Hades Makes an Appearance at Bookstore in Recommended Section for Fans of the Game

Bookstore sets up a display of recommended books for those who are fans of Hades.

It’s unsurprising that Hades is up for the Game of the Year 2020 awards that’s happening this Friday hosted by Geoff Keighley. Even though it has stiff competition with the likes of The Last of Us Part 2, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and Ghost of Tsushima biting at its heels, Hades is simply gorgeous and stands tall with its interesting storylines, stunning voice-overs and unique character representation. Due to its popularity this year, the love for Hades has seeped out of the gaming world and slipped inside the world of literature as a local bookstore shows off recommended books for those who are fans of the game.

Twitter user deejay has posted about how they got into the festive swing of things by decorating their bookstore table and decided to splash around some books relating to Greek mythology with also a sign above the table that recommends it to those that enjoy playing Hades. As many players of Hades will know, the game is loaded with Greek Mythology references and stories so with some clever thinking, deejay thought that the sign was a great way to lure in gaming customers. You can check out the image yourself below but the eight books on display are in some way related to the game itself and especially great for those who would love to read in a greater depth all the things they’ve experienced inside the world of the game.


Deejay states that they almost put Percy Jackson in with the pile of books but, unfortunately, they didn’t fit on the small table. The Twitter users post caught the attention of Hade‘s devs at SuperGiant who thought the whole idea was awesome and what an excellent selection of books that they put on show. It’s a fantastic idea and I love that gamers are at the forefront of a bookstore display which gives encouragement to players who want to know more about the game they’re about to play or have just played. Maybe the display will also entice non-gamers to pick up Hades and give it a go for the very first time, too.

For those of you who already have a keen interest in Hades, maybe you would like to know more about the voice actors behind the game? The team at Supergiant shared a short behind-the-scenes video giving us a look at all the great talent that brings the character’s voices to life and you can check that out right here. If art is more your thing, don’t leave without taking a peek at an in-depth look into the creative process of Hades in some stunning images. Supergiant’s latest masterpiece has already seen a huge success, selling more than 1,000,000 copies and already selling around 700,000 copies in early access.

Hades initially launched into early access in December 2018 and since then, we’ve had updates that include The Long Winter in which brought Demeter, the Goddess of Seasons, into the game and also new boons, Guan Yu, a unique new aspect for the Eternal Spear and a fishing rod that allows players to fish in the Underworld. Hades is out now on Nintendo Switch and PC.
