Dead Cells early access is now available for players on Steam. The Rogue-Vania game from indie developer Motion Twin features permadeath and Souls inspired combat, while unfolding across a Metroidvania style layout.
Dead Cells is a rogue-lite, metroidvania action-platformer. You’ll explore a sprawling, ever-changing castle assuming you’re able to fight your way past its keepers in 2D souls-lite combat. No checkpoints. Kill, die, learn, repeat.
The early access of the game features the following:
- 11 levels
- 20 monsters
- 50 items
- Hours and hours of gameplay – anywhere from 45 minutes to 30 hours or more depending on your skill.
The game is launching at 16.99 USD with a %15 day one discount, and the entire package will contain nearly half of the planned content, of which the developer anticipates will take 8 months to finish.
We just last week put together a preview of the game which you can watch below to get an idea of the roguelike with a twist gameplay:
The gameplay of Dead Cells looks promising even from the perspective of a masochistic player. It seems to be taking the best of things we love about games like Castlevania, Salt and Sanctuary, and Rogue Legacy and applying its own unique approach. Planning to pick it up? Let us know what you think about it.
