Dead Cells Is Doing Some Impressive Numbers
The critically-acclaimed roguelike-Metroidvania game Dead Cells has officially sold over 1 million units since its release last year. Developer Motion Twin made the announcement at a GDC talk and also claims that 60 percent of the game’s sales were on the PC. They also mentioned that the Switch was the bestselling console platform.
Here’s an excerpt from our Dead Cells review:
“Therein lies the real beauty of Dead Cells. Every run feels special and memorable, which is something I can’t even say about Rogue Legacy (which is the best — don’t make me fight you). Will you find a bunch of upgrade scrolls and have a huge health bar? Maybe. Will you be stuck with the shitty rusty sword the whole time? Also maybe. Planning isn’t a thing here. You just roll with the punches, and hope you find the right gear to handle the next area.”
“By this point, you should know whether this is your kind of game or not. If tight, challenging combat, and infinite replayability in a charmingly depressing setting is your cup of tea, Dead Cells is the game for you.”
Dead Cells is available on Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
