It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time for another Indie Essentials!
Dead Cells is an Early Access metroidvania game with Souls-lite combat, created and published by the French studio, Motion Twin. I can already tell that this is a game that’s going to devour my time, and I couldn’t be happier! It’s got a beautiful pixel-graphics style with modern graphics effects on top. The soundtrack is neat, but that and the graphics both take a back seat to the combat – it’s absolutely spot on, and super satisfying! The game advocates playing with a controller (as you can see in the screenshot that is this post’s featured image), and I absolutely agree with that.
