Dead Cells, a 2D roguelike and castlevania-inspired action-platformer was emailed in by Sintineddu and wow, the art in this one is fantastic.
The game listed Linux on the Steam Greenlight campaign, as well as that lovely tux logo being featured in the trailer there. It has been greenlit, so it will be on Steam when it's ready for Early Access.
Sadly though, going by their press page, Linux is planned for the full release and not during Early Access. Still, looks awesome!
About the game
Dead Cells is a roguelike, Castlevania-inspired action-platformer, allowing you to explore a sprawling, ever-changing castle… assuming you’re able to fight your way past its keepers. To beat the game you’ll have to master 2D souls-like like combat with the ever present threat of permanent death looming. No checkpoints. Kill, die, learn, repeat.
- RogueVania: Intense 2D action with the adrenaline pumping threat of permadeath in a castle full of cuddly creatures.
- Souls-like combat: Pattern-based bosses and minions, weapons and spells with unique gameplay. - Roll roll roll your boat gently down the stream…
- Nonlinear progression: Unlock new levels with every death, take a new path. Tired of the stinking sewers? Why not take the ramparts?
- Exploration: Secret rooms, hidden passages, charming landscapes. A fine place for a holiday.
