Renowned for Bastion and Transistor, San Francisco studio Supergiant is currently working on Hades–a process that’s being chronicled in the Noclip docuseries Hades: Developing Hell. The latest installment has just released and it’s a doozy, showing the Hades team navigating the pandemic, as well as break-in attempts at Supergiant’s San Francisco studio, as picked up by TheGamer.
The beginning of the documentary takes a sharp turn from showing the team celebrating Hades’ 98% positive rating for its early access Steam release, to the pandemic causing Supergiant’s offices to be shuttered with everyone transitioning to working from home.
In the June chapter of the documentary, the story takes another turn, with security camera footage showing a group of people breaking into the vacant offices during widespread protests in San Francisco. The group took off with “a lot of the [musical] instruments that we use to make the soundtracks for some of our games,” Studio Director Amir Rao described. “And a bunch of other stuff was taken, too.”
The footage shows Rao returning to the offices to film the announcement that Hades would be coming to Switch, and in the process showing off the “Mad Max barricade” that was put up in front of the office’s door to dissuade further break-ins–and there were more attempts, Rao notes.
It wasn’t just Supergiant having a tough time of 2020, of course. Noclip, which produced the documentary, also thanked followers for their patience with the latest installment. “We began production on this episode back in March not knowing what the world would look like in the future and whether any of our interviews or footage would be usable,” the Noclip comment reads. “So major thanks to Supergiant Games for being so open in interviews and for their trust in our vision.”
One more installment of Hades: Developing Hell is planned to release shortly after the game’s full launch. While there’s currently no set date for Hades’ release, it will be coming to PC and Switch before the end of 2020. The game is playable now in early access on both Steam and the Epic Games Store.
