HADES Special with Audio Director Darren Korb – Supergiant Games

(TSAP S04E01)

In our very first interview of Season 4, we’re starting 2021 like a Zagreus out of hell. This episode features Audio Director of Supergiant Games, Darren Korb where he tells us more about the game audio of their recent hit game, HADES.

Sam chats to Darren about his career so far, his 10+ years at Supergiant Games, the early access journey of HADES, creating all the audio, music as well as voicing the main character Zagreus (plus Skelly!) and more!

Big thanks to Callum Tennick for editing and mastering.
