, back in August 2019, there was hope. Since that point, and working our way into 2020, this view has changed. Stating, “I wanted to let you know that we don’t have plans right now for a native Linux build of Hades.” Where the developer also goes to expand upon the Proton explanation, as the only form of support. The same for the developer explanation. Admitting their failure and potentially misleading the community. Rightly so, seeing the community depends on developers to continue releasing native build.

Therefore, where do we go from here regarding Linux gaming? Well it looks like Proton will be our option. BUT… the studio also reached out via email stating:

We have been trying and will continue to try to make sure Hades works well with Proton.

Since this may not be the reply we all hope for. Supergiant Games “will continue to try” to make sure Proton support works. But does offer a workaround. Again, the community is already used to seeing cross platform builds from Supergiant. But once again, this is where the small market share of Linux gaming impacts native support.

Hades – v1.0 Gameplay Showcase

Still above all else, it’s exciting to announce the completion of Early Access development. So we can delve into the god like roguelike dungeon crawler, Hades. Now officially launching v1.0 of the game. Having played the game myself via the Epic store. The game remind of me of the addictive nature of Dead Cells. Which explains why one of more than 700,000 players who’ve joined in Early Access. Having fantastic time exploring everything the Underworld has to offer. And for the record, you might die… you know, often.

New surprises await each time you delve into the ever shifting Underworld. With guardian bosses that will remember you. Use the powerful Mirror of Night to grow permanently stronger. Giving yourself a leg up the next time you run away from home.

Permanent upgrades in Hades mean you don’t have to be a god yourself. But you can experience the exciting combat and gripping story. Though, if you happen to be one, crank up the challenge and get ready for some white knuckle action. It will put your well practiced skills to the test.

This is a rich, atmospheric presentation and unique melding of gameplay and story. Also the core to Supergiant’s games is here in full force. Expect spectacular hand painted environments. As well as blood pumping original score that bring Underworld to life.
