Motion Twin have announced that their game Dead Cells, a well received punishing 2D platformer, will be released on consoles before the end of the year. So keep an eye out if you’re one for punishment!

You can see an announcement trailer here:

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 permadeath 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.
