Dead Cells, a game that has become a minor addiction for me is going to officially release on August 7th.

Check out their fancy new trailer:

Here's what we've been told it will include at the full launch:

  • 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. 
  • 80 or so weapons and skills - Spears, swords, bows, freeze blast, etc. 
  • 4 special powers, unlocking new areas and paths (metroidvania gear lock items).
  • 1 Daily Run Mode Complete with leaderboards for lording it over your mates.

It's hooked me in a way I seriously didn't think it would. I honestly thought I would have grown tired of dying in it by now, but the gameplay is just so damn fun it's not even a struggle to keep going.

Find it on Humble Store, GOG and Steam, currently in Early Access with Linux support.

It's really good, but there's still issues with controller support (specifically the Steam Controller). Hope it gets fixed before release since keyboard-mapping mode isn't cutting it right now.

I agree, controller support is broken and sc-controller does not fix the issue for me. Will wait for native support.
