Dead Cells is a "rogue-lite", metroidvania platformer. You'll explore a sprawling, ever-changing castle, assuming you're able to fight your way past its keepers in punishing combat. It's rather hardcore as there are no checkpoints. The objective is to kill, die a lot, learn from your mistakes, and repeat until you've conquered everything.
Today, the developer released a hilarious animated launch trailer. It perfectly encapsulates the feel of the game because it's all about experimenting with weapons and taking on larger foes. However, repeatedly getting killed is less hilarious when you're actually playing the game.
Not only does Dead Cells feature gorgeous pixelated visuals, but it's also a joy to play on Steam. The PC version features tight controls so hopefully, they'll translate well when making the jump to Xbox One. In a statement, Motion Twin Producer Steve Fliby said, "We're thrilled to finally confirm that we'll be bringing the Dead Cells experience to console players. We're proud of what we've done with the help of the PC community and can't wait to see how the gaming community at large react."
Dead Cells will cost $24.99, but if you preorder it you can get it at the discounted price of $19.99. The game should launch on August 7, 2018. The game is somewhat of a sensation on PC because it passed 600,000 sales on Steam Early Access alone, which could translate to success on consoles as well.
