(I've only watched a bit of Hades so I don't know all the details)

Both games have more in common with God of War than Torchlight / Diablo, they are both best with joypad and have direct control of the guy. But they have roguelike-style runs in the region of an hour a time, with permadeath and some meta progression in between runs. Hades has an overworld with characters to talk to and do quests for, which unlocks more content and progresses the story as you complete runs. Curse has a more basic system of collecting unlock currency to unlock the 3 chapters and buffs to start a run with.

Both are more indie in feel rather than AAA, but Hades is way ahead on looks with beautiful 2d artwork and a great deal more content. Curse is a bit more modest on looks and content but I think the combat system is fantastic as I said, and it's a lighter game that's easy to just pick up and play when you feel like it.

This game looks too good to be true. I never heard of this yet the trailer looks like a lovely blend of Diablo and Torchlight. What's the catch? Or rather, what am I missing?

Could someone shed some light on what this game (and Hades) makes different to Diablo (clones)? Dont the games have loot or something? Is this game rogue-like like Hades appears to be?

Either way, this game looks more like a Diablo clone than Hades. That is a good thing in my case, although everyone is walking away with Hades so I am somehow missing out on a gem, I guess. I just don't get what Hades really is when I look at vids.

Yeah inevitably this is going to live in the shadow of Hades which is pretty much a masterpiece. But to my boomer hands Hades is a bit too high speed with spammy attacks flying everywhere. I get on a lot better with the more deliberate style of Dead Gods combat with its focus on spacing and timing. The combat's extremely fluid and satisfying, and genuinely different with each weapon loadout.
