“By the Scribes, we gather in their names. To face the Nightwings here before the flames.”
In 2017 Supergiant games returned with the launch of their next game. A unique complement of high fantasy role playing game and pseudo sports simulator. Join Rich, Leah, Brian and James as Cane and Rinse makes a return to the Supergiant Games oeuvre to discuss Pyre, it’s prescient themes, and inspect what Supergiant learned from this experience to conquer the gaming world with 2021’s Hades.
[CONTENT WARNING. Pyre deals with issues of authoritarian governments oppressing and subjugating their population. This show heavily features discussion of ostracism, punishment, bigotry and revolution. Reference is made to the current ongoing women’s and human rights issues in the United States at the time of recording. Some listeners may find this distressing. Thank you.]
