Patch notes are imported from steam. There may be errors. This mostly exists so I can stay on top of them to update the features in our tags and scoring categories (which I do manually), but since many of you liked the idea of staying up to date with all the games in one place I'm working on making this data automated (right now I manually hit it every couple days) with better info and linking in with the game views.

There will be more data and proper atribution here (original author, steam link, original post date, etc) real soon, I promise. This is just like a technical test to see if they're coming in ok at all.

Hades » Hades: Nominated for Game of the Year!

EDIT: Congratulations to the winners of The Steam Awards! And our heartfelt thanks to everyone who voted for Hades. While we didn’t quite get there, it’s amazing to have been in the running.

On behalf of all of us at Supergiant Games, we are honored to see Hades nominated for Game of the Year in The Steam Awards! You had thousands of deserving games to choose from, ranging from some of the most spectacular blockbusters ever created, to some incredibly inventive titles from smaller teams like ours… and Hades made that short list. Thank you!! And now, voting begins to crown the winner.

We’ve been blown away by the accolades Hades has received thus far. It’s been selected as 2020’s Game of the Year by IGN, Polygon, Ars Technica, TIME Magazine, and The Washington Post, among others. It earned Best Action Game and Best Indie Game at The Game Awards, Best Action Game from PC Gamer, and Critics’ Choice and Best Indie Game at the Golden Joystick Awards. This is an embarrassment of riches, well beyond what our previous games have achieved.

These accolades have demonstrated Hades has what it takes to really impress critics. So, how about you? If you think Hades deserves to win it all, we humbly ask for your vote for Game of the Year, here in The Steam Awards. It would mean so much to us.

Regardless of the outcome… our experience creating Hades, and launching it to such a warm and enthusiastic reception here, is something we will never forget. Having played Hades, you know that the blessings from the gods are key to keeping Zagreus going. In turn, your kind words and support — your blessings — have inspired us throughout development, and we’re very grateful to be in this position at all.

So, thank you again. We hope you have a safe and restful holiday, filled with wonderful games.
