Here’s a great piece of news! At EGX 2018 I was lucky enough to spend some time with the PC version of Dead Cells, a Castlevania inspired, Roguelike Metrovania. Even the developer, France based Motion Twin describes it as a “mash-up, a veritable Frankenstein’s monster of a game”. I had an absolute blast with its constant changing dungeons with NO checkpoints.
Originally released on Steam Early Access in 2017, Motion Twin have now confirmed that it will be released on all consoles later in 2018. This is definitely one to watch later this year!
