Having sold more than 700,000 copies while in Steam Early Access, the developers at Motion Twin can’t wait for console players to see the finished result of their hard work in Early Access.
“We’ve been absolutely floored by the success of Dead Cells and the reaction of the PC gaming community.

Dead Cells originally released for PC in March of 2017. The game features rogue-lite and action-platforming in a constantly changing castle. The 2D pixel-art makes a fine compliment to the games side-scrolling gameplay.
