Hades has won Best Game at the 2021 Bafta Games Awards.

The Ancient Greek-themed action adventure was the big winner of the night, taking away five awards in total.

The title, made for PC and Nintendo Switch, has been commended by critics for its unique art style and distinctive gameplay.

Fans voted voted The Last of Us Part 2 as the EE Game of the Year.

Sackboy: A Big Adventure took the British Game, Animal Crossing: New Horizons won in the Multiplayer category and the Game Design award went to Hades.

It was the second time the awards ceremony was held online due to lockdown.
Completing Hades in the middle of a pandemic had its challenges but it’s something Greg Kasavin, creative director at Supergiant Games, will never forget.

“The trust that we put in each other – both was tested in some respects but was really just it’s what got us through into this,” he tells Radio 1 Newsbeat.

“It’s something to never, ever take for granted – that as a group, we all believe in each other in this way.”

Studio director and co-founder Amir Rao agrees: “Hades was a game that a lot of people played for a long time, and hopefully it helped them in some way, and they came out with a lasting positive impression as a result of their time with it.”
