If you haven’t heard by now, Supergiant Games’ Hades is a good game. Like, it might be the best game of 2020. And a big part of the appeal is the wonderful voice cast behind all the sexy Greek superstars you meet. Today, 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. Make sure to stick around to the end for an adorable surprise.
Hades is our first game with a big fully-voiced cast of characters! Our voice cast includes actors we've loved working with for years, plus some incredible talent who joined us to help bring our characters to life. Here's a quick hello from everybody!

— Supergiant Games ? HADES v1.0 is Out!! (@SupergiantGames) November 12, 2020
Personally, I’m always a bit amazed when I see voice actors drop in and out of character on the spot. So, while they don’t all do it in this video, I had a lot of fun seeing those Hades‘ voices I know and love suddenly dropping out of those humans. And, of course, the doggo treat at the end completely melted my heart. That cute little pup had such a great take on Cerberus. I really wonder if he employed some method acting with how committed he still seems to be to the role.
If you haven’t played Hades yet, you owe it to yourself to do so. The game is an excellent roguelike on its own, but the story-telling and characters really take it over the top. The voice cast is a big part of that. Though it has to be said that the writing is top-notch as well. As a big fan of the genre, it’s awesome seeing how far Supergiant has pushed the genre in terms of narrative.
Hades is available now on Nintendo Switch and PC. Given how popular it is, it would be a surprise if it doesn’t come to other platforms in the near future.
