Motion Twin's Dead Cells is one of the standout indie releases of the year so far and for good reason. It's an excellent roguelike game mixing nonstop action sequences with gorgeous vistas and an addictive loop of unlocks and rewards. In our review, we gave it nine stars out of ten and said it was an absolute blast to play. It turns out we aren't the only ones who feel this way about the game.
Speaking to Destructoid at PAX West 2018, one of the marketers of Dead Cells said the title had sold exceptionally well on the Nintendo Switch since it was released. It's been so well received by owners of the hybrid platform that it's now outsold the PlayStation 4 version of the game by a factor of four to one. Unfortunately, no exact sales figures were provided. Stories like this illustrate the popularity of indie titles on the Switch. Other recent indie success stories on the platform include Hollow Knight and Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King.
