So now you can explore the sprawling, ever-changing castle in this full release. That is if you ’re able to fight your way past its keepers in 2D souls-lite combat. Dead Cells has no checkpoints. Kill, die, learn, repeat. That’s the motto for metroidvania gameplay. And yes, you will die.
It’s been 454 days since we first introduced you to what we though was a half finished, reasonably well balanced but somewhat bizarre attempt at making a rogue-lite metroidvania. Man has it been some fun since!
With the help of all you equally half baked mad men and women, we’ve brought that little game to what we can now happily and proudly call “finished”. Well at least something that’s in a finished state for the time being.
We’ve written 47 of these update posts for you, well mostly Joan, but I do ’em every now and then too. We’ve pushed 79 updates including 10 major content additions or feature expansions. Plus probably a bunch of hot-fixes no one wrote any patch notes for, because the devs like to keep the people guessing.
Dead Cells Full Release Trailer (Linux, Mac, Windows)
- RogueVania: The progressive exploration of an interconnected world, with the replayability of a rogue-lite and the adrenaline pumping threat of permadeath.
- 2D Souls-lite Action: Tough but fair combat, more than fifty weapons and spells with unique gameplay, and of course, the emergency panic roll to get you out of trouble.
- Nonlinear progression: Sewers, Ossuary or Remparts? Once unlocked, special permanent abilities allow you to access new paths to reach your objective. Opt for the path that suits your current build, your play style or just your mood.
- Exploration: Secret rooms, hidden passages, charming landscapes. Take a moment to stroll the towers and breath in that fresh sea mist infused air…
While Motion Twin continues to work on the first big post release update. Since this will be a free DLC, or a big-ass free update, whichever is technically feasible. But this also means a a stack of new content.
So from here, From there Motion Twin will what we’ve always done and work with the community. If everyone gets over Sir Blobspierre, then the dev’s will make another game.
