I started playing Hades (made by Supergiant games - same guys who made Bastion, Transitor, Pyre, and a few other games). It is extremely good.

It is a "roguelite" game where you are making your way through randomly generated dungeons in order to try and escape Hades. Every time you die you are reset back to the beginning, but the upgrades, weapons, loot, etc. that you gathered has you made you more powerful for your next attempt to escape. Since the dungeons are random on every attempt it really keeps things fresh.

The game looks beautiful, really fun to play, and has a great Greek mythology lore to it. It also has very low system requirements so should fun flawlessly on pretty much anyone's Mac.

It has been all the rage on Switch, so I was also planning on picking it up. I also hear from several people that it may be their game of the year, which is impressive.

I'm actually playing it on Switch, but it looks like it runs great on any Mac made in the last 8 years. Minimum requirement is a 2012 Mac, recommended is a 2013 Mac.

Definitely going to pick this game up sooner than later. The reviews have been unreal, and seem to address everything I hate about roguelikes.
