Roguelite? Metroidvania? Roguevania!
You grew up with the roguelikes, witnessed the rise of the roguelites and even the birth of the roguelite-lites? We'd now like to present for your consideration our RogueVania, the illegitimate child of a modern Roguelite (Rogue Legacy, Binding of Isaac, Enter the Gungeon, Spelunky, etc.) and an old-school MetroidVania (Castlevania: SotN and its ilk).

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! Roguelites 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 adrenalin pumping ride each and every run and unrivaled replayability.
  • 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...

Dead Cells left Early Access on August 7th 2018 and comes with:

  • 13 Levels - Each one with its own atmosphere, foes and secrets to discover.
  • 4 Bosses - Made by the most sadistic of the devs, raised on the salt of the testers.
  • 90 or so weapons and skills - Spears, swords, bows, freeze blast, etc.
  • 4 special powers, unlocking new areas and paths (metroidvania gear lock items).
  • 1 epic responsive, fluid and fun to play combat system.
  • 1 Daily Run Mode Complete with leaderboards for lording it over your mates.
  • Hours of fun (depending on your skill, anything from 10 to 30 hours or more).
  • A few rage-quits, Ok a lot of rage quits… But you’ll git gud… Eventually.

  2. Kill, die, learn, repeat, rage quit!
    by Leo D.8, Philippines - Jan 16th 2019

    So glad i bought this game. I love it. The visuals, the music, the combat all are awesome. The story was nice, but you had to go find it in lore rooms. I love games that don't feed you the story out right and you have to find it on item descriptions, from other characters or from some items you can interact with.

    This game has 3 things that I like in a wild mix: rogue like games, pixel art and metroidvania. Definitely a must buy for any fan of anyone of those 3 things i listed.
