Dead Cells
Dead Cells

Dead Cells is a rogue-lite, metroidvania inspired, 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.

Dead Cells

Roguelite? Metroidvania? Roguevania!

  • RogueVania: The progressive exploration of an interconnected world, with the replayability of a rogue-lite and the adrenaline pumping threat of permadeath.
  • 2D Action: Tough but fair combat, more than 100 weapons and spells with unique gameplay, and of course, the emergency panic roll.
  • Nonlinear progression: Once unlocked, permanent abilities allow you to access new paths. Opt for the route 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 the fresh air...

“A stellar action platformer with gorgeous presentation and excellent combat. Punishing but worth it.”
by Edwin Evans-Thirlwell
“The Metroidvania at its best: a swaggering role-playing beat-'em-up that's very easy on the eyes and dense with secrets.”
by Brandin Tyrrel
9.5 / 10
“Dead Cells fuses breakneck motion with an emphasis on risk-and-reward for an incredibly engaging action-platformer.”
