About Dead Cells
Dead Cells is a rogue-lite, Metroidvania-inspired action-platformer for Nintendo Switch. 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. Fight, fail, learn, repeat.
Interconnected levels and progressive unlocking of access to the island provides you with a real incentive to explore your surroundings. Add in a degree of evolution for your character and permanent weapon upgrades and you can see where Dead Cells borrows from the long line of Metroidvanias that precede it.
At the end of the day, though, it’s your skills as a player that matter most! Rogue-lites are about constantly getting better, until what was an insurmountable obstacle becomes a walk in the park. Unforgiving combat wed to the absence of any kind of safety net makes for an adrenaline-pumping ride each and every run, creating unrivalled replayability.
