It is almost the holidays, which means that in the long tradition of the Internet, it is time for novelties, themed videos of Yule diaries. And this year brings a great new entry: the roaring fireplace in the House of Hades, from Supergiant Games’ Had.
The video is in a sharp 4K format, showcasing the lovely art of the game (one of our favorites this year): the fireplace is covered with gilded skulls and sumptuous marble, while a creeping pomegranate adds a touch of color to the process. There are also the basic sounds of any good Christmas tree: the roar of a fireplace with sharp, crackling logs. (It’s here Had spinning, with murmurs and echoes from the depths of the House whispering only on the edge of hearing.)
Yule’s diary fits in perfectly with Had alone, which sells for the holidays for $ 20 on the Nintendo Switch.
New Had the video joins a long-standing canon of great virtual fireplaces to curl up in, like the diary of the Eye of Sauron’s Flight, WarnerMedia, the slowly burning corpse of Darth Vader, the relaxing Scottish session of Lagavulin Nick Offerman, and The Vergeown exploding devices from the Yule diary 2016 (in memory of the Galaxy Note 7 and hoverboard fires that dominated the titles that year.)
The video is only 12 hours long, but you can always run it again (and again, and again, and again) until the holidays are over (or you’ve finally broken out of the underworld.)
