Watch: Smashing up ancient Greece in Okhlos
Hades game is fun.
If you've had a look at the Eurogamer video channel before (or read my Necropolis review, for that matter), you'll know I'm a big fan of roguelikes. There's something about the sense of challenge, the feeling of going it alone against insurmountable odds, that I really enjoy.
Okhlos, on the other hand, is a bit different. You aren't dealing with one lone protagonist, oh no; you have an entire teeming mob at your disposal, ready and willing to smash up every bit of ancient Greece they can get their hands on - including the gods themselves. It's a bizarre, almost farcical way to approach a roguelike, but is it fun?
Yes, frankly, it's ace. I'm not going to make you click the video to find that bit out. If you are interested in learning more, please watch on for angry citizens, colossal antagonists and politically active chickens. No, really.
